    Brandon public school, especially Brandon high school, have many opportunities that other schools in other areas lack such as a dual credit program with hinds community college. They have amazing teachers & coaches. Their extracurricular activities excell in categories and often earn kids scholarships based on that activity and academics! It has great schools, tasty and healthy places to eat, and is near to larger cities that have outlet malls and theaters for fun nights out! Brandon also has a nice park with a trail for hiking located right behind a library for a day of fun and healthy leisure! This park salsa has a basketball and tennis court at it and is located right by police station! If you ask me, all of these qualities make Brandon the perfect place to raise a family!
    Review Brandon
    I adore this community. Low crime rate, safe neighborhoods, thriving local businesses. Minutes to everything you need!
    Brandon, Mississippi is a wonderful, safe place to live and raise a family. The schools, law enforcement, library, restaurants, and shopping centers are all top notch. I was raised in a small community south of Brandon called Star. Once I graduated from high school, we moved to Brandon. As Americans, we have a lot of worries about our safety today. I know that by living in Brandon, my safety is a top priority, along with every other resident. I also know my child will get an excellent education by attending a school in Brandon, MS.
