Brashier Middle College Charter High School Reviews

Brashier Middle College provides what I think is most important in a school: a great environment for learning. The class size is small, so meeting everybody is feasible, but not so small that it feels limited. The school gives you ample opportunity to succeed, and the administration want you to succeed well. As the saying goes: Hard work pays off!
The main thing I would say is don't overestimate the value of dual enrollment. Many colleges don't accept dual enrollment as college credit, and some classes you take at the community college could turn out to be useless. Make sure you research what college classes will be useful for you, and you'll be fine.

So far, I've had a mediocre experience at BMC. The school isn't completely terrible, but it isn't good.. Maybe it's just me. The academic aspect is overrated. It's worth attending if you're zoned for a lower-quality public school, but if you're in the zone for a "good" GCSD school like MHS/Mann/Riverside you're wasting your time coming here. There's little diversity - two-thirds of students fit the same background: white, upper-middle-class, megachurch-attending, preppy, and academically above-average (but not exceptional). Based on most of the students' backgrounds, the school should be performing better than it is now. School spirit is nonexistent compared to other schools. The good points I'll give to the school is that the food is good (albeit repetitive), the building is nice and clean, physical bullying is almost non-existent (verbal bullying not so much), and safety is high. The worst things are lack of school spirit, clubs and sports, and diversity.
Brashier Middle College was an overall excellent school to attend. There were many policies set in place that valued and insured student success. First of all, the lowest passing grade at this school is an 80, which means that to pass a student must get at least a B in their classes. To assist students in reaching these high expectations, they offer many programs to aid the typical academics. Retesting is available in every high school class where a student makes below an 80 on a test. This gives the student more time to master the material before taking the test again. However, before a student can retest, they must go to an after school session called Academic Assistance. This is scheduled for one hour a week after school where a student can get extra help from the teacher with the course material and prepare for retesting. Aside from this there is peer tutoring and many other things that further assists students in their academic journey.
