2015-16 School Year

The Cowen Institute Guide to Public Schools was created to provide a new way of navigating the ever-changing landscape of New Orleans schools. This guide provides three ways of exploring public schools. First, we have converted the Cowen Institute's school governance chart into an interactive tool. You can click on schools, charter management organizations, or authorizing bodies to learn more about the organization. The chart can also be filtered based on school performance, among other characteristics. Secondly, there is an interactive map, which can also be filtered based on a variety of school characteristics. Click on the school to learn more about it and also find links to map-based directions. Finally, there is an interactive table that allows you to download the school guides that are found in interactive governance chart.
