I loved Brandywine and, after graduating in 2009, I went on to graduate Magna Cum Laude from college.

My daughter, who is a hard worker and a senior this year, has achieved a lot at this school in 4 years. Most of the AP classes are excellent otherwise she would not have been able to score all 5's and one 4 on her AP exams. The teachers, including those who don't teach AP classes, are mostly very good. There are many students in her graduating class and in those ahead of her who have been accepted at excellent colleges including the Ivy Leagues. BHS has had 3 different principals in 4 years and has been through a lot of changes, but thanks to many dedicated staff, the school remains of high quality- I thank them. The future is looking brighter at BHS- one reason is that a larger proportion of high caliber students are likely attend BHS starting next year (due to a recent, more equitable policy in the district "School Choice" program.) I have 2 more children who will be attending BHS who may not track with the honors and AP classes. I am aware that their experience may be different and that we will have to be paying close attention to make sure they do not get "lost in the middle."
Our mission is to inspire and support families to champion their children's education - at
