Provencal Elementary/Jr. High School

Message from Principal

Welcome to Provencal Elementary/Junior High School’s webpage. Thank you for showing an interest in our school. With the school board making the decision to close Cloutierville School, we have increased our student population to just over 500 students.

We look forward to working with the students and families from Cloutierville and hope to make their transition to Provencal as smooth as possible. Change can be a little frightening at times, but John F. Kennedy said, “Change is the law of life. And those who look only to the past or present are certain to miss the future.”

Many times I have heard people say, “Provencal is a good school.” It is my desire to lead the faculty and staff of PJHS to work closely with students and their families to ensure all students receive the best educational opportunities. Everyone working together will enhance student achievement. When all students are striving to do their best and parents and school staff are offering support and instruction, Provencal will be a great school!

Provencal has a very knowledgeable and dedicated faculty and staff. Our teachers attend professional development to learn the latest research-based strategies and access available resources to enhance their ability to meet the educational needs of your children. Our teachers believe regular communication between school and home is vital for your child to be successful.

We appreciate your support! Families and educators working together is crucial for our students to reach their full potential. We look forward to working with you and your children for the 2018-2019 school year.
