Scotlandville Magnet High School and the East Baton Rouge Parish School System will host a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the unveiling of a law courtroom at 9 a.m. Thursday, March 30, at the school, 9870 Scotland Ave.
Scotlandville offers several programs, ranging from its academic magnet program to the law and government program. The school’s Center of Excellence for Government Affairs is a four-year, full-day program for students entering ninth grade and interested in exploring law, law enforcement, the legal system, criminal investigation, forensics, and the study of criminal intent.
At the ribbon-cutting ceremony, participants will get an exclusive sneak peek at the modern high school courtroom, complete with a judge’s bench, the jury box, deliberation room and more. Students in the program will gain direct experience in the justice system with partnerships with local law enforcement, attorneys, judges, legislators and other members of government-related professions.
EBRPSS strives to promote a culture of educational excellence and to create transformative learning experiences for all students. The unveiling of the law courtroom is yet another demonstration of the district’s commitment to providing an enriching academic experience.
