DeQuincy High gets 'A' with score of 101.7

By Adri LeBlanc

The Louisiana Department of Education has rated DeQuincy High School as an “A” school for 2017, with a School Performance Score of 101.7. DeQuincy High has been consistently rated as an “A” or “B” school by the Louisiana Department of Education every year since 2010.

Beginning in 1999, the state Department of Education has rated the quality of its public schools by issuing letter grades to schools based on the quality of a school’s performance. Louisiana high schools are rated based on four factors: student proficiency on five end-of-course tests, student ACT and WorkKeys scores, graduation rate--the percent of students who graduate within four years, and graduation index--a measure of how prepared students are for college or a career, with extra points earned for advanced coursework.

DeQuincy High has made great strides in each of these areas, most notably with exceptional growth in the ACT factor. Over the past three years, DeQuincy High’s ACT index score has increased by nearly 40%. Additionally, many students take dual enrollment and advanced placement classes through the school, allowing students to exit high school with credit for college coursework.
