Parents please note that students will be receiving school supply lists from their individual teacher once school starts as each teacher has a different set of requirements for their class. Students will have time to acquire these materials.  Please send students with pencils and paper to get the year started and more specific lists will be given by their teacher.  Thank you for your understanding and we look forward to a great school year.

What's Happening

Congratulations to the students, faculty and staff of DJHS for their exceptional School Performance Score!

DJHS jumped 14 points to earn a rating of “B” from the Louisiana Department of Education. DJHS showed substantial improvement in every category on the state assessment tests.

DJHS was also given the award of “Top Academic Gains” for 2014. Very few schools in the state receive this prestigious honor.

The administration would like to thank the teachers and students for their hard work in making our school one of excellence.
