    The LA Dept. of Education released school performance scores for high schools today. School performance scores for high schools are measured by calculating student proficiency in core courses through end-of-course testing, student readiness for postsecondary studies through nationally-based ACT tests, a school’s graduation rate index, and strength of diploma. Additionally, schools have the option to earn a maximum of 10 progress points for demonstrating significant growth among low-performing subgroups that exceed predetermined growth targets.

   Welcome to St. Mary Parish Schools
Superintendent Armato
St. Mary Parish is a school district committed to providing a quality education for all students. The district has worked to develop and maintain a reputation as an elite, proactive, and successful school district dedicated to student achievement as its top priority. As superintendent, it is my responsibility to place students at the forefront of all decision-making while supporting teachers with the necessary resources for effective instruction. Working together with stakeholders, my goal is to respect, support, and set high expectations for all employees to ensure a valuable, productive, and safe educational environment.
I personally invite you to discover St. Mary Parish from this virtual environment. In addition to district and school directories, the website provides helpful information such as school board policies, cafeteria menus, bus routes, and links to individual websites for each of our 23 schools. Parents are encouraged to obtain login information from their child’s school to access attendance and class grades through the Student Progress Center. 
Mr. Leonard J. Armato, Superintendent
