For those moving to Prairieville, or Gonzales, or other areas of Ascension Parish, the school's website is a great source of information on public school district boundaries. You can click on and view the attendance boundaries of various public elementary schools and feeder schools for the high schools.
There are numerous sources such as Standard and Poor's or paid webistes to get a comparison of school performance, but be aware many of these ratings are based on past statistics so be careful as you evaluate various choices. Last August ACT Scores Properlled Ascension into the Top 5 ranking in the state of Louisiana. "When compared to the 70 public school districts across the state, Ascension scored exceptionally well ranking fifth. St. Tammany led the state with a score of 21.7, followed by Lafayette, Central Community, and Catahoula. Livingston and Ouachita parishes also ranked fifth with a score of 20.7." In Feb. 2009 Gonzales Middle School and Lowery Elementary School were both named as Top Implementation Schools for PBS (Positive Behavior Support) statewide.
Ascension Parish is a growing area with much to offer its residents.
