How is the Baton Rouge center for the Visual and Performing Arts School? I have been on Greatschools.net, but want to know if anyone out there has actually gone there or knows os someone that attends that school and if they like it or not.

I know several families at BRCVPA. They simply love it. But I do know a family who moved their child from there to gifted/talented (Buchanan) instead. That kid did not enjoy BRCVPA as much, but it might just be an isolated case.

Well, it's almost at the end, but why don't you visit the school? Just see the grade you are interested and talk to teachers and admins. We did that for our little one earlier this year.

I loved Buchanan when I was younger, I'm 23 now, I'm not sure how it is now, but it was really a great school back then. BRCVPA is by me, and I hear good things about it too. I also spent some time at Westminster as well. They have a good gifted program too.

I think Rep Cassidy kids go to BRCVPA and I also know few families (MDs, attorneys, and engineers) who have sent their kids to Westdale Heights Academic Magnet School. There are also plenty of LSU faculty families sending their kids to gifted/talented programs in EBR.

What part of town do you have to live in to be able to enroll your kids there (or is Louisiana a scool of choice state?)
