Edna Karr High School


Edna Karr High School is the sole public charter high school serving grades 9-12 in this area, located in New Orleans, Louisiana. With a total enrollment of 1,134 students, the school has a majority African American student population (89.68%) and a high percentage of economically disadvantaged students (74.51% receive free or reduced-price lunch).

Despite its consistent 2-star rating and ranking of 203 out of 321 Louisiana high schools for the 2022-2023 school year, Edna Karr High School has maintained this low ranking over the past three years, suggesting persistent challenges in academic performance or other areas. The school's student-to-teacher ratio of 21.8 is slightly higher than the national average, which may impact the level of individual attention and support available to students.

While the school serves a predominantly economically disadvantaged and African American student population, it also has a relatively diverse student body, with small percentages of Hispanic, Asian, Native American, Pacific Islander, and multiracial students. Understanding how Edna Karr High School supports and serves this diverse population could provide valuable insights to help improve the school's outcomes and better serve its community.
