No school is perfect. But I am certainly glad that we have been able to send both of our children to Episcopal. One attended for 13 years (K-12th), and the other has been a student since kindergarten. Current administration is very people-oriented and approachable. Since the new administration arrived,

Many opportunities for the students in sports and arts, and academic choices are plentiful. Beautiful facilities. Parental involvement is very strong. And the lunches are delicious! I would not want to send my children anywhere else. Read less

I have been going to Episcopal for four years now, and it is easily the best school in Baton Rouge. Given the fact that Baton Rouge has very poor schools (U-high). The work can be overwhelming, but we have several long breaks during the day to go and visit teachers for help. The people who struggle at

I think Episcopal is the best school in Baton Rouge, because of its challenging academic programs and its desire for strong leaders at school and away from school. Read less

My family has been involved with Episcopal for seven years and I have seen many improvements in program, both academic and extracurricular during that time. Unfortunately, our level of trust has diminished since the current head of school began his tenure in 2010. Major changes have occurred with little
... Read more or no communication. Parents are discouraged from open discourse. Financial aid awards were completely botched. I heard that faculty contracts were not received until June. Programs that directly affect students have been slashed in the name of the budget, while many positions have been added in administration, landscaping, etc. My children have always loved the school-hence the high ranking. Personally, I am skeptical of the current priorities and wish we could return to those things that were valued by the previous head: academic attention and excellence, character development, and timely communication.

My experience at Episcopal has been fabulous. It is unarguably the best school in Baton Rouge academically. Most classes are strong, and while I'll admit there is the occasional poor teacher, you can usually avoid them if you take the AP or Honors route in certain fields. The student body is energetic

I feel like a huge number of new students have transferred to EHS throughout the semester and many RAVE about their experience at EHS vs. other private schools in the area. I do not feel like my class is at all cliquey- our entire class is essentially two large groups, which I would not consider 'exclusive.' Students can be slightly shallow and materialistic, but this is true for any private school similar to EHS. Read less

I am currently a student at EHS. I moved here from another school. At the beginning, everybody was nice, the school work was pretty easy. I liked it for a couple of months. I really didnt mind going to school. But now, everything is stressful and I get headaches all the time after school. It is only

If you dont have the right clothes, shoes, etc. There are many people who act as if they OWN the whole school, even though they are just students. The teachers are great, and they help the students alot. Overall, this school is pretty good. It has GREAT extra curricular activites, and many sports to play. Read less

I've read all the reviews on EHS, and it's clear that this used to be a great school, just a few years ago. It's a shame how it's faring now. The school has always boasted excellent test scores and successful graduates in the past, but as a student in the high school, I can't help but see how things

I've always been a good student, I'm in all honors and AP classes, but sometimes even I have a hard time keeping myself motivated to work through the mounds of homework assigned. I think it's a shame that the most I've learned this year is how to BS my way into mostly A's, and the occasional B. EHS needs to step it up, and get back to being the quality school that it should be for the high price of tuition. Read less

I'm a junior at EHS right now, soon to become a senior. This school is definitely an opportunity for your child to have a great education, however, in my opinion, you should start them out early. It is so hard to transfer in. Although next year, a schedule change will be more like other schools, it's

You constantly have to be on top of everything because if you get in a hole or your grades start going down, you are going to have to give up your life to get your grades back up. The worst thing is, when you are sick or have something else going on in your life and you have to miss school, in the back of your mind, at least for me and my friends, we are always worried about what we are missing in class.
