Message from the Superintendent

  • Message from the Superintendent

    To our friends, neighbors, and residents of St. Bernard Parish,

    The popular proverb - It takes a village to raise a child - resonates because of its clarity.  Together, schools, families, businesses, and the community ensure our children develop and thrive.  Each year, our school community unites around a single theme, and this year, we will celebrate those connections – in and out of the classroom.

    As a district, we know our strength lies in our ability to build meaningful, authentic relationships with our children, our parents, and  community partners. These connections help our students lead the state in both academic achievements and extracurricular accomplishments. 

    Our mission as a school system is to provide the children of our parish with a first-class, 21st century learning experience that will prepare them to be productive, contributing members of our community, and we look forward to working alongside all of you in fulfillment of that mission. 

    Thank you for your continued support of St. Bernard Public Schools. .
