I've been pleasantly surprised by Branham. My daughter just finished her Freshman year and loves the school, its activities, and the student population. The only issue was a first-year teacher we complained about that administrators are attempting to coach. This is the only teacher that my daughter has ever not liked. Hopefully her experience with this teacher will not dampen her interest in the topic. Branham was firm in keeping my daughter in the class when we requested to move her.

Our experience has been disheartening. There is serious grade inflation going on because of Standards Based grading where a student can retake tests. It might help the mediocre student but for those who need to buckle down (discipline) and study and get it right the first time, it is a disaster. They want to be "cutting edge" and be the "first" in the area to make this work....our kids are being used as experimental rats in a horribly flawed system. If I had known, I would have moved before subjecting my kids to this messed up system. Think of it..colleges don't let you retake tests! There are great teachers (Nguyen, Johannsen, Fernandez (an absolute gem) and then there are others who will remain nameless. The culture is stifling and there is a fair amount of mean spirited bullying going on and although I realize this happens everywhere this school's administration is more focused about getting every student to participate in AP classes so that they can take credit for a school with improved ratings, than fostering an environment of kindness and child focused. Kids need advice about their lifestyle before taking on a huge AP load. Much better AP & College counsel needed.

Branham is a friendly outgoing school. It has really been great for my son who is now graduating this summer. The new principal and assistant principal work great together and have really striven to push the school and academics forward. More AP classes being started this year. The teachers have been both good and bad, but nothing is perfect.

Must say our experience at Branham the last several years has been excellent. The change from 4 years ago has been remarkable and the teachers do a great job. I do question the administration the last year and a half. There is a huge push to put every student in at least one AP class. While this works for our kids and many others it is not helping students to put them in a position to fail. The administration has an agenda now and not sure it is always in the best interest of the school. There are political agendas that seem to be affecting decisions. Hopefully Branham can continue to excel and not decline with this new direction. Still would recommend this school but not as highly as before.

Branham high has excellent admin staff and new principal is very devoted. This school has gone through lots of reform for better in terms of remodeling and academic excellence. Counselling program is superb!

I am about to enter my junior year at Branham. It could be a lot better, but it could also be a lot worse. Many of the electronics need replacing, the buildings need remodeling (a bigger gym would be especially nice, considering our large student body - it's stifling during the MANY and UNNECESSARY rallies), and a more sincere effort could be made by the staff members (especially the counselors) to consider individual student's needs and concerns. Some teachers are much more qualified than others, and it definitely shows. However, while I am on this subject I feel the need to mention that the single best teacher I've ever encountered in my life instructs here. Compared to Leigh and a few others in the area - but especially the former - the student body is much more accepting and openly kind to others. The school is ethnically diverse and gay-friendly. Yes, there are the bullies and drama queens, but this happens everywhere. It is not a specific trait of Branham. Overall, this school isn't amazing academically or aesthetically. But if you're looking for a kind student body, helpful teachers, and opportunities to participate in community activities, you should consider Branham.

I have two kids at Branham. Both kids have had a wonderful experience. We have found the teachers and administrators to be kind caring and helpful. In regards to retaking tests, It's all about learning the material and getting It down. My kids have mastered their subjects.

I am concerned about hte use oft he Pickering/ EFFECTS style grading that waters down the grades. Studnets are allowed to take the same test over again multiple times. My student's Spanish teacher gives a C grade for knowing 20 words. The english teachers re- adminster the same tests for full credit. This is not typical at other schools in our area. our son is a high achiever, but I am afraid he is getting a sub-standard education compared to Leland, Leigh HS and Lynbrook , where the academics are much more challenging.

Branham really tries to keep kids engaged, keep the standard high and promote high academic excellence. We have been in the music department for 2 years and the kids are excelling! The instructor can be a bit challenging though. The test scores include the special ed. which not all high schools in the area have to do so the scores aren't really an indicator. The front office lady is mean and unhelpful... come on Branham... replace her!

this is not the school that put students first and looking how to help them to be successful and motivated. The stuff is superficial and will not look how to help student. The stuff have not professional attitude to help students in a very important live period.

