In my four years of highschool at Brenham I have experienced many great things. The Staff in Brenham do a great job educating and making sure that us students get our work done. As an Ap student I have been taught very well in order to pass the rigorous Ap test in order to get college credit. The staff in the office really enforce security measures making the district a very safe place to be. Although, the lunch rotation is the same every week there are multiple lunch lines which offer many different lunch options to make sure students are not hungry and ready to learn.

The best part of this school district is the tight knit community the students have especially if they are part of an activity such as sports, band, student Counsil, etc...
The district is great! Brenham is a small towns so everyone knows everyone. Most of the teachers are friends with most of the parents. The amount of kids in each grade is around 400 and you know everyone in your grade by senior year. Also, the classes are smaller so lots of one on one time with the teachers.
