    "The capital campaign for the athletic complex in no way impacts teacher salary increases. Using funds raised through charitable contributions for salaries is not permissible nor a fiscally sound practice. BDCHS prides itself on retaining effective, caring educators by offering competitive salaries and a positive work environment. We are committed to excellence in educational practices from instructional implementation to policy. We are proud of our partnerships with local businesses and organizations that enable us to provide unique, engaging learning opportunities for all students. We hope that all members of our school community support our educational program and practices. Respectfully, it appears you may have misconceptions that are potentially rooted in frustrations. BDCHS is happy to address your concerns directly and clarify any misunderstandings and counter false accusations posted in the public forum. We invite you to contact the school directly to discuss your concerns. We hope that you have found this information helpful in clearing up misconceptions that may be the result of frustrations or misunderstandings of the lottery procedure as outlined in FL 1002.33."

    "The problem I have with this school is its lottery process. When a third of the available open seats for 9th grade and a few spaces in concurrent grades are automatically given to Board Members, Teachers, and staff children the odds are particularly unfair. Charter schools are supposed to be non-selective, except when they are not. Charter schools receive public tax dollars and at times private donations. The seats at Brooks are given to this selective group I m assuming to retain a quality workforce at the school. Why is my public money going to helping this charter school retain its workforce? Instead of building a new stadium, why not give your teachers an increase in salary? If I had a choice, I would want my public dollars going towards a lottery system that is fair to all applicants. Shame on you Brooks."

    "Expectation: Fully participating and focused students Reality: Most students are honestly not enjoying the experience. It is noticeable that some students are in fact unfocused and problematic. Expectation: Caring and nice students Reality: If you are not "cool" or appreciated you quickly are outcast into independence with little to no friends. And it's not just me, many people are so lost they have no social group(which BDCHS boasts of not having). Expectation: Caring staff that will help your child achieve excellency and work with them one on one. Reality: "Caring staff" means after school tutoring that is always jam packed with kids. Which in the long run is a even more harsh than the average learning environment. Tutoring will not fix your grade but bring you anxiety and frustration without any extra credit. Many teachers are extremely and unnecessarily strict and should apply for military education rather than teaching "college prep". This the "no late work policy" combined with the limited extra credit makes any flaw expansively noticeable. Honestly you are better off going to a public high school and taking advanced or AP courses ."

    "My son has just finished 9th grade. I was skeptical about the school at the beginning(coming from private schools) ect... But I am pleased to say, that Brooks has exceeded my expectations. This is literally a private school w/out the tuition. The academics are challenging, the behavior system is disciplined and respectful, and the teachers and students have fun in the process. I couldn't ask for a better high school!!!!!!"

    "My daughter hated reading when she started at Brooks, today she purchased her third novel to read in the past few weeks with her own money! She also received a 4 on her reading FCAT, the teachers are awesome and we both love the school!"
