Welcome to Livingston Parish Public Schools!

The Livingston Parish Public School System serves over 26,000 students ranging from Pre-K through grade twelve. We continually strive to upgrade our schools to provide a climate that enhances learning. Our instructional programs and other related programs and services are focused to meet the needs of our student population and the requirements of the State Board of Elementary and Secondary Education.

None of this would be possible without the continued support of the Livingston Parish community. For this we are very thankful.

  • Enrollment – Over 26,000

  • US News and World Report – 3 Top 50 High Schools of Louisiana: Holden High School (#16), Live Oak High School (#25), and Denham Springs High School (#43)

A Collective Why

District Headlines

To All, The administration and faculty of Livingston Parish Schools are aware of the community reaction to the Attorney General’s investigation of a former teacher in our district. In compliance with the wishes of the Attorney General and to protect the integrity of the investigation and the privacy of our students and their families, LPPS will not comment or discuss details of the matter until such time as the case has reached disposition. Our priority is the welfare of the children of this district and the preservation of a consistent, quality educational process during this stressful time.  Thank you for your continued support.