This school has gotten better and better as the years go by. They have always had an excellent, extremely involved young staff, particularly in the History Department, but more recently in Math, English, Special Needs etc. In 2010 we got a new Athletic Director who has done wonders for the athletic department. He has helped triple the size of the Athletic Boosters, organized the coaches, streamlined processing of athletes and much more. He is extremely present and active on campus. In 2011 we got a new Activities Director who has started to make significant changes and boost school spirit and participation in events. He has an excellent relationship with teachers, parents and students. In 2012, just a month ago, Branham hired a new principal who has reignited the staff, been present at almost every function on campus, is enthused about changing Branham and is direct, confident and enthusiastic. This school continues to thrive, and test scores rise (although that isn't really a wonderful indicator of a healthy school) even with little money and support from the district and I continue to be impressed more and more each year.


Posted August 15, 2012

I've just begun going to this school, and my emotions about it are a bit mixed. The school offers great academics, but the teachers are the kind that are hard on grading and leave you a bit on your own. The campus and facilities are great though.


Posted August 1, 2012

I don't really enjoy the atmosphere of the school, but then that's my problem. I think that this place could use some remodeling, because I think the brick walls are pretty ugly, but the teachers are great and the people here are pretty nice


Posted May 18, 2012

Teachers and administration are appallingly closed-minded. Grading makes no sense whatsoever and puts A+ students at the same level as D- ones. Unfriendly atmosphere. Forces students to participate in school events for a grade. I would not recommend this school.

Hi out there! If your child is an 8th grader and your child is a musician...I would recommend Branham over Leigh in a HEART BEAT! The music directors at Branham have a great deal more experience than those at Leigh. The Leigh band director is a rookie and does not know how to teach music at all. Diane Wyant, the Branham director, has been teaching for almost 25 years and runs a tight ship! She is in fact THE director that built Leigh High School years ago and gave them the reputation as being an award winning program. So if you want your music student to be in the BEST hands...choose Branham! We did and we are excited about our child's future as a musician. Ms. Wyant is amazing and Ms. West the choir director really knows her stuff!

Branham High school is top notch!! If your child is a musician, the Royal Alliance Marching Band is a GREAT place for them to be. Diane Wyant, the director of bands, is a CLASS ACT!!!! She works hard to instill all the values WE as PARENTS know are necessary for OUR KIDS to SUCEED!!!! THE BAND is the HEART of this SCHOOL!!! TOP NOTCH!!!! A TRUE class ACT!!!!!

Branham High School is the diamond of the district. It has a small, private school feel with some VERY impressive programs. This school offers a music program that is taught by a veteran music teacher of 24 years...she is truly amazing. The symphonic band is the only one in the district that has received top ratings by the state music teachers association. The director here is the director that began Leigh's program more than a decade ago. The history department is second to none...the backgrounds on these teachers are amazing and incredibly impressive. Also...Branham offers a leadership program offered by Rich Alipaz that tops anything else in CUHSD...he is a Genius!!!!!

I have a student that attends Price Middle School. I am very excited also about my child attending Branham High School next year for the Marching Royal Alliance Band. I met Diane Wyant. She is very good teacher and my daughter very much like her. I look forward to attending Branham High School in the upcoming year.

I am currently a freshmen at Branham High School and I couldn't be happier with the education I am getting here here. I hang out with cream of the crop kids every day and have a sense the my teachers really care about me. I wouldn't have expected so much success in high school, my teachers and councilors really guided me to where I am now. This school has made it very easy for me to transition to high school.

I graduated Branham High School in 2008, and am so thankful i'm out. Aside from the one teacher I had that actually cared about her students in the four years I attented, the teachers could care less about you. Ms. Barger is an amazing teacher who truely cares for her students, if she didn't teach there I would rate this school with no stars. I definitely feel like the teachers are on their own power trip and love being able to tell students what to do, just because they can. Now that I am in college, I couldn't be happier.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California High School Exit Exam (CAHSEE) to test high school students' skills in English language arts and mathematics. The results for grade 10 students taking the test for the first time are displayed on GreatSchools profiles. The CAHSEE is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined by the state of California. Students must pass all parts of the CAHSEE in order to graduate from high school. If they do not pass it the first time, students have multiple opportunities to retake the test. The goal is for all students to pass both sections of the test.
