I like the school counselors because they truly care about the well being of their students. Braintree has a very diverse school that embraces all cultures. Their theatre guild program allows students to enter the national thespian honors society for those who like drama club either in cast or crew. Similarly, Braintree High's chorus classes are a great break in between all the classes. I like how tolerable to faculty of the school is. When I say tolerable I mean that they really connect with the students. One time, one of our most strict housemasters allowed herself to get pied in the face during one of our spirit week rallies. My experience at Braintree High allowed me to discover my passion for biology. I love working on the labs and having the experiences that real-life pathologists do except we dissect animals instead of human tissues. Students are encouraged to challenge themselves and are supported wholeheartedly by their teachers.

As a Freshman who's moved to this school, I wasn't too impressed. I'm very reserved and kids automatically pushed me out of the ability to be friends with them. And I was made fun of for my looks. I am an African American and the school was okay, but the teachers and admins are too judge-mental and I feel they do not have a high expectation for reserved, quiet, and darker toned kids. My grades weren't great because I forgot homework a lot, and my counselor noticed. So she sent home a packet of disabilities my parents were suppose to check off. I DO NOT have any mental delay, I am just quiet and they push too many hard assignments and classes out to children. Teachers 'reported' I would space out and look around the room when I was just observing posters. This school is just too judgy, my 2 month stay wasn't the best at all. Hopefully they're nice and move me to the 10th grade and don't keep me back.
The best part about braintree is the teachers. So many of them are dedicated to their students and job and the passion truly shows. Unfortunately, Braintree tends to be a bit racists and therefore it is evident in all of our schools. For some reason the racism is not handled properly and continues to happen. But racism is not the only problem. It seems that every group of kids that are not straight and white have a more difficult time at the school, whether it be being put in higher level classes or just feeling safe in the halls. I rate Braintree a 3/5 because it is quite academically successful, but they have a lot of work to do just like many other schools
