North DeSoto Elementary

is an “A”!


North DeSoto Elementary Schools have received an “A” rating for the first time in the accountability era with a School Performance Score (SPS) of 102.9!  Both the Upper and Lower Elementary value all the hard work of students, staff, parents, and the entire Griffin community.  Together we have worked to achieve our goal of increasing student achievement in our school.  We celebrate with DeSoto Parish School System who for the second consecutive year, has an “A” rating by the Louisiana Department of Education..
