My experience at Propel Braddock Hills High School has not been like I planned. I thought we would have the greatest teachers and principles but yet we were faced with a bunch of replacements. What really made my school year the worst was the new PRIDE system they decided to grade students 25% of their behavior which really decreased a lot of the students GPA. In Propel BHHS there is not a variety of sports, we had ultimate Frisbee but that was it. The lunch there was disgusting and a majority of the students didn't eat there.

Very good faculty and staff, teachers are talented and engaged actively with students. Very diverse student body from urban community. Many interesting technical electives for multiple grade levels. Only disadvantages are a lack of sports programs, generic lunch food, and lackluster student clubs. Technology is incorporated very well into classes, with students able to keep up with their grades and assignments through the 'Skyward' LMS.
I've been at Propel since my freshman year and I think it is an exceptional educational institution. The teaching staff has been amazing for me and I feel like I have been academically challenged to enhance my skills. The only thing that holds me back from giving them a five star rating is the school lunches, which is far from ideal.
