A Message From the Superintendent
Welcome to the East Baton Rouge Parish School System, where we are building the future of Baton Rouge. It is an honor to have been selected to lead Louisiana’s second largest public school system and serve its more than 42,000 students in pre-kindergarten through 12th grade.
My goal is that every single member of the East Baton Rouge Parish School System team will recognize the importance of our charge. I have high expectations of myself and our employees. We are a customer-driven organization. Our focus is on providing the students of this school district with the best choice for quality education in the parish.
Our schools will be safe and orderly learning environments. As a parent, I know that safety is the single most important factor when choosing a school for your child. We must protect the learning environment in the classroom. Great instruction is our key focus, and it must be protected and honored. Disruptions to the learning environment will not be tolerated. I am confident that the leaders on our campus will carry out this philosophy creating an academic atmosphere second to none.
The East Baton Rouge Parish School System has a solid foundation, and I look forward to a successful future.
H. Warren Drake, Jr.
Superintendent of Schools
