You want a real review? I went here and graduated in 2008. The athletic options are severely poor, the academics are a joke. Most, if not all, of the teachers have favorites and show it. Also, if you are well known within the staff, you'll probably get away with anything. Literally. Small town, Small school. And it is sad now, looking for a location to live with good education and athletic options for my two kids, and this isnt even close to being on my list.

Bronson High school has really been in a rebiulding process over the past few years, just this year the has recieveed a new principle. He has already met with the student government and has great plans for the school, and more importantly the student body. The schools sole goal is to give the students the education needed. All of the teachers there have this in mind, I dont belive i have sincerly met any teacher that dosnt car for their students. In the past couple of years we have had two teacher of the years for levy county come from bronson, and that says alot. Overall Bronson High school is a great school, and i would encourage parents to consider it when looking for a place for thier child. ....sighned student of Bronson

i used to go to this school and i got hurt quite a bit i got bullied and the staff is too busy talking about it but if you're on a sports team you were fine but if you were "athletically challenged" you had no chance. I've only found one teacher (Spanish) that truly cared about whether i learned anything and furthermore cared that i didn't get beat or tortured by other students there is no better teacher in the world.

I think Bronson is a amazing school the disapline is better and academics are to. Bronson was A few pionts away from an A school... Better than what most levy county school can say. I think the new school has really helped out with better academics and when they have subs for the teacher they are trained and actually teach instaed of sitting around 'babysitting'....

I am a parent of two children that attend this school and do not recommend ever sending your kids there. They are two sided. They will punish a good student for something stupid instead of talking to the child. Parents and kids are told different things. Most of the teachers are dealing with their own personal lives telling the kids about it. POOR SCHOOL OVERALL

Went to this school. Not much of a good school. The administration has no idea at all. They favorite and punish some students and not others. I dont want my kids to attend this school


Posted December 27, 2008

I have 2 kids in BMHS and I really like everything about it. For the most part (with the exception of a few), the teachers are great and care about our children.

that school is so bad it doesnt deserve a rating. when i went to school there, there were always problems between students and faculty. The faculty think of the students as walking paychecks rather than students. thats why i moved. i just dont think the school will get any better as long as the current staff is still working there.

im a student at bronson middle high and i really dont care much for it because the staff is always rude and dont care what you have to say. and the students are always getting by with way to much inside the class rooms. so i think we could do so much better if the students got there minds straight and stop acting like bad kids and the staff actually cared more and took time to explain things to us better........

Me and My husband were students of not only Bronson Elem. But also Bronson High. Our children attended Bronson for 4 years and we are now home schooling we are very upset on how bad the schools here have gotten. I would not dream of sending my children there.

I am also an alumni and and am very disappointed on how this school has become. I expected with a brand new school built for this town that attitudes and pride would change at BMS/BHS. I was wrong, terribly wrong. Teachers are just as irresponsible as the students. They feel as if they have to 'be cool' instead of doing their jobs. Students do as they please as teachers do nothing. There is no respect from the students nor faculty. Bronson is known for their basketball team and that is that. Definatly not known for achieving the highest education students could/should receive. Someone needs to take back our school. Start from scratch. Hire a real security team and clamp down instead of make friends Mr Beckham. You are there to help these kids, do it.

This school is going down hill fast, the children are running the school, no set discipline, no administration follow up. I took my child out, very concerned with his safety. Feel school has gotten to big for 3 Adminstrators, certianly not enough Chiefs for all these Indians....Also felt staff had very low low attitudes.

I think that the academic programs are not more hands on for students to learn a little easier for everyone, I this school has pretty good extracurricular activities, But as for the level of parent involvement, I can think of different ways to answer that question.

I'm an alumni of this great school. If I still lived in the area I'd make sure my kids went there too.

This school has turned from almost horrible to extremely good. Now offering advance courses to students, such as dual-enrollmente, that help them expand their goals in life. Also, the sports program if amazing. Offering football, track, cross country, baseball, softball, volleyball, and of course what Bronson High is most famous for, Bronson Basketball. This is probably one of the better schools in the district.

About the tests


Florida uses School Grades to measure the overall performance of a school each year on the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT). Each school is assigned a letter grade (A-F) based on three criteria: the overall performance on the FCAT, the percentage of eligible students who took the test, and whether or not students made progress in reading and math. The School Grades are calculated by adding points earned from each of the performance criteria listed above.
