I spent all K-12 years at Brantley, so I can't compare it to experiences at other schools. However, Brantley prepared me well enough to ace the SAT and ACT, get numerous scholarships to a 4 year university, maintain 4.0 GPA in college, and earn a 6 figure salary 20 years later. That seems to be a pretty strong case in favor of the school, says a formerly poor student.

Before our oldest started school we researched the schools within Crenshaw County. We decided to move to the Brantley area. We were told the horror stories about the 'bats', about sports being the only priority and since we weren't from there we wouldn't 'fit in'. I'm proud to say we have been here 8 yrs, have 2 children at BHS, joined a wonderful church and are very happy in the town of Brantley. What initally drew us here was the community involvement. There are very few places left in America where the community and school are so intregal to one another. As for the fairness of the school I've never found that a problem. Actually I think BHS is one of the few schools where you as a parent can be directly involved. I'm very proud to be both a Brantley resident and a BHS parent.

I am a proud graduate of Brantley. My child is currently enrolled in Brantley, and I have 2 more on their way to becoming 'Bulldogs'. There are things at Brantley that could be improved, however, small schools are limited to what can be done with a small budget. Things are looking up in Brantley; new buildings, better programs, and more efficient educators. Brantley is a very diverse school, children find a 'Home' in Brantley. Brantley is very proud of their sports programs, and because of this, several under-privileged kids have received scholarships to major universities. If parents were involved in their child's education, they would realize that the school and staff consider the best interests of the kids at all times. At Brantley, they know my child's name, what she likes, and they make my baby feel at 'Home'. 'It's great to be a Brantley Bulldog!

My daughter came from Florida school, I have to say I am very disappointted in Brantley High School. It seems all they care about is sports, not education. The school is so far behind in Brantley , we had to put our daughter in advanced classes. Very poor school as far as learning.

My son attended this school for half a year. He was an A and B student before, during, and after he left that school. This school is all about sports and money. If you have little to no money you don't matter. And if your child doesn't play sports he or she doesn't matter, despite their grades. The teachers are snobs and treat children differnet on social levels. They treat their special needs children even worse. My sister was in 6th grade and couldn't tell time or count money and give change. They are not a great school, in fact they are not even close. My kids will never go back.

Brantley is the best school in Crenshaw County. We have the higher test scores than the other schools. Brantley may be the smallest in the county but it is one of the strongest academically and sports. We have the best principal in the south. He really cares about the kids and takes time to listen. He even still looks after them when the go to college. Brantley is the best!

Brantley School is the best school in Crenshaw County. BHS excels highly in academics, athletics, and leadership. That is the facts. BHS has better standardized test scores than any other school in Crenshaw County. The faculty and staff and BHS are truly 'one-of-a-kind'. BHS has proven that lack of money is not an excuse for poor academics. Brantley High School is known for it's 'Tradition of Excellence'. The Principal is one of the best in this state. If you don't believe me stop by and visit him. If you are looking for a great place to send your kids this is the place to send them. Believe me I know, I graduated from there and went there all of my life.
