Magnet schools promote student diversity because they are open to students outside the normal school district boundaries and often attract high caliber students through competitive programs.

Baton Rouge Visual and Performing Arts Center Reviews
My children's school accepts students on a lottery basis, yet it is a 2012 Magnet School of Excellence. It is a brilliant testament to the fact that every child can excel given caring, engaged parents, faculty and staff. Each child grasps the material as the curricula is reinforced in music, physical education, creative writing, drama, library and art in addition to traditional classroom disciplines. We love our school!
This is a wonderful school for building a child's self-esteem. The children have arts classes (visual art, dance, music, physical education, drama, creative writing, library and instrumental music) twice a week and thoroughly enjoy it. Not only are the children getting an excellent academic education, but they are given the opportunity to experience the arts in detail.
