Welcome to New Orleans Parents Guide

Who are we?

New Orleans Parents Guide (NOPG) is a community organization dedicated to supporting the leadership of parents of public school students. We believe every child should have an excellent public school and that parents are essential to creating excellent public schools.

NOPG is a not-for-profit organization that supports New Orleans families in accessing quality public schools by providing quality and transparent information about school in New Orleans through the New Orleans Parents' Guide to Public Schools and the NOLA Parents Guide smart phone app. We also work with community partners to provide workshops and information sharing sessions to help parents navigate school options and learn from each other about how to advocate for quality public schools.

Parents' Guide 2015 is now available!

The latest edition of the New Orleans Parents’ Guide to Public Schools is now available at libraries, public schools, childcare centers and community organizations. The new guide features updated information about every open public school in New Orleans plus data about each school’s track record on a number of quality indicators.

The 9th edition of the Parents’ Guide also has an expanded section on school enrollment to clarify application processes and provide guidance for families attempting to rank their school choices. By providing information about school acceptance rates at many schools, the Parents Guide is responding to what parents said they needed to help guide their application decisions.
