Brandywine is such an amazing school district to have your children go through. Everyone is so close and it feels like we are all one big pack, all sticking up for one another and fighting back when need be. Brandywine is not an extremely difficult school, so the switch from high school to college may be a bit difficult, but everyone has the potential to do their best. There is a lot of teachers who are amazing at their jobs, making sure that they are there to help any student in need. Only a few teachers seem like they don't want to be there, so they don't try as hard to pass failing students. Overall, Brandywine is one big family, with ups and downs like any functional family, or dysfunctional one.

During my time at Brandywine one of the biggest struggles was watching the teachers attempt to keep the rowdier group of kids under control so that they could continue with the lesson for the day. That was a struggle to watch, however when the teachers eventually got control of the class they were able to teach their subjects without much difficulty, They might of needed to go into more detail but they made sure that their students understood the concepts that they were teaching for that day. For that I was grateful especially because it would of made class much for difficult for students who couldn't get the concept down right away. In other words the teachers never gave up on their students.
Brandywine is a very small school which means very little room for opportunity. Classes are very basic and teach you the very bare minimum. There are good and bad teachers out there, but the algebra teachers do not do their best. There is no room to expand your mind at Brandywine. You have your basic math, English, and sciences. The good thing about Brandywine is that it is a small community so everyone knows everyone. Some of the administration do care about you and want to see you succeed.
