Braham Area High School has been the only school I have attended. Therefore, I do not have much to compare, considering other nearby school's criteria. While it is a very small school, they have been known for a great sports reputation. Though, through travelling sports, I have noticed small differences with other schools that greatly stand out.
In my personal experience, BAHS has treated me well. There is little to zero bullying within the school's property and teachers are caring to a certain extent. Overall, given the circumstances, I do not believe I wold have chosen to attend a different school within the district.

Severely underfunded school. They put money towards sports but not education. The school keeps cutting teachers and lost an amazing school councilor because they tried to cut her to part time. They then received a councilor right out of college who messed up student applications for PSEO (college classes). This caused students to ;loose the oppertunity to recieve free college credits.
Some of the teacher seemed unprepared. There are some of them who are very passionate and good at their jobs. Kids all get chromebooks which does help for some classes, but there are definitely those who abuse them. There are good resources for things from art to sports. They don't have a facs class anymore, which is a disappointing. However they do offer ITV classes for things like foreign languages and sometimes math. You also have some options for colleges credit classes.
