This school has an amazing teaching staff, fantastic curriculum and course offerings for my kids (IB and arts), and is really helping prepare my kids well for graduation and college (AVID program and the entire staff will go out of its way to help whenever you have any concerns. The building feels respectful, safe, and like a fun place to learn. Also, the access to computers and other technology is excellent, and really makes a difference for my kids.
This is a great school. Enthusiastic staff, terrific principal and superintendent. We moved to the neighborhood so that our son could attend BC schools and we continue to be pleased with our decision. BCHS has a variety of programs to meet the needs of a diverse student population.
I just wanted to said my daughter came from the Osseo district school , which she was another number there. In BC she is been great her grades are better. [It has] been awasome.
There have been a lot of changes in this small school district! The high school got a new principal who is actually respected by the students and parents alike; the 7th-9th grade staff is undergoing training to become an IB Middle School; the behavior specialists actually do their job and take care of problems that come up among students; and I feel I can talk to the teachers and work with them to help my child make goals and learn how to achieve them. The motto here is: 'Expect the Best'. As long as parents, students, and educators are willing to work together as a team, the 'best' results will be achieved. The key is to work together, and keep the lines of communication open. Don't be afraid to speak up! Get involved!
Well, if there's one thing I know, that would be that i would not have like any other school better! The diversity is great! If i would have went anywhere else, it would have been so much harder to be myself. Even though this year( 2006) there was a bit of and issue with the principal,it's not because of him. The students were only thinking like kids in a box. Though there are problems with the kids, most of them are just misunderstood. Give them a chance! Go Centaurs!
Brooklyn Center schools are a great place for kids to attend. I am a parent of 4, 3 of which have graduated there. I am also a former student from the 70's. This district has a small town feel with teachers and faculty that really care and give their personal best. The classes are small enough (just over 100) that you know everyone. The schools celebrate diversity and have strong student leadership. The new Superintendant 2006-07 is a wonderful new addition. The music programs are strong and well attended. Athletics are open to all with good coaches that are supportive and committed. We believe the current faculty are positive good role models that are always there to listen and challenge the kids. We appreciate all they do. Give the school a look. You'll be glad you did. Negative comments: More parents need to be involved.
I graduated in 1991. Since that time, BCHS has lower test scores, a lower graduation percentage and a horrible sports program. I have a niece who currently attends BC and has told me they now have full-time security guards at the school. The faculty turnover has been amazing, which tells me these teachers don't want to teach at that school anymore. Administration has alot of work to do with this school to get back that reputation it once had.
My three sons went to BCHS and I have mixed feelings about the school. All three boys say they did not receive a good basic education but didnt know that until they got to college. Our the test scores are well below expected. The administration is well paid and can't seem to deliver qauality education and the score reflect that. Our scores are well below other schools and our excuse is the number of kids who move in and out of the districtis large. The district does not seem to be very creative. On the other hand it is a very safe school. Cameras, locked doors, police protection make it safe. The new principal will make a difference I hope.
My father went to BCHS and I went to BCHS. It was a great school then and it remains a great school. They are carefull in chosing who they hire to be thier teachers. The teachers at BCHS care about teaching and helping thier students learn. I didn't graduate at BCHS becuse we moved but, I will always consider this MY school.
Brooklyn center high school is a great school to enroll your kids to.
I'm not a parent but I am a student that is currently attending Brooklyn Center High School. BCHS has a great student body and a welcoming environment. This school has shown me a variety of diversity that I don't normally see around other communities. It's a great place!
I am not a parent, but a past student of the class of 2002. I have always felt that Brooklyn Center has provided a safe environment and a close community of people that I have grown to love. Relationships are valued between both students and staff. It is easy to be exposed to different cultures and diversity. My six years at Brooklyn Center were wonderful.
