Best Public Schools in Coushatta, LA


The city of Coushatta, Louisiana is home to 5 schools serving students from elementary through high school, including 2 elementary schools, 1 middle school, 1 high school, and 1 alternative school. While the schools in this district serve a diverse student population, with a majority of African American students, they face significant challenges, including high poverty levels and uneven academic performance.

Among the standout schools in Coushatta, Red River Elementary School stands out for its relatively strong performance on state assessments, with 70% or more of students proficient or better in math for grades 3 and 5, and 65% or more proficient in ELA for grades 4 and 5. However, the school's statewide ranking has declined in recent years, and it serves a high-need student population with 98.1% of students qualifying for free or reduced-price lunch. In contrast, Red River Academic Academy struggles, with mixed performance on state assessments and a low statewide ranking, despite also serving a high-poverty student population.

The other schools in the Red River Parish district, including Red River High School, Red River Junior High School, and Ware Youth Center, generally perform below the state average on standardized assessments, with Red River Junior High School struggling the most. These disparities in academic performance, coupled with the high poverty levels across the district, suggest a need for targeted interventions and support to address the specific challenges faced by the lower-performing schools and ensure equitable educational opportunities for all students in Coushatta.
