Kenilworth Middle School was built in 1973 as part of the East Baton Rouge Parish public school system.
In 2009, Kenilworth was converted to a charter school and was renamed Kenilworth Science and Technology Charter School. Pelican Educational Foundation, founded as a community-based, non-profit educational group, was awarded a charter by the state of Louisiana and took over management of Kenilworth. Since its conversion to a charter school, Kenilworth Science and Technology Charter School has consistently shown academic progress and now is one of the top open-enrollment schools in Baton Rouge.
The first principal was Mr. W. O. Moss. Below are a few pictures from its first year of operation 1973-1974.
