Brockton Public Schools Reviews

The only reason I liked Brockton high is because if you look hard enough there are a lot of opportunities. Other than that, teachers and students together did not create the best high school experience for me. Some teachers were really good when it came to teachers, but it was very uncommon to get more than one teacher as such. It seemed like they just wanted to make my like miserable because their lives were miserable. The case is the same for deans, assistant deans, floor teachers, and the principle. Everyone in the school is constantly miserable, unless you are a senior because you get to leave the jail set up as a school. You may read this and think I am just being a regular high school student, but when I say my high school experience was a struggle, I mean that. And teachers have not made my time any better.

An amazing school that focuses on expanding opportunities and real life experiences! Although a larger school, the faculty here develop close bonds with the student body and help to ensure each child feels like part of the family. This is definitely a great school given its resources and location.
I have been blessed to see the great teaching mechanisms of Brockton public schools. We all have our ways of learning that could be visual hands-on and etc and the schools I have went to are all equipped in all and these ways including others that we are not informed of. Personally, for me, I am a visual learner I like to learn with images. What I see I can visualize it and correlate it with the subject of the lesson. Many students have failed due to the teachings of a teacher because it is not understandable or difficult. Now I feel as if teachers have evolved in ways to make every students learning experience easy and fun.
