Principal's Message

Our Vision

Belle Chasse High School will provide a rigorous education to all students to ensure they are college and career ready.

Allow me to tell you a few things you may not know about BCHS.

•   We are proud to be a 134.6 "A" ranked public high school.  We improved our School Performance Score (SPS) by 20 points and are proud to be one of the highest performing public high schools in the New Orleans area.
•   We are a technology rich school with state of the art computers and Smart boards in every classroom.
•   We have talented, caring and certified teachers who are rigorous, engaging and have high expectations for all of their students.
•   I am so proud to announce the addition of two new pathways for next school year: Agricultural Science I and II. Students will be able to learn horticulture, small engine repair, and small animal care through these courses and others.
•  In addition, we are excited to offer a new course called P-tech, which stands for petroleum technology. Students interested in engineering or working in a processing plant will benefit greatly from this course. Mr. Chris Louper, who retired from Monsanto, is our instructor.
•   Did you know that students at Belle Chasse High School are given the opportunity to earn college credit while taking certain high school classes? In addition, we offer additional hours of articulated credit and college credit earned through Advanced Placement (AP) courses.
•   Speaking of AP, we are so proud to offer AP calculus, AP Literature and Composition, AP Chemistry, and AP World History. It is my goal to add additional AP classes each year. Students can earn college credit if they score a 3-5 on the AP test.
•   Our 2011 seniors were awarded 1.8 million in scholarships last year.
•   Our athletic teams are very competitive and this year we had 9 of our 11 teams advance to the state playoffs.
•   We have many student activities during the course of the year such as Freshman football night, Freshman game night, Sophomore Red Carpet event, Junior Pajama Jam, Senior Hawaiian Night, Homecoming Dance, school dances, Junior Ring Ceremony, Class Olympics, and Prom at the Louisiana Superdome just to name a few.
•   Also, we are proud of all of our extra-curricular clubs and organizations that help our students have a well-rounded high school experience.
So now you understand why I am so excited and proud to be not only a 1988 graduate of BCHS but its principal as well. I have a great administrative team who works very hard to enforce strict discipline in order to provide students with a conducive learning environment. I also have a wonderful staff who ensures the campus is clean and well maintained.
 
Thank you for visiting our website. If you would like a private tour of our school please call me and together we will walk the halls during the school day so you can see for yourself what goes on day in and day out in our classrooms, hallways, and commons area. Please call my secretary Debbie at 595-6600 to set up your tour. If you live in the Belle Chasse school district and are considering sending your child to a private school, please come take a tour and give us a chance. After all, we are a great high school and we are free!
