The Tensas Parish School System adheres to the equal opportunity provisions of federal civil rights laws and regulations that are applicable to this agency.  Therefore, no one will be discriminated against on the basis of race, color, or national origin (Tile VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964); Sex (Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972); Disability (Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973) (Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act) in attaining education goals and objectives and in the administration of personnel policies and procedures.

Revised December 18, 2009

    The beautiful parish of Tensas lies along the stately Mississippi River.  This land of cotton fields and hardwood trees is reminiscent of the plantation era.  Historic homes such as Winter Quarters (circa 1800) and historic places such as the Tensas Library and Plantation Museum (circa 1850) grace this northeast Louisiana parish.  Tensas Parish derives its name from the Tensas Indians who originally inhabited the territory.
    Being only 50 miles from Natchez and only 56 miles from Vicksburg, Tensas Parish is ideally suited for a commuting teacher.  Highway 65 which connects these cities to Tensas Parish is an easily-negotiated, newly-surfaced roadway.  Currently, teachers within the system commute from Mississippi as well as Concordia Parish, Madison Parish and Franklin Parish.
    Blessed with fertile river soil, Tensas Parish is an agricultural region.  Cotton, soybeans, wheat, and oats are the main crops.  The rich soil also makes the area suitable for cattle production.  These hardworking, agriculturally-oriented people continually strive to improve community living as evidenced by the locally, recreational facilities and folk festivals.
