Principal's Welcome

We would like to take this time to welcome you to Pickering Elementary School.  PES is one of the top schools in Vernon Parish and Vernon Parish is consistently ranked in the top ten schools in the state of Louisiana.  We are proud of our reputation of providing an excellent education to our students.  We were one of a handful of schools that was awarded the “High Performing/High Poverty” Award by the Louisiana State Department of Education in its inception year.  We are one of a very few schools that have won the award for four straight years.  We have also been recognized by the Louisiana State Department of Education as a “School of Exemplary Academic Growth.”
