Written by Aaron Williams on . Posted in Local

The West Baton Rouge School System recently climbed the ranks to become the 25th ranked school district in the state, based on 2013-2014 school performance scores.

The WBR School Board, last month, received the performance scores, showing an increased score of 4.6 points, bolstering the district to 25 out of 72 districts in the state.

“We’ve kind of been in the middle of the pack the last several years. So that jump in ranking is pretty significant for us,” said Dawn Henry, Supervisor of Secondary Education.
