Throughout my 12 years in the Brandywine School District, each school I have attended (Mount Pleasant Elementary School, Claymont Elementary School, Talley Middle School, and Mount Pleasant High School) has prepared me for the next level. I have always felt supported and secure as I learned and grew academically. The school district has many different clubs, activities, and programs to help students excel in all they do.

During my experience with Brandywine school district it has been one of the best experiences in my life. Before I attended a mount pleasant high school in the Brandywine school district I attended a school in Chester pa, and I didn't really like it, but once I moved to Delaware my whole school experience changed for the better I became to love school. I would wake up every Moring excited for school, when I was going through depression and was giving up on everything as whole some of my teachers lifted me up and made me get out of the dark stage of my life, I felt loved and safe. I was surprised that I can feel all this love from my very own teacher, she made me a better writer and reader, Brandywine school district makes learning fun and they care about our future more then we do.
The overall district is great! Diverse and great teachers. However, I wish funds and recognition were split evenly between all the schools. Some schools get more funding and praise than others who do and need the same thing.
