We are Marie Riviere Elementary School, formerly known as East End School. We have been servicing neighborhood students from this location on Lake Avenue since 1961.
We are currently growing! We added 4 new portable classrooms for the 2015-2016 school year, and construction recently began on a permanent 8 classroom building!
Some figures about us:
According to the 2014-2015 School Report Card (the most recent available data), our school earned a 109 A on the Louisiana School Performance Score rating scale! This is our second year with an A rating, and we are the only traditional enrollment elementary school in Jefferson Parish with that distinction. Because of our students’ growth, we also earned the recognition of “Top Gains School”.
Here’s how our kids scored on state assessments compared to students across Louisiana. We are proud to say that we outperform the state and parish average!
|Student Performance||Our Students||State Average||Parish Average|
|Above Grade Level||44%||27%||27%|
|On Grade Level||86%||65%||65%|
|Below Grade Level||14%||35%||35%|
Of the students who entered the year working below grade level, over 75% exceeded performance expectations, compared to less than 55% of students parish and state wide.
Our current enrollment:
We service approximately 500 students in grades Pre-K through 5.
~75% of our students qualify for free or reduced price lunch.
