         Homer A. Plessy Community School provides academics through the arts to all of Orleans Parish, but is rooted in the Bywater, Marigny, St. Roch, St. Claude and French Quarter neighborhoods. The hallways of the school reflect the diversity of the sidewalks of New Orleans. Diversity is a powerful tool in a child's education and environment, emphasizing the importance of citizenship and leadership, school reps said.

         Homer A. Plessy Community School opened its doors in 2013. School reps said the arts-integrated, projects-based curriculum provides a stimulating environment that insists on academic excellence in a developmentally appropriate setting for students in grades Pre-K through fifth.
