Release of Top Growth data for the 2017-18 school year from the Louisiana Department of Education shows that Paul Habans Charter School ranked FIRST among all public K-8 schools in the city for English Language Arts (ELA) growth with 64% of its students meeting their targets and sixth in math with 58% meeting their targets. This places Habans as one of the top performing schools in Orleans Parish!
“Paul Habans is an open enrollment school that takes every student who walks through the door and moves them at rates comparable with the most selective schools in the city. Our teachers believe that all students can learn, and we believe that all families deserve access to high quality schools that value their child. We are proud of our students and staff for their continued growth,” stated Elisabeth LaMotte-Mitchell, Principal of Paul Habans Charter School.
“We believe that looking at student growth, meaning how much a student actually learns and improves from one year to the next, is a powerful measure of a school’s impact. These numbers validate the incredible commitment and hard work that our teachers apply to every individual student at Crescent City Schools. We are celebrating this accomplishment at our open enrollment schools and look forward to more growth in the future,” said Kate Mehok, Co-founder and CEO of Crescent City Schools.
