As a Senior, I have to say that this school is for the kids that are expressive, imaginative, and are passionate about what they want to be in society. Being a student here, at this school for 4 years is just hands down amazing! Because of the teachers piling on homework to the point where you have no social life at all. This school is the most diverse, academically challenging school in America. Again, as a Senior I am so glad that I'm leaving this school this spring.

BRH has been a positive experience for me. It is one of the most ethnically diverse schools in the state and students can express their cultures through clubs and performances. Academics here are stellar and get competitive at the highest level. Having taken both regular and AP courses myself, I can say that there is a significant gap in both class difficulty and expectations. Sports are average with the exception of the gymnastics team, which consistently wins state titles. I've participated in varsity and intramural athletics, and both are a great way to get involved. Unfortunately, because there is no football/basketball team, school spirit clearly lacks. As far as clubs go, most are laid-back and a chance for students to escape studies. Service clubs such as NHS and Beta are actively involved in the community. Also, the school dances get pretty wild.
Despite the high academic standards and large influx of assignments, tests, essays, and projects, I can honestly say that my last 3 school years attending Baton Rouge Magnet High School have been uplifting and psychologically strengthening. The vast diversity within the student body has allotted me the opportunity to share conversation and create bonds with people from all nationalities, sexualities, religions, and ethnic backgrounds. The faculty, administration, and staff are passionate about assisting each student in reaching their academic goals, and genuinely care about us as well. These are just some of the aspects that make me proud to call myself a bulldog.
