Broadmoor Middle School

Former Baton Rouge middle school is being transformed into an art-focused magnet school

Nov. 19, 2021
The school will be the first art-focused campus in the East Baton Rouge (La.) Parish district.

The East Baton Rouge (La.) Parish school district has approved plans to open its first art-centered school. 

The magnet school will occupy the vacant Baton Rouge campus of Broadmoor Middle School, which is in line for $15 million in renovations, reports The Advocate

The school will give local students opportunities to enhance their skills in music, film, dance, theater and visual arts.

Called either Baton Rouge School for the Arts or Baton Rouge Conservatory of the Arts, the school will enroll between 455 and 490 students in grades six to 12. It will open in 2023 with only middle school grades the first year and then add high school grades in 2024.

The school also will offer summer camps and after-school arts classes accessible to students across the district.
