Very few AP science classes and no AP math classes, no computer science opportunities, no AP Music Theory, in general very little support for higher learning. If you're an average or below student, the school is good. If you are interested in higher learning, look elsewhere.

There were several reason why I enjoyed my high school experience at Bret Harte. I involved myself in numerous extra curricular activities such as FFA, Circle of Friends, and also Friday Night Lights. However, despite my amazing time within these clubs, the academic classes that this school offered were prestigious among other schools in the area. While the classes contain a lot of work, the teachers are very invested in their students and really care about the hands-on training and success of everyone who walks into their classroom. Overall, the experience was not perfect because like every school, there are some teachers who are below par. However, in a general observation, the environment and staff is very positive and I would repeat high school if I could.
Overall, my experience through Bret Harte was a very good one. The teachers were friendly and cooperative, the workload was not stressful, and the atmosphere just made it easy to relax. Sports and extracurricular activities were also very enjoyable.
