The teachers really are very exceptional here and the arts and music programs are the best. The students are diverse, yet harmonious. I'm happy to have had my high school experience here.

This one of your best choices for a public high school in Baton Rouge. It recieves extra funding and attracts talented teachers due to the gifted and talented program it contains. Excellent feeder school for LSU or SU football. Buildings need work like any LA public school. I am a 2002 Mckinley alumnus, and 2007 LSU alumnus
