Welcome Message

Baton Rouge High School became a dedicated magnet high school in 1976 with the mission of raising standards and developing the artistic talents of its students.  Academically, the school provides the opportunity to build a solid college preparatory background.  The school offers fifty-four Honors, Advanced Placement, and Dual Enrollment courses that motivate students to excel beyond the normal challenge at each grade level. With the added benefit of earning early college credits, the school is unique in that it is the only high school in the nation with both streaming AM and  FM student-operated stations.  The Arts are alive and well at BRMHS!  Students who enjoy creative venues can find a vehicle for their talents in both the regular and talented arts programs.  Competition is at its best at BRMHS, and as it continues the tradition of having students recognized by the National Merit Scholarship Corporation. Although students do not have the traditional baseball, basketball, and football programs, students do have the opportunity to participate in field varsity teams for both boys and girls in track, cross country, swimming, golf, bowling, soccer, gymnastics, wrestling, tennis, powerlifting, and volleyball. BRMHS has won state championships in a number of these interscholastic sports.

“The legacy of excellence” continues at Baton Rouge Magnet High School. The facility of more than 360,000 square feet has an amazing program with the addition of an impressive library-media center, gymnastics facility, professional track, state-of-the art radio and television studios, along with an amphitheater and two black box theaters. The students bring, along with their academic prowess, a wealth of cultural backgrounds and richness of experience, unmatched by any other high school in the district. Continuing to build on the legacy of excellence established so many years ago, BRMHS is the place to train students for a world filled with challenges but vibrating with promise.
