Brevard Public Schools Reviews

The student experience in a school can often widely differ from the public opinion of what goes on in the school. This can be both good and bad for the student. The worst things to happen in the district that were not one-off occurrences include: school accountants that stole money, individual cases of racism, fights between students, and wealth disparity between beach-side schools and poorer non-beach-side ones. If you can get past these things (and I assure you no school district can be spotless) then you'll see the many great parts of Brevard: multiple programs for high-achieving athletics and academics, multiple clubs dedicated to helping the community, the direct contact between schools and local businesses that will hire students after college and internships (especially our space coast engineering firms), and many opportunities for fun.
Review Brevard Public Schools
The Brevard Public School District was something I was directly involved with from kindergarten to sixth grade. While I am now a homeschooled student, I am still involved with many of the people in the public school system through dual-enrolling. The district has many strong areas. The education is advanced, and it prepares you very well for college with its encouragement of taking AP and college classes. Our schools are also very diverse and open to all kinds of people. There hasn’t been a time where I haven’t felt accepted because of the way I am. The worst part about this district is the administration. Concerns aren’t carried out and funding is low for many programs. This has greatly affected the reputation of after-school programs since these programs feel outdated. While my district has its strength, it would be much better if they just listened to the students complaints about how subjects and activities are divided up in the school.
Brevard Public Schools in my experience are excellent. The academics are excellent. By going to Rockledge High School and joining the Cambridge Program I was able to take rigorous classes which prepared me for college work. Cambridge classes themselves gave college credit and so as a junior and senior in high school I gained the experience I needed to study well in college. The teachers were excellent. The teachers were truly passionate about helping the students succeed. I remember countless times when I had to come before or after school to ask my Spanish teach to help me learn the subject better. She always did it with enthusiasm and happiness. So many teachers were like that. The schools offer many clubs and activities for all kinds of students. I myself joined many clubs. I was so fortunate to be apart of a school system that encourages students to take part in and lead clubs and activities.
