Brandenburg Reviews

3 reviews
I have been living in Kentucky all of my life and although I live thirty minutes out from the city of Brandenburg, this is where I spend most of my time. I attended Stuart Pepper Middle School as a middle school student and am currently enrolled as a senior in Meade County High School which are both located in the city of Brandenburg. I have received a wonderful education at both of these schools and couldn't have asked for better educational opportunities. The only thing I would change about Brandenburg would be the lack of entertainment. There isn't much to do after you leave school or get your groceries.
Review Brandenburg
Brandenburg is a small and quiet community. It has nice parks, and schools. Brandenburg is a very safe community.
I lived in Brandenburg for most of my life and I would say that it's your average small town within Kentucky that has It's history with a river view and a good place to grow up as a kid. Most of my best memories are from this small town that gave me my besets friends and rise me to the man I am today.
