Attending Brandon High School positively affected my life. There, I was surrounded by phenomenal teachers that pushed me to do my best. Due to my high school's wide variety of clubs and sports options, I was able to be plugged in and involved in many different areas. Many classes were offered which were taught by well-equipped teachers, including art classes, college classes, and theatre classes. My school principal's loved the students, even the ones who struggled. Their support of the students was truly shown at graduation as students walked across the stage hugging the principals. The experience of hard work, support, and love I've gained from Brandon High School have ensured me that I want to be a teacher just like the ones who have inspired me.

I went to Brandon High School all four years of my high school life. Overall, I enjoyed it a lot. I grew up and Brandon and went to Brandon so I knew pretty much all of my peers. They offer a lot of good classes that are taught by quality teachers. However when I was a junir/senior, there weren't many college dual credit courses. But, according to people i know that go there, there is now, which is good. We always had good sports teams and many sports/club options for students who enjoy that kind of involvment. The school was diverse and every type of person had others like the. Overall, I enjoyed going there.
I believe that Brandon High School is a top notch school in sports, performing arts, and academics. The majority of the students there are very smart and mature for their age. The only minor thing about the student population is that it is overruled by caucasians; there may be a few asians and hispanics but it will be hard to find them. The teachers within the schools can either care for there students as their own children or only show up to receive a pay check. There is a mix of both teachers. Any extracurricular activity from sports to performing arts is taken very seriously. BHS produces lots of talent within these categories. Though the con of trying to be the star of a sports team or performing art group is that it is picked by politics.
