Bret Harte Middle School Reviews

It’s not a bad public school. A lot of the teachers are hit or miss. You’ll probably only learn something if you get a good teacher. Otherwise, it’s pretty much a waste of an year where everyone fools around and nothing is taken seriously. Generally, students are alright but it might be hard to fit in if you don’t already know a lot of people. There’s quite a few clubs and activities to do and a lot of the electives are interesting.

Decent middle school. Fun for what it is, but not much else. Good environment that provides room to have fun sometimes (and to just be a middle school-er).
Bret Harte is not particularly well-rounded; however, the school is known within SJUSD for having especially distinguished academics. In addition, Bret Harte's speech and debate program in collaboration with Leland High School's nationally ranked team is very well organized.
