Capitol is More Than Just a Name
The biggest part of Capitol’s story is its legacy of pride, excellence, and tradition. The school made history when it opened in 1950 as the second public high school for Black students in Baton Rouge. Originally opened as a school for middle and high schoolers, the middle school and high school split in 1959. The middle school remained in its original location on what is now known as Gus Young Avenue, while the high school moved to its present location at 1000 N. 23rd Street. Since then, that facility has been the home of the Golden Lions. Today, Capitol High School offers an engaging and innovative curriculum that helps students prepare for the future of their choosing.
