My experience at Scotlandville Magnet High was very fun when I first entered my freshman year. The Student Government Association did a wonderful job with making my high school experiences fun. Although, there were some teachers who didn't really care about some of our educations there were some who went above and beyond for us. If I could change some things it would be how some of the dean's treated some students , such as the way they spoke to them. Overall my experience at Scotlandville was awesome and I'm glad I chose to attend it.

I have had an incredible experience at Scotlandville Magnet High School. From athletics to academics, everything is top notch. I have had the pleasure of participating in the engineering program at Scotlandville. I must say it's the best in the East Baton Rouge and possibly the state. I would recommend it to anyone.

Scotlandville Magnet High School is a great school to attend epesically if your interested in engineering or law. Scotlandville has one of the most high rated engineering programs for high schools in Louisiana. Being in the engineering program is one of the best things for me. We participate in so many real life projects and activities to help build our knowledge. We are also exposed to many engineering fields as well. Students also have the opportunity to do internships their eleventh grade year with an engineering firm. The law program is also a good educational program. Students participate in amply debates and they also travel and attend different mock trials. Overall I would choose this school again mainly because I was exposed to engineering which is possibly the career field i choose to go in. Only reason i would've chose to go to another school is because i don't feel like the teachers and classes fully prepare us for colleges. Our core classes aren't as challenging as I would like them to be. Also by me being in the engineering program I feel like I should be taking classes with honors students and given work strictly for honor students. Scotlandville Magnet High School has it's pros and cons but overall the pros out weigh the cons and that's why I would choose to go again if I could.
