Brandon High School provided myself as well as thousands of other students opportunities to become leaders both in and out of school. I involved myself in JROTC, the Cross Country team, and the Student Technology team; both the teachers/coaches were very virtuous in how they taught/coached and have taught me many life lessons. One thing I would change about Brandon High School is that some of the teachers that do not teach advanced subjects need to either improve their teaching methods or be replaced by a more qualified teachers; I have been told by many people in the lower classes that they cannot teach well. Of course, this may be dependent on the students themselves, but I have heard this through many people.

I have been going to Brandon High School for four years now. I've really enjoyed every year because the teachers are helpful, nice, smart, funny, and kind. I have made many friends throughout the years because I am in band and the show choir Brio. The classes offered are challenging in a good way, I also like that there are AP and college classes offered. School pride and spirit is spread throughout the whole town during football season and it's really fun to get to play stand tunes with the band at football games. All sports teams are well known throughout the state and the art programs are well known as well. I am going to miss the pep rallies, the football games, homecoming, band competitions, Brio competitions, the teachers, my friends, and the people in my class.
I loved my time in Brandon High School, and you can tell they are really trying to prepare us for college life by the sheer amount of diversity in their clubs, academies, extracurricular class and activities, and etc.

The Teachers were also very good. I had many teachers that really cared about me, and we would ask after each other's families and activities in the hallways. Everybody worked really hard to make it feel like a home away from home.

One of the only things I regret about my time in the high school is the fact that I missed out on so many school functions. Most of that was a simple lack of information or connections to those who had the information I needed. Finding said information on the website or otherwise was very hard, if not impossible, and I would have liked it if I could've had better access to that sort of stuff.
