Provencal Elementary/Jr. High School

Jennifer Martin

Message from Principal

I believe the most used word to describe this school year has been “unprecedented.” On the heels of a global pandemic, the administration, faculty, staff, and students put forth great effort to prepare and conduct this school year to retain the high levels of teaching and learning at our school. As a result, all aspects of our school is thriving amongst extra safety guards in place to keep everyone healthy. I am very proud of our school for everyone’s positive attitude and approach as we put students first! 

Provencal School is a place where students are raised from PreK-8th grade to succeed at high levels and be prepared to enter high school academically, socially, behaviorally, emotionally, and athletically confident. Our school provides students with multiple opportunities to develop and grow during their early, intermediate, and middle school years. Tucked away in a beautiful, rural community, our students thrive inside our school equipped with modern instructional technology, 1:1 student technology, state standards aligned curriculum, remediation and enrichment programs, a powerful positive behavior system, and ample sports/clubs/organizations.  

Our highly qualified teachers are committed to making each year of a student’s first decade of formal education an exceptional experience. Teachers work as an action-oriented team to effectively impact their practice and study data to guide teaching and learning. Their great dedication to students has positively impacted our school’s success for several decades. 

Thank you to all parents and community members for supporting our community school and being involved in the educational lives of your children. The high level of parental involvement at our school gives our students a sturdy support system to develop, grow, and mature in these years. I agree with the saying “It takes a village to raise a child,” and I believe Provencal has the best village of people to raise our children.  Thank you so much. 


Jennifer Martin, Principal

Provencal Elementary/Jr. High is ready to welcome back our students for the 2020-2021 school year. Our primary goal this year is to ensure the safety of all students, faculty and staff. We have been hard at work to ensure our students and faculty have a strong start to this school year. Our school level Strong Start Plan outlines protective measures that will be taken throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. Please check out our Strong Start plan for more information on everything to expect for the 2020-2021 school year.

As required by state and federal laws and regulations, we submitted a plan to the Louisiana Department of Education in the winter of 2019 to support our school’s improvement.

We received approval of this plan from the Department in spring of 2020. Our goal is to keep you informed, today and throughout the year, on the implementation of our school improvement plan.
