I attended Birch Run Schools from middle school through high school. I was active in extracurricular activities and sports and enjoyed participating. I will agree that students who participate are more popular, but thats true no matter what school you attend. I felt no more or less prepared for college at Western Michigan University than any other freshman there. I plan to send my children to BR schools.
i think we have a good school we have many classes we can choose from also unlike most schools we have labs that we can not worry about blowing the school up :) i think we could improve the lunch though but what student wouldnt say that?! :)
I graduated from Birch Run High School and went on to attend Michigan Technological University. I feel like I was very well prepared for University. I had a great time and the school offered plenty of oppourtunities to further my education beyond textbook learning.
Five stars, students are safe and the academics are the center of the school educators philosophy. Some staff changes that will really help learing
Great school - some don't get their way and may not like that We have always been treated well and the staff / principal are very involved in the school.
I have worked at Birch Run High School for the last four years and have seen a great decline in student participation ever since the new principal came to power. Our budget is one of the worst funded that I have ever seen and the food selection appears to have come from a third world country!!! These kids might as well go to Millington. Thank you for taking time to listen to me describe the best features of our schools.
I'm a student at the school, and I personally think it is one of the worst places to be. The teachers do not care about the students or the students education. I have a teacher who, honestly, gives us an assignment maybe once every couple weeks. I'm a good student. I'm at school to further my education. I'm going to college, but with the education I've recieved from going to Birch Run schools all my life, I feel that I'm not prepared for college at all.
The principal is making improvements at the high school, but with so many poor quality teachers...how long is it going to take? As my child suffers through with a teacher that is not even an adequate person, let alone a teacher, and she effects my child's education and daily qualilty of life at the school. Until a handful or so poor teachers are corrected or eliminated, life is still a struggle at BRHS.
I have 2 children in Birch Run schools and wish I could move to get them out of there. The staff has been nothing but horrible and the administration is WORSE!
I feel as though I am not respected as much because I dont do sports.
My two boys goes to Birch Run and I graduated from BR also. I am very pleased with the community and the schools. It is all what you make of your education. If you are unhappy with the school system, then you need to get more involved to help change the current situation.
I am a parent of a student currently attending BRHS. I enjoy the new principal but the teachers show little care for the students. The students are told not to do somthing and if they do it all they get is a 'don't do it again,son'
The teachers lack involvement with the students. Many important things have been cut in the stead of more popular programs. The students that disrespect the administration are only disrespecting them because the administrators fail to respect any student that needs help or does not participate in any sports activities.
