Branson High School has been an amazing experience. All the teachers and administrators have been very helpful and any student in need knows that they can go to the staff. When things go on in the community the staff always responds and are some of the first people to help out. A family in the school recently lost everything in a house fire and the school helped them out and if people wanted to bring them donations, they made room to store things since the family had no room to put things. All of my teachers have all been very intentional with all their students and anytime I need anything the teachers are always there for me.

I attended Branson High all 4 years (freshman-senior). My experience was fairly positive. I am strong in my faith, they provided FCA and were accepting of bible studies on the property. I was very involved in choir and student counsel throughout high school. I appreciated the opportunities that Branson provides for students to exercise what they are interested in. Administration can be intimidating, but at Branson High, when I was there, admin were always more than willing and happy to help students in ways possible.
Unfortunately, I did not care for all my teachers. Some treated me with disrespect though I was eager to learn, this made it difficult to want to be involved and interested in that class. I suggest teacher evaluations - at the end of the year students can anonymously submit a short evaluation of the teachers giving positive and negative feedback for their future classes.
Wealthy school, good area, bad kids. Most of the kids at school are good but about 20% when I attended were consistently involved in drugs, crime and other nasty behavior. Many kids steal from other kids in the Branson school district.

One major con, if you were NOT at a 3.5 or above GPA, involved in many activities and were not an honors student, the school completely skips over you as a student when they ready seniors for college and scholarships. I asked my guidance counselor for assistance with applying for scholarships and other things and told me he couldn't help me because I was a student who couldn't achieve unreal expectations in high school while working full time and living on my own.

Other than the many cons there are many pros. Great teachers, many great programs and activities to participate in, modern up to date school, etc...
