    "The staff is beat down. They can't advocate effectively for themselves nor their students. The teachers are gagged to talk to the parents and public by actions that can and have been taken by the administration and downtown. Like if you say anything that is not on the permission list, next year you get all students who are on grade level 1 without an assistant. This means they use the poor kids as cudgels against the teacher. She is overwellmed and can't be an effective techer because the principal loaded her down with students who do not follow instructions. Just because they are "highly rated" on a system that is suspect at the least is not a reason to send your child here."

    "Not a good school for special education. The staff did not meet my child's needs by teaching her at her level. My child was fragile emotionally but she was continually suspended for behavior she couldn't help. This school used a standard discipline code with no exceptions or understanding of the inner experience of my child. The adverse treatment sent her spiraling into severe depression. Worse, the administration and special ed. department blamed me and my child and took zero responsibility for their own harsh treatment. They didn't want me on campus. I do not fault the teachers with the exception of the special ed. dept. I'm in the process of writing an article and am using this school as an example with all names changed of course. The east Manatee schools have a good reputation for educating their more academically successful students. But I've heard abysmal reports of kids who don't fit that mold."

    "I'm a student at Braden River and it is an amazing school. The teachers really care about us and are really fun. We have rewards for good behavior and grades. They offer many extracurricular activities. Ofcourse there are occasional fight and such but that's only because you can't put almost 1,000 adolescents in one place and not expect conflict. I'm currently an 8th grader and my past two years have been the best school years of my life and this year is starting of to be the best ever. If u are considering letting your child enroll in this school don't listen to parents who don't experience what the students experience everyday at school. Listen to an actual students who says it the best school I have ever been to!"

    "This school is horrible. It is full of drugs and criminals and the school teachers have completly lost control of the students. Dont bother to try and talk to anyone about being unhappy with it either because they dont care."

    "My daughter is a 6th grader at this school.. I would rate this school average. Some teachers are very active with parent involvement and send emails daily updating homework and materials, while other teachers do not follow up, even after multiple emails and phone calls have been made. I do like the FOCUS website where you can view all of your childs homework and test scores, but multiple times grades have been entered wrong and I've had to follow up with teachers to get it fixed. Its disappointing that I have to babysit the teachers. I am happy with the strictness of rules and that they are inforced, but I am disappointed with the culture of the school. I hear regularly of fights happening at school, my daughter complains about the constant vulgar language and my daughter was also offered drugs at school. Luckily she is smart and communicates openly with me so we solve those problems at home, but its still scary to think about what happens when she is there. I am not naive to believe that middle schoolers do not deal with the above mentioned, but it just seems like it happens more than usual at this school."
