Prescott Middle School to reopen in August

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - After spending a year at Istrouma High School, the students and faculty of Prescott Middle will be able to return to their campus this fall. Prescott Middle along with six other schools in Baton Rouge are operated by the state-run Recovery School District.

RSD Superintendent, Patrick Dobard, says repairs have been made to the school while the students were at Istrouma, and hopes that enrollment will grow once Prescott reopens.  There are about 200 students currently enrolled, that total is down from 2008 when Prescott was run by the EBR Parish School System.
