Most of the teachers were extremely qualified and knew how to teach, the materials that they covered, and genuinely seemed excited to teach. The only problem I have with the school are the students and the lack of rule enforcements. Along with the lack of diversity, some students can be a bit close-minded and do not care or get reprimanded when they say slurs or make racist and sexist remarks. Overall, great school and education, but the school needs to enforce school rules or educate students more on diversity.
It is nice. The school environment is good. Most of the teachers are good and would push you to be great. The sports are a big thing in the school. You would have to have good grades to be in sports. They take sports very seriously, which is why the sports are the top. The education is also a good thing in the school. The education is better and advanced than many schools. They have other classes for those who would want to experience their major for the first time before beginning college. Everything about the school is great. The school wants the students to do their best and try strive for the better.
I graduated from Braintree High in 2020! Overall not a bad experience at Braintree High. Most teachers do they’re job very well. Lunches were not healthy or good tasting, and building needed to be updated badly.
Grades depended heavily on how lucky you were when teachers are assigned. Some teachers do not teach but rather talk at students and show little empathy or understanding while other teachers go above and beyond and truly care about the students and do everything in their power to help them do their best. administration and counselors do little to nothing, show lack of care and understanding when students have troubles, especially throughout covid.
I enjoyed the friendships I made. I did not enjoy most of the staff, who I feel did not do a strong job at teaching nor a strong job at making a safe community with people to trust. When concerns were brought up to the faculty, they brushed it off and ignored it and did nothing to make a change.
Loved this school pre covid. It had so many clubs and activities to get involved in. Loved all of my teachers as they were always available for extra help/questions when needed.
The school is quite solemn and dark but the staff is respectful. The students are disciplined and bullying or harassment of any kind is mostly untolerated.
I would like to see that there would be improvements in the way that people in underrepresented communities are treated and be more accepting of them.
Teachers and staffs are all very professional and supportive. They care about students and always try their best to help. The extracurricular programs are quite helpful and the staff here is very kind and helpful as well. The only downside of the school is the building condition. The building is quite dated and much need of repair.
The teachers and administrators at Braintree High are passionate about their jobs. The classes I took were entertaining, interesting, and engaging.
There were a lot of opportunities to learn and try out clubs or activities the school provided. I think they had a good variety of electives we can choose to take.
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
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 school is gross and old. there are lots of different levels you can take blah blah blah i need to fill up words
Overall, the school has its pros and cons but the school has provided me with tools for the future. I would also like the place to be remodeled so that we can use the bathrooms safely without fear of it exploding.
My experience was pretty swag here at BHS. Everyday I was welcomed into a exhilarating atmosphere and people who cared. I just wish these 4 years here could go by a lot slower.
It is a pretty average high school. I recommend not to drink from any of the water fountains. The athletic program is really good but we still have a horrible football team. It doesn't have a diverse community. The bathrooms are always filled with druggies. Lunch is like every other public school, not super good, kind of dry, but edible.
