The staff members are great. I feel very included with the teachers. The building itself, however, can be improved. The school bathrooms are not as clean as it should be. The academic is impressive. Help is there whenever a student needs it.
I've been a student of the Braintree Public Schools my entire school career, and I think it was a typical and satisfactory experience. The quality and dedication of teachers varies, but I'd like to think that the teachers who come up short are overshadowed by the ones who are passionate for their work. Resources, such as guidance counselors or teachers, do a lot to ensure preparedness for college from applying to attending in the fall. Stereotypically, food is the major shortcoming, but some more substantial things that could be improved are student involvement outside of school. Kids that are in sports or clubs are very passionate and enthusiastic, but so many kids don't want to get involved. It'd be awesome to see a greater sense of community in outside of class, though the schools have an amazing sense of community in school. The high school's esteemed motto is PRIDE: Partnership, Respect and Responsibility, Involvement, Diversity, and Educational Excellence.
