My experience with Brennan high school is boring and disappointing. When I go into that school some of the teachers are just not caring enough and just need to retire. Many of the students are very unhappy. I get bullied almost every single day I'M GLAD THAT I AM IN ISOLATION! I've struggled with depression and suicidal thoughts my entire life ever since I was 5, but this school just turned on a switch to take away all my dopamine! I can go on and complain about the students treating the janitors with disrespect, and the antagonizing lunches that are so overpriced! This school makes me want to transfer to other schools but I can't because the other schools are 1 hour away!

I liked how easy the classes were. I did not take regular courses. I took A.P (not recommended), Dual Credit, and On Ramps classes, yet am graduating with a 3.9 GPA. This is because of their policy that allows work to be submitted late. The policy and the staff (as long as you are respectful to them) are grade savers! This is a double edged sword, though. The extra allowance could make you complacent, or even more of a slacker. You can either flourish or deteriorate in this school.
Brennan high school is a great school. They offer a lot of opportunities to pursue your interest and provide a lot of higher level learning opportunities, such as AP level classes, dual credit, and on-ramps(a class where you are also enrolled in UT Austin). They provide excellent fine art classes as well as many life skills classes, such as cooking, money managing, construction, health, future life decision preparation, and many more. The administration is geared towards providing a safe learning environment and are always ahead of any issues that may persist. Even throughout this Corona time, we had easily available resource opportunities and maintained learning throughout it all. The courses are inclusive and provide ample support to any struggling student. I am able to maintain all A's even with taking college level classes. Brennan is an overall good school and provides safe, forward learning for any kid.
