Message from the Superintendent
To all parents, students, employees, and community members of the Natchitoches Parish School System:
It is my distinct honor to serve in the role as your Superintendent of Schools. I am passionate about education and people. I believe that all students are capable of learning. I believe it is our job as educators to find the inner spark that exists in every child, and nurture it until it ignites a fire and passion for learning. As the great educational philosopher John Dewey said, “Education is not preparation for life; education is life itself.”
In Natchitoches Parish, our highly professional and incredibly dedicated teachers, support staff, administrators, and school board are committed to delivering the best education experience possible.
As we look to the future, in a world that is becoming ever more complex and competitive, it is imperative that our public schools provide children with a well-rounded set of experiences that develop the whole child.
It is my vision that the Natchitoches Parish school system will be a system that values all stakeholders, challenges its students and educators, and values equitable education for all.
The way forward is through collaboration and community. This is your system; be involved, be active, and let me hear your voice.
Superintendent Dr. Grant Eloi
