BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

An educational group said they're trying to highlight some of the different options for East Baton Rouge students.

The Black Alliance for Educational Options spent Tuesday evening with parents showcasing some "hidden gems" of the East Baton Rouge Parish School System.

"We're hoping that parents will learn of all of these awesome options that are in our school system and take advantage of it to possibly open up new doors for their children that they may not have thought about before," said Alkinee Jackson with BAEO.

Organizers showed off things like the various magnet programs, gifted and talented and even a new robotics program that is coming to Capitol Middle School.
