It is my pleasure to welcome you to Morris Jeff Community School. Our school is housed at 2 locations: PK-8th grades at 211 South Lopez, and high school students at 1301 N. Derbigny.  We proudly honor the legacy of our namesake, Morris F.X. Jeff, one of our city’s most dedicated children’s advocates.

We are an authorized World School of the International Baccalaureate Organization (IBO) in all grades, PK-12, the only school in Louisiana with that distinction.  We have built a program of study that is both developmentally appropriate for students and challenging to their growth and academic success.

We believe that when a community genuinely focuses on the education of children and supports them in all aspects of their development, we contribute to producing engaged, talented, creative and caring young people who are prepared to contribute to our world in a powerful way. Our students will be prepared to be tomorrow’s leaders.

I am excited to work together with each of you as we continue to build a strong community around our students. Welcome to Morris Jeff Community School.  I hope you feel at home here.

Patricia M. Perkins, Head of School
