Services & Impact

New Schools for Baton Rouge (NSBR) was founded in 2012 by community leaders to transform education in our community. Our mission is to ensure that every child in Baton Rouge has access to an excellent education.


Our core belief is that every child deserves a great school - especially those children that have been historically denied access to a high quality education. We believe that great schools empower educators with the resources they need to meet the individual needs and learning styles of each child, regardless of their background. NSBR strives to break down the obstacles fostered by a broken system, enabling all children to receive an education that unlocks their unique genius and prepares them for the lives of opportunity they deserve. 

NSBR has begun to prove what is possible for historically underserved students in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. After 10 years of work, we have the opportunity to fully deliver on our promise to the children and families of our community. If we can transform educational outcomes in the Capital City through choice, autonomy, and accountability, we can point to both a strategic model and slate of operators and partners prepared to drive transformative impact in other regions across the state.
