    "The principal Jennifer Gilray and Don French had to know someone in the Manatee School system to obtain their job. They are still in the stone ages in their evaluation of staff and the ability to make stable and good executive judgment decisions."

    "BRHS has the WORST admin staff I have ever delt with! They claim to be the BEST in Manatee County but that is far from the truth. I called my daughters guidance councelor regarding a teacher and you know what his response was? I'm sorry maam there is nothing I can do. This teacher who clearly was an older washed up teacher. His idea of teaching was using a work book. Never gave out notes and never used the math text book provided to the children. I ask myself over and over how these kids are expected to learn anything using this method. Because of their ignorance and lack of guidance my daughter suffered a low grade the first half of the school year. They are so worried about what the kids are wearing to school or wheather they have a cell phone taking pictures, sending text messages or walking on their grass! And this is only one of the sorry examples of this so called A rated school. Do yourself a favor and do your research before you send your child to this sorry excuse of a school. You will be sorry & dealing with pure ignorance because they don't care about the acedemics."

    "Braden River High School is possibly the worst school to attend. BRHS' policy on bullying is nothing like they claim it to be. Their method is pretty much telling the victim that it's their problem. My oldest daughter had both students and TEACHERS verbally harass her, one of which threw a marker at her face in the middle of class, and another teacher told her that "she wasn't worth teaching because she was so far behind and would be better off leaving" She was even followed home by students who threatened and said discriminating slurs to her; and when such things were reported; the school did nothing to solve the problem. When I called and asked for information about home-schooling or the LIFE program, the school refused to give me any of it, and would not answer my phone calls. My daughter eventually had to drop out of school, just to avoid the harassment from teachers and students that was going on unresolved. The school has such a problem giving out information for alternate schooling, but had no problem with getting rid of students completely. In my personal opinion, all of brhs' administration needs to be fired and replaced with people who know what theyre doing."

    "We moved to Florida in 2013 from a small Midwest town. We love this school it keeps patents informed on everything going on with its students. The classes and activities offers our kids everything they need to get a great education!"

    "I choiced both of my kids. Excellent school, excellent teachers, solid rules. You can tell the parents (unhappy) because they were unable to manipulate the system in child's favor. Another beautiful thing: rules are in place so the atmosphere is for learning. Dress code is district-not school-and requires students to dress for the business of learning. Dress like you are clubbing and you'll be sent home as to not be a distraction to those there to learn. Both of my kids succeeded. Both are doing well university. Thanks BRHS. HIGHLY recommend!"
