I love the fact that I go to a smaller high school, I feel more connected to my class because we only have about 200 students and I’ve been going to school with most of them since 9th grade. In my experience, I haven’t had a teacher that I absolutely couldn’t stand, or felt that they didn’t go beyond doing their job. Some teachers feel that it’s not their job to be a friend to their students, but I have about 3 teachers I’m really close with and their mentorship has really helped me over the years, especially now with all my seniors responsibilities and college things I need to figure out and get done. It’s really encouraging to know that the teachers care about your education and well being beyond the class room. Last year, Broome started a schedule change that made student lunch an hour long. Hour lunch is super beneficial to get extra work done and go to teachers classrooms for extra help and tutoring!

My time at Broome High School has been a wonderful experience. I have created close relationships with so many friends and teachers. The small environment has allowed for me to find my place in so many ways including being the Student Body President. I do believe that one thing that our school often lacks is spirit. It is frustrating for me as the Student Body President and a Varsity Cheerleader when people often don’t participate in activities despite how hard we try. However, overall, Broome provides a wonderful education with faculty and administrators who are interested in what students have to say. Broome has allowed for growth and experience.
The faculty & staff at Broome is unbelievably awesome! The teachers will go the extra mile just for there students. The environment in the class rooms and halls, are an environment every kid wants to be in. Without Broome High, and the joyful faculty and staff, I wouldn’t be were I am today in life.
