Northshore High School

Summary:

Northshore High School is a public high school in Slidell, Louisiana, serving 1,681 students in grades 9-12. It is part of the highly-ranked St. Tammany Parish school district and consistently performs among the top high schools in the state.

Northshore High School is a standout institution, earning a 4-star rating from SchoolDigger and ranking 36th out of 321 Louisiana high schools in the 2022-2023 school year. The school's academic performance is particularly impressive, with significantly higher proficiency rates on End-of-Course exams compared to the district and state averages. Northshore also excels in supporting diverse student groups, ranking highly for its performance with female, male, African American, multi-racial, and special education students. However, the school faces challenges in serving its English Language Learner population, an area that requires continued focus.

While Northshore High School is a high-achieving institution, it is located near several lower-performing schools, such as Salmen High School and Slidell High School. This highlights the educational disparities within the St. Tammany Parish district and the importance of ensuring equitable access to quality education across all schools. Northshore's diverse student population and its ability to support various student subgroups are notable strengths, but the school's proximity to lower-performing institutions and the challenges it faces with English Language Learners underscore the need for continued efforts to promote educational excellence and equity in the region.

As you review the school rankings data, please be aware that some of the information from certain demographics is missing. The reason for this omission is that the data has been redacted from the source data itself due to low population samples in these specific demographic groups.

Redacting data from low population samples is a necessary step to ensure the reliability and accuracy of the results, as small sample sizes may not be representative of the broader population. Additionally, this measure helps protect the privacy of individuals belonging to these demographic groups.

Open Quote I am currently a sophomore at Northshore High. I love this school because it really is challenging and these teachers are excellent. I am in honors classes and they can b difficult, but that gives me the oppurtunity to learn more. I would definitely send my kid to Northshore or attend Northshore if I were you! Close Quote

Open Quote This school brings the better of every individual to their highest potential. They have a very strong discipline system that is not used very often as the children at this school are well behaved. The academics are wonderful, and they after school activities can keep any child in need of something to do busy.

Great school, if you're looking for one and this is in your district... Get right on it! Close Quote

About Students eligible for discounted/free lunch:

The National School Lunch Program (NSLP) provides low-cost or free meals to students in U.S. public and nonprofit private schools based on household income. Those with incomes below 130% of the poverty line receive free lunch, while those between 130% and 185% qualify for reduced-price lunch. The percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch serves as a marker for poverty, as it reflects the socioeconomic status of families in a given school or district. A higher FRPL rate typically indicates a higher concentration of low-income families, suggesting that the school or district may face additional challenges in providing adequate resources and support for student success.

About Student-Teacher Ratio

Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
