Morris Jeff Community School, an open-admissions Recovery School District charter, is an elementary, community school whose grassroots approach to educational reform has created one of the most racially and economically diverse public schools in New Orleans. Morris Jeff’s mission is to offer an education that is a source of freedom and possibility for children, permitting them to develop their talents fully, become effective citizens in our democracy, and attain the foundation they need to excel at high school, college, and beyond. Morris Jeff Community School is a candidate school for the Primary Years Programme (PYP) and is pursuing authorization as an IB World School (International Baccalaureate). Located on Rendon Street before Hurricane Katrina, the students, faculty and parents are thrilled to have the opportunity to re-imagine and re-create a school named in honor of Morris F. X. Jeff, Sr., one of the city’s most dedicated children’s advocates. The name of this school includes a key term…community…which is central to our mission. A community genuinely focuses on education of children and supports them in all aspects of their development.
