Welcome to West Baton Rouge Parish Schools

  • On behalf of all West Baton Rouge Parish school employees we are excited to kick off the 2017-2018 school year.  Whether you are joining the WBR family for the first time or you have been part of our community for years, we look forward to getting to know you better and to working with you.  We know that our partnership is vital to the educational success of our students and the fulfillment of our mission: to Inspire Academic Excellence and Develop Student Character. 

    We are committed to providing a safe and nurturing environment in which all students can learn.  We believe that having high expectations and loving our students will lead to achievement beyond what most think is possible. Our goal is to ensure that our students have the different skills needed to be successful and pursue their dreams.

    We feel fortunate to serve the West Baton Rouge Parish Community and are more than thankful for your confidence in allowing us to teach your children. Thank you for your support and we look forward to a Magical Year of Making Awesome Happen.
