PROSPECTIVE STUDENT/PARENT: I noticed on the website that the application period is from October 8 – November 26, 2018.
When should I apply?
Baton Rouge Magnet High School Admissions: You should apply as soon as possible.
What can I use as two proofs of residency?
The following items can be used as proof of residency: Mortgage Statement, Lease Agreement, Water/Sewerage, Electrical, Residential Phone Line bills. All proofs of residency must feature the name of the head of household. The bill should also be current for October or November 2018.
My student is currently in the eleventh grade and would like to attend Baton Rouge Magnet High School, when can I apply?
Senior students are not accepted into Baton Rouge Magnet High School.
I heard that there is a test that students must take this year. Is this true?
This is true for private/ parochial/public school students that have submitted an application and who did not take a norm referenced test during Spring 2018. Once a student is marked eligible, they will eventually be contacted by the East Baton Rouge Office of Magnet Programs concerning a testing date.
IMPORTANT NOTE: If a student who is currently enrolled in an East Baton Rouge Public School was not proficient (BASIC or Above for Math AND English Language Arts) on the SPRING 2018 Tests, he/she will not be allowed to retake the district assessment.
Is there a sibling factor that “guarantees” admission into a Magnet School?
If a student is currently a senior, the sibling factor does not apply.
However, if a student has a sibling who is currently enrolled in a Magnet school and the sibling will be in the tenth, eleventh, or twelfth grade during the next school year, then the sibling factor is considered for admission during the 2019-2020 school year.
What is my next step if I would like to indicate a second choice school?
Once you have submitted an application, you should receive a question prompt that says “Would you like to identify a second choice school?” If you would like to identify a second choice school, please answer the question prompt “yes” and click on the tab to add the information for the second choice.
Do I have to drop off a copy of necessary documents to a second choice school?
No, PLEASE DO NOT DROP OFF DOCUMENTS TO A SECOND CHOICE SCHOOL. THE SECOND CHOICE SCHOOL CAN NOT SEE THE STUDENT IN THE APPLICATION SYSTEM
