I have been going to Bremen City Schools since I was 9, and they are all fantastic schools, especially the high school. The teachers always go out of their way to make sure all students understand what is taught, and education always comes first. Also recently Bremen City a Schools was ranked #1 out of 180 school systems in the state, we truly are, "Excellence in a All We Do."

This school has good academics. It is not too over the top about sports, but does well. It is very hard for students that move in from other towns to assimilate into the "Bremenites". Odds are they will never be recognized for their grades or talents. Just like in life, it's who you know not what you know.

Bremen High School is an outstanding school. The students are well prepared to attend the college of their choice.

I am actually a graduate from BHS. Compared to my friends' educations, the education I received at BHS was outstanding.

I recently posted a review with 2 seniors at BHS and I notice other reviews written by students. My two seniors proudly claim their school. It is a wonderful feeling to hear students take pride in their school and to know that my family has been is a part of not only the school, but the community as well. This mark of excellence was created by the support of the parents, the hard work of the students and the even harder work & constant dedication of the Administration, faculty & staff. Go Big Blue!!!! Go Bremen !!!

My son is a second generation Bremen graduate. Our family is very unhappy with this school system, so much so, that we are sending the younger siblings to the county school system. My son is exceptionally intelligent; however, the teachers and the administration did very little to nurture this. The sports program is focused on the children of the so-called Bremen elite. Also, the lack of a bus system to keep the black children from attending shows the extreme racism that still flourishes in this tiny town.

I am a senior at BHS this year, and all of my friends from other schools still ask why my parents pay tuition to send me to Bremen every year. I couldn't see myself as a senior at any other school. The teachers, administrators, janitorial staff, lunchroom ladies, and students contribute to the near perfection of Bremen. We have so many clubs, athletics, and other extra- curricular activities to keep us entertained. Another highlight of a BHS student's life is football season. Each year the stadium is crowed with fans all wanting to see some Blue Devil Football action, and each year, the adoring fans leave stadium after stadium with pride in our eyes. Bremen students have so much pride and enthusiasm in our school that we can hold our heads up high and say, 'We are Bremen, the one and only.' Bremen is by far the best school in Gerogia.

I am currently a Junior at Bremen High, and I wouldn't move schools for anything! The principle has integrety and is an outstanding leader. The teachers all love teaching and go beyond the 'call of duty' on a daily basis. The name 'Bremen' instills intimidation on the field, mats, stage, courts, and courses. Bremen is like a big family... a Team. Education is a priority, and my schoolwork is often more advanced than that of friend's from surrounding schools. To sum it up, I LOVE BHS!

Bremen High School provides an excellent learning environment with prodigious leadership. Each teacher is sincerely concerned with your education and future. Bremen is on the smaller side offering more one on one opportunities. I am currently a senior at Bremen High and love it. Bremen is the closest you will come to a private school in the public realm. Bremen's teachers, students, ambition, and extracurricular activities make a perfect combination for a close to perfect school.

My children are third generation Bremen students. I do not worry about violence at all at Bremen. The kids can learn in a safe and more intimate atmosphere. Bremen's SAT scores are above the national average. Great school.
