My experience in school was ok. College prep should be offered to all students regardless of what learning mode they are in (magnet, regular education, traditional, gifted...). I feel that schools need to take a different approach to getting kids excited about college. I think that college planning needs to begin earlier in the academic career, maybe 7th or eighth grade. Even though kids this age cannot apply to a university, they still need to be exploring their options. Society has too many misinterpreted the image of success. And kids who live in impoverished communities rarely even get the opportunity to see what success truly looks like. They need role models in their community that they can Identify with to mentor them. Counseling and mental health needs to be emphasized more in all schools, especially in failing schools and schools in impoverished communities.

My experience with EBR schools was one I’ll never forget. The great flood of 2016 affected my high school tremendously! Glen Oaks Magnet High hasn’t been the same ever. Renovations are being done as I write this letter, and I couldn’t be more excite about them. I would love to see not only my former high school become stronger than ever but also the East Baton Rouge Parish school system improve as a whole. One day and one step at a time I know we can make it great TOGETHER!
The only school district I've been in, and I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE IT HERE! Best teachers and the best schools in Louisiana. Even though we do have some bad schools, we have some AMAZING schools to make up for it. We are always trying to improve and we will never stop. Superintendent Warren Drake is amazing and is the best superintendent we've had in years!
