I am now a Senior and will be graduating this June. '08!!! I have to admit, I was sad to know that the school was small and that we lacked many things that other schools had, but as academics go, we do have some great teachers. There are some though who might not fit their job and responsability to help us, but whatever, I'm out and I have some good teachers this year. As safety goes, Bravo has a great staff that help keeps us all safe. Overall, Bravo is a great school for someone who wants to succeed in college. The AP courses help a lot. So a recommendation for incomming students and underclassmen, take as many AP courses as you can handle and also take courses in community colleges, it helps a lot, and makes you more confident to succeed in the future. Do not waste time.
I am at student currently attending Bravo High School I must emphasize the great advantage we all have with the small diverse community that it offers. I offers many extracurricular activities and the teachers really do push the students to a degree where they have to care and have to learn to take advantage of each free minute they have in class. I have attennded regular public high schools and its nothing like Bravo, the students dont really care about school, they have no motivation and hardly care for their grades...Bravo is a great school and college is never out of the question. Its rare for a student to be pregnant or drop out.
I am currently a freshman attending F. Bravo Medical Magnet HS and I must say that it is by far the best school that I have ever attended. The academics are rigorous yet exciting. The teachers encourage us students and stimulate our intellectual growth in a fun and proactive environmnt. Because of Bravo I am gradually becoming a goal-oriented, intelligent, and culturally aware individual.
Bravo is a awesome High School there are so many types of memories that can be form by going there! The location is also wonderful! Children must attend Bravo!
Although it may be better than your regular home school, Bravo is the most boring, pathetic school I've ever been in. There's no fun at all; the faculty tries too hard to make us 'academical achievers'. They're pushing us too far, and we do get them the high test scores, and still, the school properties are cheap, and there are not a lot of classes to pick from classes. It may be safe, but this school is boring as looking at a stick all day!
Bravo, it truly an excellent school, the environment encourages you to do your best. The teachers really do care about each student. There are also many AP's and honor classes available to you.
I am attending Bravo high school and I have to admit I didint like it at the begining, but now I learned to appreciate it . Even tough we dont have a field and the school is really small the teachers are great( most), and they try to keep us safe.
I thought Bravo will be a good but it isn't.In my opinion I think they should have more academic class and extracurricular classes instead of vocational schools. Most students don't even go to a good UC. IF a student wants to become a doctor they have to to college. But Bravo doesn't help students go to college academically but help them jet a job early with no good salary. They should have honors math and Euro History. My opinion will change if it is like Marshall or Temple City High.
Well, since 5th grade I wanted to attend this school. When they called me and told me that I got accepted and I was extremely excited and glad. The sports aren't that great and the school just wants to keep us 'safe', but what is going to happen when we come out into the real world? The school has helped us, but not as much as I thought it would. Although I have to admit, it is way better than my home school.
Its an amazing school. The campus is mesmerizing. The students are smart and the teachers are wonderful.
This is a great 'academic' school. Few sports related activities are available, however proximity to LA County USC Medical Center provides a plethora of volunteer opportunities. The area is not great but the school itself is very safe. The teachers are stellar and the curriculum very challenging. Plenty of medical and research related programs exist and the focus is on encouraging students to enter the medical field.
Best academic programs in school. This school is one of the best high schools in the lausd district. Best teachers
THis is a great school. My son went here for 4 years and he graduated. He continued on to UC Santa Cruz. I feel that they thoroughly prepared him.
Each child is encouraged to do their personal best without being labeled as the smart or dumb kids. The teachers are highly skilled and work hard to bring out the best in each child. The principal is kind and knows each child by name. She is a great example of a leader and I will miss seeing her everyday as my daughter graduates this year. Thank you ANLC for bringing out the best in my children and giving them the encouragement and confidence they need to go out into the world! '
this school interacts with classes that give students the option of receiving a carrer in medicine, such as volunteer work in the hospital, and also by taking nursing classes to become a nurse.
I am currently enrolled at Bravo, and i have first hand advantage of seeing the 'real' Bravo. Bravo, in a nutshell, is a great school! The teachers are perfectly qualified for each of the subjects taught there. Like in any other high school, there are 'good' and 'bad' teachers, but the ratio of the 'good' teachers outweights the 'bad' here at Bravo. The amount of students enrolled at Bravo, is small compared to Wilson or Roosevelt, but by the school being relatively small, the teachers can work with each student--one on one. The amount of education your child could be exposed to, by enrolling to Bravo, is tremendous, but it all depends on the willingness of the child to learn and persevere, you cannot just blame the teachers or the staff. Also, Here at Bravo, there are many cultural differences, between students, which can help a child learn more about others.
Bravo is one of the best school's in Los Angeles, I went there from 1995-1999. I graduated with a great satisfaction. My teachers always did their best to do their job, and tried to teach us the knowledge they had. It is a shame that Bravo is so small, but I guess it was a good thing from keeping us distracted with more kids than the normal school out there. I think the school should expand just a bit more to allow more kids to go there, but the architecture of the building is gorgeous. Although Bravo lacks in a football team the students still have great physical activities. The student clubs are well organized, the staff is very nice, and practical. It is a shame when an old staff member or teacher leaves, but it's still a great school. I loved my time at Bravo its a wonderful school!
I think that Bravo is a very good school but the teachers are not being just to the students. Bravo is a very good school all the things that they teach you come in handy most of the time. Students dont understand that they are in a really good school.
