Welcome to the Falling Waters Elementary School website! 

The mission of Gretna Public Schools is to “accept all students unconditionally and maximize their potential”.  As a school community, we customize our programs to the unique strengths and needs of each individual child.  In addition to focusing on the whole child, we look forward to building relationships and partnering with our families and community!   

It is a privilege and an honor to serve the students and families of our community.  Please feel free to contact us any time with questions.

Take Harrison Street to 192nd Street and turn North.  Once on 192nd Street, turn West (left) onto Y Street.  Take your second right to 193rd Avenue and an immediate left on X Street.  X Street will take you directly to the school.

Once school is open, and an access road is built, parents will stay on Y street (which turns into Z street after a round-about) and come in from the south of the building.
