Brindlee Mountain High does lack dicipline and other good qualities the other older schools have, but the way we all see it is BMHS is just getting started. It may take years but were going somewhere. We have many good qualities that were not known for, and its unfair that the other schools focus on our bad children and our negatives instead of the amazing students and great qualities.

My child loves this school, most people in our area only hear about the bad in our school to cover up there own, this school is treated completley unfair and is know for rednecks, poor kids, and 'the pigs' as there called, but its much more than that, those are the weak points, our school has some amazing scholars. There are plenty of wealthy children in our school system as well. And you cant just focus on those bad kids, there are good ones who get no credit what so ever but they are still in this school bc its where theyve grown up. While our football team who does need some practice arent doing well, everyone thinks of that instead of oh say our basketball teams or scholars bowel or even track. Brindlee Mountain High does not get the respect it deserves. Its an amazing school. :]
