Brockton High School Reviews

I was pretty active academically and involved in dual sports. Though I was busy and engaged with a full scholastic active schedule, I was able to graduate with a 3.5 GPA; support and assistance from counselors ...and supporting staff was at times lacking. This in part is due to the large (1200) senior class enrollment! Getting lost in the shuffle and heavy demand of such a highly populated environment was at times overwhelming. However, the overall take away is Brockton High school offers a wide variety of sports, drama classes, extra curricular activities and academic clubs to accent any portfolio!
I'm proud to be a Brockton High Alumn Class of 2016.

Brockton High is a school that helps students expand their horizons (if they're willing) and rediscover themselves without the pressure of feeling judged. It definitely helps that it is the largest school in Massachusetts with a total of about 4,300 students, so it has no choice but to also be one of the most diverse schools!
Brockton High School was a great school! They had so many programs and activities for students and what I love most is how diverse the school is. One major benefit that I got while attending Brockton High School was being a part of the Summer of Work and Learning program. The school found jobs during the summer for students. For junior and senior year at Brockton High School, I worked at the same place for two summers straight and senior year of high school the company hired me for good which I currently still work for!
