Brandywine School District Reviews
As of May 2020, I will have attended schools within the Brandywine School District for 13 years. My experience within the district has had its ups and downs like any other school district but now that I'm looking back on the entire experience I can say I truly received an incredible education. Every school I attended had a tremendous staff that raised me to become the student I am today. I couldn't have asked for a better education!
What I liked about my time in Brandywine School District is the large populous of fellow students. Every class I knew there would be at least one friend of mine. Also, the large student body allowed me to have many choices when picking my desired classes. Now, my least favorite aspects of the Brandywine School District are the rules instituted to control students. This negatively affects those who actually want to learn. One rule limits the use of the bathroom so that we cannot go during the first 15 minutes and the last 15 minutes of each class. This is just one example that goes to great lengths to diminish a basic human right at the expense of good students who want to learn without the admin’s explanation of their policies.
Overall the Brandywine School District offers a lot of clubs, athletics, absolutely amazing music program, and many classes to choose from. However, not all teachers care about their students success. From my experience, if I ask a question one or two of my teachers will not answer. These teachers are meant to be payed for teaching and encouraging students, but it seems to me that they rely on the students to teach themselves. Speaking from a counselors aide point of view, I can tell you half of the kids getting into fights are only let off with a slap on the wrist. The rest of the hardworking students must deal with these children who obviously do not want an education.
