There are several new schools in EBR opening up, all but two of them charter schools. Middle and High schools start at 7:10 a.m. Elementary schools start at 8:25. Brookstown Middle is a combo traditional school and magnet middle. Up Elementary is a new charter school with just kindergarten at old Glen Oaks Middle School. BR FLAIM II, formerly Polk Elementary, has a foreign language immersion program in Spanish and Mandarin Chinese. Five of the new schools, including Up Elementary, are part of the Recovery School District. Advocate story Comments As temperatures rose, ultimately topping 90 degrees, students arrived at Brookstown Middle Magnet Academy Monday morning dressed like they were at church, complete with blue blazers for the boys. Blazers along with white shirts and khaki pants comprise Brookstown’s student uniform for the 2014-15 school year, which started Monday in East Baton Rouge, as well as in East Feliciana, Iberville, Pointe Coupee and West Baton Rouge parishes. “When you’re dressed up, your mindset is better,” explained Principal Sean Joffrion, who served as assistant principal last year at McKinley Middle Magnet School.
