Brandywine High School in my opinion is amazing. The students get along very well, we as seniors make sure we help the underclassmen out with whatever they need assistance in. Our sports teams are big families. We support all sports whether we win or lose. The teachers are excellent, they help us achieve and go beyond our academic goals. Our AP teachers are harder on the students so that when we get to college it will be a bit easier since we will be used to the work. I would like to see more programs at Brandywine High School. Programs that are offered to all grade levels and not just one single one.

I had a very enjoyed time at Brandywine High school. The school really motivates the student body to get into extracurricular activities. I was part of the Volleyball team and a team manager for the boys and girls Basketball teams. I was part of the Art Club, Key Club, Drama Club and was in National Honor Society. The facuilty wants all the students to grow and achieve their goals and will help in any way to do so.
Good environment and mostly good teaching staff. Very little to no bullying between students, but administration isn't very accessible.
