WELCOME TO JEFFERSON RISE
to become a part of our diverse and supportive community where students, staff, and families come together to ensure each other's success.
Opportunities for diverse student needs
We offer honors classes, student support services, and college credits. Additionally, RISE offers daily PE and electives for all middle school students and a variety of electives for high school students.
Removing the barriers to academic success
We provide free transportation for all Westbank students, free meals, a free set of uniform shirts, 1:1 Chromebooks, and tutoring in all subjects.
Student success beyond the classroom
We offer a wide range of middle school sports and LHSAA approved high school athletics (football, basketball, volleyball, softball, soccer, and more). We are excited about our brand new regulation gymnasium that opened up this year. RISE offers a band program, afterschool clubs, student activity committees, and student leadership opportunities.
Founded by seven community members in 2014, Jefferson RISE Charter School educates students in grades 6-12. Located in the Woodmere area of Harvey, Louisiana, Jefferson RISE is a tuition-free, public charter school with no admissions tests or requirements other than residency in Jefferson Parish.
RISE supports a wide variety of students - from those that are eligible for advanced academies and honors programs to those that have struggled academically and behaviorally in other schools.
We focus on a high quality academic program coupled with social-emotional learning and a commitment to college and career readiness to ensure the success of each of our individual students.
