My experience at Brooklyn Center Secondary School was awesome on the first day because everyone greeted to me and helped me find my classes. My teachers are also hilarious jokes that involves with the topic we are learning about. They also have a Get Ready room for students who has question about college, scholarship, help with school work, and many more. I love how this awesome school is really diverse which makes me want to learn more about other cultures and learn their beautiful language. Some teachers would also have snacks for students if they are hungry. My advisory teacher would do hot chocolate every Monday and she would talk about our grades and tell us how to improve it. Overall, I love this school and I'm glad that I am graduating from Brooklyn Center Secondary School with all of my amazing friends.

I grew up in brooklyn center went from earle brown elementary school to the highschool and my time there was amazing , the teachers were amazing they push all their students to always do their best and never give up. They talk a lot about college with their students and that's something not a lot of schools do. They interact with their students in a way that they know will catch their students attention. The teachers there are so passionate about what they do and I couldn't be anymore thankful for what some of them taught me. There is one teacher who stood out to me the most and who will always warm my heart because she always was on me about doing good in school and always turning things in and always keeping me involved. very blessed to say that I experienced such a beautiful time in that school and even though I will not be graduating from brooklyn center I will forever be proud to claim centaur nation!!
What I like about Brooklyn Center is some of the teacher really drive you to find your passion. A major thing they can work on is helping students deal with bullying. I have been at Brooklyn Center from 6-12th grade and I have experienced bullying almost every year and every time I would go to a staff member not much was done so, thats something I feel the school needs to work on.
