Brookland-Cayce Highschool is an old school with plenty of history and reputation. The surrounding area is filled with hundreds and thousands of parents, grandparents, great grandparents and even great great grandparents who have attended and graduated from the almost 90 year old school. Brookland Cayce attendants have many clubs that they can participate in, and many choices in electives and arts. The Marching Band has the second most national Championships of any band in South Carolina, a very successful football team in the past 3 seasons, brand new Basketball Arena that College Basketball teams such as Duke have already used to practice in, and renovations everywhere including a new Theater, CATE building, and a newly opened innovation center that offers everything from firefighting and welding to culinary and cosmetology. Brookland Cayce has a diverse population, and just over 1000 students. Overall a great school.

I would like to see the attitude towards school spirit change. Many students feel as if it's lame to participate and want to make the school a better place. Once participation increases, the overall atmosphere of the high-school will change for the better by becoming a positive, welcoming space.
Brookland - Cayce High is a great school, but it does have some pros and cons. My experience there has been decent there so far. They have wonderful, skilled teachers there who pushes you to soar beyond your limit. They also have plenty of out-of-school activities for students , activities like pep rallies, powder-puff games, pageants, dance-a-thons etc. They have a good athletic teams and a good athletic team. Brookland-Cayce also needs some help on some things. I believe that the school focus more on athletics than academics. I also believe that BC needs a stricter discipline code and stop giving students some slack. They also need improvement on security and safety of the school. Lastly, BC really needs to stop overlooking the arts (Theater, Orchestra, Chorus, Band etc.) and start including them in more. Overall, Brookland-Cayce is a decent, easy-going school.
