It is very creative,easy,easy to learn.I like the way the highly classified professional teachers teach us in this school. My school could hae the teachers do a little strict rules in class and the students don't disrespect teachers a lot.

Our daughter is about to complete her 6th grade year at Brogden, and she has had a wonderful year. The teachers and staff are amazing and completely dedicated to creating a safe environment and a smooth transition from Elementary School!

I have an eighth grader in this school. I find most of my child's teachers to be very good to excellent. The overall culture and leadership of the school is hierarchical, non-responsive, and lacking in imagination. Police presence is strong and thus there is a lot of order in the hallways. There are no structured opportunities for parents to meet teachers. There are very few after school activities. Most of the "electives" (which include music and languages) are scheduled within the same block of time. Physical and health education are poorly taught.

Brogden Middle School has a diverse student population and challenging urban environment. In my opinion, this award should go to a school like Brogden that needs funds to be the best it can be, instead of some well-funded school that already has high ratings and doesn't need the money.

Brogden goes to unbelievable lengths to make the transition from elementary to middle school smooth for sixth graders. I was very worried about the initial adjustment, but between keeping the 6th graders seperate and regular progress reports to keep parents in the loop, it has been smooth sailing so far. My son loves going to school in the morning. What could be better?

I have had two children attend Brogden. The faculty is the most dedicated group of teachers I have seen. The administration is fantastic, it is a well run school. The student population is diverse and friendly. All children learn and are pushed to reach their potential at this school. We love Brogden!

My brother and I attended Brogden in the last Sixties/early Seventies. It was a great school then. My son attended Brogden from 2004-2007. The Principal was awesome and the teachers were great. The school has a lot of school spirit and feels like a big family. The teachers and staff are very devoted and really care about their students and the school.

Brogden is a school full of excellent teachers with amazing support from parents. The parents work together in the classroom and with the PTA to bring about great progress, programs, supplies, and events to help the students learn and grow in a positive environment. Way to go Brogden! Thank you for helping kids achieve excellence!

Brogden is a very good school with very educated teachers. Their moto is we don't give you the 'A' you have to earn it. If your child listens and follow directions I can guarentee you and your child an 'A'!
