Brandywine is surrounded by a stigma that the students are dumb, the teachers don't care, and everyone is irresponsible. Part of that is true, but part isn't. I was highly involved in the music department, which is small, but relatively stable. I liked that Brandywine gave me an outlet to express myself. The students themselves are mean people raised by parents that went to school in the district that feel entitled. I wish I never went to this school.

The best thing about learning at Brandywine Heights High School is how helpful the teachers are. They know about my hearing disabilities and help me whenever I need the help. They know my accommodations and know what to do when I need help with something. Their curriculum is also very well organized and they know what teacher teaches best and what is best for their students and their success in life. I enjoy learning at Brandywine and will for my last 2 years there.
I like how the teachers were always there for people when they needed them, during my time at this school I found that most of the teachers were very nice. The guidance office always has helped with questions that I have had over my time there, and has prepared me for my future outside of high school.
