I just moved to Brandeis High School and I felt like I belonged the first day I walked in the doors! Everyone was so helpful and welcoming that it made my year of high school one of the best! Ive never seen a place where sport players seat with those who are alone, who are different, or new so they feel more like they belong. Because of the help that is provided when students are struggling I’ve maintained all A’s for my average sophomore grades. I’m usually bad at essay portions of the STAAR test. I went from a score of 8/16 to a perfect score of 16/16. I’ve never felt more ready for college than at my current high school. The lunch ladies, staff, custodians, and administration have made my experience, so far, really memorable. The only thing I would change is me attending this school from the start and being a Brandeis freshman first. Brandeis is the epitome of high school and success and I can’t wait to graduate in Orange and Blue! I’m proud to be a Brandeis Junior!

Brandeis provides many opportunities for everyone, they have over thirty school clubs for students to join. School spirit is huge, our pep rallies and cheerleaders are phenomenal they even cheer for the sports not as popular, such as softball. The teachers are very helpful, they all offer tutoring for those who are struggling or would prefer to get ahead. There is a room called the carreer center for those who would like to learn more about applying for college or even signing up for scholarships which is really useful for everyone. Another tool for attending college is during lunch the school allows representatives from colleges to come talk to students who are interested. Not many schools give students a great amount of opportunities for them to prepare for their future but Brandeis goes above and beyond.
Brandeis is an amazing school! It is truly the best school I've attended. I love how much freedom we are allowed. I have learned so much from the amazing teachers. They are truly passionate about the subjects they teach and the students they teach them to. Overall, the school prepares you for life with all of the class choices they offer and volunteer opportunities they have.
