I’m not a student from that high school, but my cousins are and I would go and pick them up and take them to do their school schedule for next years school. I think Brackenridge is one of the best high school I have seen and my cousin was able to do earn her Associates. The only thing that they should change is to be more organize when parents pick up their children’s because sometimes there is no space to park or there’s a lot of traffic. But overall is a great High school!

Throughout my 3 years in high school (freshman, sophomore and junior) my counselors and teachers were not that very helpful in regards to helping me make sure I stay on track with my classes. I enrolled to Brackenridge High School my senior year. The counselors, teachers, assistant principal, college bound advisors, etc were extremely helpful and welcoming. They have helped me stay on track for grades and attendance in order for me to graduate as class of 2020. They also have helped me find a great opportunity to go to college and get my degree and now this following year I have got accepted to multiple colleges and now will be able to pursue my dreams in the future. Although the school is at a low diversity, no one has treated me differently from the other. I would definitely recommend this school to anyone.
Brackenridge is just another run of the mill school, its only attraction is its multi-media program magnet. Brack has some mediocre resources at moments, for one instance our adobe programs for our multi media program did not work until a month or so into the school year. I've noticed that usually the elective and non needed class are the ones to host the more well rounded teachers, although unorganized at times. Usually the teachers within the core classes seem yo be plain and even rude at times. The administration seem to have this problem too.We have very few clubs and activities due to low funding, as it seems we take all funds into sports.While at times music and fine arts can become unorganized they are one of the best and most interesting classes i have taken.Now on college readiness where the seem to not push enough when it comes to college scholarships and FAFSA. Now i liked coming to Brack but the organization of this school made these years unsatisfactory.
