Bremen Community High School District No. 228 Reviews

From the numbers of canned food and thousands of dollars raised as a school, Bremen is the most generous student body of the District. Also the kindness and diverse school, with the support for the Dreamers club on Cinco de Mayo, to the numbers of members from the GSA (Gay-Straight Alliance). Just by walking into the doors of Bremen, anyone could feel the pride of everyone in the building; with the words WE HAVE PRIDE!

The District is often overlooked by many other school districts and the students within those districts as a "slum" or a district where no matter which of the four schools you enter, the future resides in retail, fast-food, or similar job professions. I can guarantee to all those over lookers they are all wrong. BHSD 228 prepares you for the future; the teachers succeed in what they do, so much that many students have entered college after PASSING AP exams, and entering as a sophomore. The administration ensures saftey for all as well, so no worries about dangers entering the school. The only worry the students like I have is paying attention to the teacher's instruction during lessons; they know the way up in the tree of life, and are preparing us every day to ensure we climb to the highest branch.
Bremen high school is overall a good school in promoting diversity and embracing differences. But, the security guards at this school do NOT do their job properly and I have witnessed this firsthand. I do not feel safe at this school, and security in high schools is very important in this day and age. The teachers are very friendly and help as much as they can, and the school offers a variety of classes from culinary to engineering, to basics like geometry and physics. The school also offers language classes such as Spanish and French, which helps students to become bilingual. The many clubs and activities they have are very interesting and can appeal to many different people. The bathrooms on the other hand are not well kept and the water pressure in the sinks is horrible. Food is pretty decent, and everyone agrees the cookies are the best. A little overpriced, especially for cafeteria food, but it gives an option if you forget your lunch.
