For a third time, the Louisiana School for Math, Science and the Arts in Natchitoches has been named to Newsweek magazine’s list of 21 Public Elite high schools in the nation.

Four ‘sister schools’ also made the list: Illinois Academy of Mathematics and Science, North Carolina School of Science and Mathematics, South Carolina Governor’s School for Science and Mathematics, and Oklahoma School of Science and Mathematics.

LSMSA’s Class of 2009 earned a composite ACT score of 29, which was the criterion that triggered this recognition.

According to school Executive Director Pat Widhalm, “The school’s primary goal is to prepare students admitted to LSMSA for success in every aspect of college and career, and I believe that this is accomplished each year. However, we appreciate the recognition this provides to the talent and hard work of our students, faculty, and staff.”

The school draws students from more than 75 percent of the state’s parishes.
One hundred percent of the students are admitted to colleges and universities.

The Louisiana School for Math, Science, and the Arts is Louisiana’s only residential public high school for advanced 10th, 11th- and 12th-graders.
