    "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!"

    "This is an awesome school. My daughter is a freshman there and I am very happy with the level and quality of instruction. There is 100% commitment from all faculty and staff to support the administration of the school. I can't imagine being at another high school."

    "Being a mom of four, Braden River is the WORST school any of my children have attended. My daughter has been mistreated and misguided. Being new to this school, she had no help or guidance from anyone. They assumed she knew everything, and never tried to help her understand all of the new things this district offers. She was treated as if she were invisible by administration, staff, and students. I don't understand how the last school district my family and i were apart of handled things so well and this one could not get any worse. Also I have not seen rules like these since my children were in elementary school. The dress code is obnoxious, my daughter is not even allowed to hug her boyfriend, and they can't even walk on the grass.. I am sorry but they seem a little crazy to me. I begged my daughter to transfer somewhere else but she was afraid to start all over again somewhere else since it was so hard the first time. She went from an A/Honor student, to not even wanting to be in any accelerated classes. This school has definitely changed her negatively. Even though they try claim that this school great, I believe it is sloppy, poorly put together, and overall a terrible school."

    "In my opinion, kids should not be allowed to write reviews about schools. By reading the two reviews below I have gathered that this school sets rules and sticks to them and also has bullies.... thank you for your in depth review kids. The third one down says it was written by a parent but was obviously written by a child. For someone who has a daughter that carries a 4.0 and is a member of the National Honor Society you seem to have a lot trouble spelling words and forming coherent sentences. Sorry for the rant but I'm actually on here to find the best school for my daughter not read spoiled little kids complain about school. For anyone actually interested, I've done a good amount of research about the schools in this area and BRHS and LRHS rank 1 and 2 in the district (based on actual facts not opinions). LRHS grades out a bit better but not by much."
