Crescent City Schools endeavors to build high-performing schools that serve all children. Since its founding in 2010, the organization has seen many successes. Some of our latest results include:

Additionally, the percentage of students performing at Mastery or above in Math increased to 33%, a more than 11 percentage point increase over 2015 achievement levels.
