"Success is the ONLY option."

Welcome to Glen Oaks High School, a tradition of excellence since 1960. The faculty and staff of Glen Oaks High School recognize the importance of providing and maintaining an educational environment which will ensure that all Glen Oaks High School students will develop certain insights, skills, and attitudes that will enable them to live a satisfying and productive life that contributes to the welfare of their community. This environment will be compatible with the realities and needs of society and will encourage the unified efforts of parents, community, and school.


The mission of Glen Oaks High is “success is the ONLY option.”

In order to fulfill this mission, the faculty and staff will work together to coordinate activities and strategies designed to strengthen the instructional program.  Success will be evidenced by students’ development in these areas:

  • Basic cognitive skills.  Each student will be able to communicate effectively in oral and written forms.
  • Necessary effective attributes.  Each student will feel he or she is an individual with both dignity and worth.
  • Critical thinking skills and practical applications.  Each student will be able to apply concrete data to abstract ideas and yield a premise.


During the historic 2016 Louisiana flooding, Glen Oaks Magnet High School received 2 – 4 feet of water in 17 buildings across the campus.  The only buildings that did not flood were the gym, H building, and the stadium, all of which are at “the top of the hill.”  Due to the extensive damage, GOHS moved to the Northdale Academy campus at 10755 Cletus Dr, Baton Rouge, LA 70815.  The school’s telephone number and mail were rerouted to the new campus.

We are extremely excited to announce that as of Monday, July 31st, Glen Oaks Magnet has returned to our original campus on Cedar Grove Drive! All administration, staff, and students are to report to that campus from now on.  We wish to thank everyone in the Central Office who have supported us and who are continuing to support us during this transitional time.  We also want to thank Northdale Superintendent’s Academy for letting us “borrow” their home for a year so that we we had a place to go when it was needed.  While we are certainly happy to welcome ourselves back home, we want to say the same to them – Welcome home Northdale!  May both of our schools have fantastic 2017-2018 school years.
