Benjamin Russell High School Reviews
Not only does BR focus on high quality academics and competitive athletics, they do a great job with training students on soft skills and student leadership. Things like senior blitz, student-led conferences, and Men & Women, etc... helps students prepare for life after high school!
Benjamin Russell High School is an amazing place to go to school especially if your are a determined student. Their are amazing teachers such as Emily Sassano and they are all determined to see you succeed. Almost all of the kids I know at the school are planning to obtain at least a associates degree at our local community college. Career tech classes at Benjamin Russell are defiantly something to brag about. Every day I receive hands on experience in classes such as shop(agriscience) and in art. Sports at Benjamin Russell are average and are glorified. Ben Russell is an exceptional school and is a great place to send your kids if your are academically focused and are planning to attend an amazing college!
Overall, Benjamin Russell is very college and career oriented. We are offered several opportunities preparing us for life after Benjamin Russell. There's something for everyone here, from arts to athletics to engineering programs. There's nothing better than a BR Friday night football game!
