East Baton Rouge Parish Public Schools Reviews

I like my school environment and academic challenges, but the curriculum is falling behind other states. Though I go to one of the best schools in the parish, other student within my same parish are not getting the same educational opportunities. I strongly believe that the Louisianian school system needs to be changed in order to provide a better future for not only our state, but also our country.

The schools were recently refreshed with new labs and media art centers. Large amount of opportunity and diverse group of students. Well rounded education. Transportation has increased in quality within the last year. Students can come to school and learn and make the most out of their high school experience.
We actually can say we took something from out time in school. The administration are caring devoted individualize. They obviously care about what they are doing and enjoy making bonds with the student body. Extracurricular activities range from sports to fine arts and everything in between. Students are influenced by many different art forms and are able to find opportunities of these skills in the professional workforce. My time here has paved a way for future education and success in my lifelong endeavors.
As a student with East Baton Rouge Parish, i have enjoyed the experience and their amazing events to bring students together from different schools. They have made sure we are college ready and also gave us a fair amount of rest during holidays. I've been attending schools with EBR since day one and have had no problems with the system. In conclusion, i do no regret attending school from EBR.
