Pitiful!! I am from Atlanta GA and my husband is from Tampa, FL. I knew the ideaology out here would be out dated, but this is beyond anything I would have ever imagined! I have been told by a science teacher that the system couldn't afford books, the Microsoft 2010 class has more students than computers, so they share and about 3/4 of them work. Bullying is rampid. new Principal every yr, my son is a 504 student, he is a Sophmore, they just realized he is in 504. What lil money is spent on them isn't on thier safety, being every time there is an out of town event, the buses break down. There is NO parent teacher communication, my son has been on 25 field trips or sporting events, not one time have they come in on time, nor have they called the parents to inform them of thier tardiness. Last yr the ROTC Captain lost a child, all us parents waited 4 hrs in the parking lot, before one of the teens texted back. When he did, he said they were told 20-25 minutes till they pulled in, another hr and a half later he texted and said they stopped to eat. There is a reason land is/was so cheap here, no one that isn't from this community would dare regress to this time warp.

Brantley County High School is a wonderful school! My husband and I both graduated there ('72 and '74) and are parents of 4 children who are BCHS alumnni ('93, '96, '99 and '03), one of whom has recently returned to teach at BCHS. The staff there is caring and concerned about the students on every level. Although BC is not an affluent system, its resources are utilized to the best possible extent so that students will gain maximum benefit. My family and I are proud to be Heron alumni!

This school is absolutely terrible, the teachers are horrible, kids learn next to nothing, and yet administration expects every student to have exceptional scores on standardized test. There are more students than the school can hold, and not enough teachers for the classes needed. MAJOR lack of discipline, the staff cares more about kids kissing and having cell phones than they do bullying . The new principal is the worse of it, instead of encouraging students and helping them succeed he's kicking them out left and right.

I personally am appalled by the lack of effort put forth at this school. I have never had an English class where we had no Vocabulary books. There is nothing done at this school to help prepare you to take your SAT s. But, I am mostly disappointed by the lack of encouragement. This school stresses graduation. The students are never encouraged to set high goals and attend college. The teachers waste large amounts of time, dragging out short assignments, and rarely actually teaching.

I have been teaching at BCHS for two years, and I love teaching at this school!! I'm not a Brantley County native, but I love the students and the community. This school has an atmosphere of learning, love, and support that I believe is missing in most school systems today. It is a family.

I'm a graduate of the Class of 2003. When I attended school there, all of the teachers and staff members were very helpful. If I had a problem, I could go to any one of them and receive the help that I needed. None of the staff members there were ever rude or inconsiderate. I'm proud to call myself a graduate of Brantely County High. Even-though I am stationed here at Fort Benning, Ga., I still continue to cheer my hometown high school on to victory.

Our school has a great teaching staff and they are wonderful with the children. How ever other areas lack and need attention.

the teachers do not inforce all the rules that they should. the principal is doing a good job at her job. the teachers get a 90%. the parents do not have much to do with their children's teachers.

I think Brantley County High school is a wonderful school. My daughter is a senior this year. She has had some very good teachers. They take a lot of interest in the students on an individual basis. Also Dr hunter is a good superintendent. In most schools he would not even know the students but he does. I have known of him calling a student at home to check on a problem and to see if he could help. Brantley county is a great school. I am glad we moved here from Brunswick 5 years ago. I feel she has gotten a better education over here.

I have a child in this school also. She has had a new principal every year she's been there. She's a JR. this year and on the third principal. We have just learned that the current principal will be leaving this year, and she will have yet another new principal in Aug, 2004. I'll have to say the staff is great but the administration doesn't stay long?

This school is terrible! The teachers do not teach! They give assignments and spend the rest of the class time doing whatever they please. There are not enough text books to go around so the children cannot even bring some of their books home to do homework and study. I am moving from that county specifically to get my children out of that school and into one that can actually teach.
