This school is definitely not one I would recommend to have your child go to. The staff isn't very cooperative and I personally do not agree with the rules they have there. It seems as though the more rules they make, the worse the kids get. I also agree that Brunswick just tries to look good for the state and has no intentions of actually helping the students who really need the help. They definitely favor the kids who are on sports teams or in some type of club. The teachers don't really give any effort into helping the kids who are struggling and instead just adore the "perfect" students. There rarely is ever any punishment for the kids who actually break the rules. Bullying is a huge problem and nothing is ever done about it. You'd think after everything that's happened over the last couple years, they'd take those things into consideration. All they do is punish both kids and make the victim feel even more vulnerable. Or nothing is done at all. The counselors aren't helpful either. They never see you to talk to you and when they do, they never give any advice. My experience here has been horrible and I think homeschooling is a better option.

I graduated from here back in May and absolutely loved my 4 years here. There are a ton of extracurricular activities and sports' teams to get involved with. Not to mention the excellent staff and teachers. Of course there's going to be some teachers and other staff members that you don't like that much, but that's with every school. I think the best teacher by far is Mr. Maichrye. He teaches chemistry and he is excellent at what he does. You don't come across a lot of guys like him very often. He is a tremendous person to talk to and get to know better. He tells stories about his life often and likes to go off topic. The classes offered are also great. I think there are 12 AP courses and also several honors classes. The elective classes offered are second to none. If you get involved, you'll enjoy your time here. I met many great people and made tons of friends. The security here is top notch. They installed an advanced security system a couple of years ago and I always feel safe when I'm in there. They also adopted a new drill for an active threat in the building and we practiced it a couple of times and the teachers were trained in it.

Very clicky, if your child is not on a sports team or involved in band,marching band they are treated as second class citizens! They can be bullied and when brought to the administrations attention they always find a way to punish the child that is being bullied and not the ones who are the bullies as they are more than likely on one of the sports teams, these students can do anything they want and are never punished, or only get a verbal reprimand. This needs to stop! All students should be treated the same as non sports, non club affiliated student. We all have the choice to treat each other with respect no matter if you are in a school activity or just someone who just goes to school to learn!

In the 13 years since I moved into the area, I have seen Brunswick HS aggresively improve accademically and athletically.

There are some very good teachers at this school, who want the best for their students and put a lot of time into achieving that. I am not sure if Mrs. Boucher is still around but she along with Mrs. Swartz are excellent english teachers. Mr. Dickson is also an outstanding teacher for the AP government class, after this class you will have a far better understanding of the government and be able to have a very intelligent conversation of politics. Mr. Maichyre is also a top notch Chemistry teacher and possibly the best teacher at this school, could not be a better fit for a high school classroom than this teacher

I think brunswick doesnt strive for better educated students, they only want to look good infront of state.

Whether your child is onto music, theater, foreign language studies or sports, Brunswick High School offers many extracurricular activities and clubs for the motivated students who want to get the most out of their high school years. It's also located on the same campus as the fantastic public library and a state-of-the-art recreation center. As with any school, it's up to the individual student to decide how to hard they want to work to be successful.

I don't personally think this high school is as good as it has potential to be. The academic programs are ok but only a few teachers offer the whole learning package- Hands on work for people who need to do something to 'get' it, visual things for the people who learn best by sight, discussions for people who learn best by hearing.. etc. The music programs could be better as well. There was hardly any people in my choir that responded to my director appropriately. It was a bad experience because I was punished along with the people who didnt do their part. Parents didnt care enough to let the levy pass. Now our students have to pay to play- hundreds of dollars. Thats why I cant do any sports this year. Maybe its not their fault and it's just ohio's. Either way, the high school experience suffers because of it.

Being a student at Brunswick High, going on my third year, i feel it is an o.k. school. The academic programs are good, but the previous school i attented, i felt more challeneged. Teachers seem to be more into the whole 'book' thing, rather than hands on experience. As A student, I believe it is easier to grasp the concept if you can physically experience it. The music program is amazing. I have been a member of choir since the 6th grade, and coming to brunswick, I feel it has been the best choir I have yet to participate in . Unfortunately, the High School choir director moved to New York this past summer, but we are fortunate enough to receive an excellent replacement. I believe that parent involvement withing the school is very high. Being a member of the extra-cirrecular activities i saw that personally.

While Brunswick may have been seen as a good school before, now it definitely has a problem. The people of the city have denied the school's levy and now almost all extracurriculars are pay to play. There are excellent theatre, band, and sports programs, but participation in these will drastically drop now. Beside this, many teachers are indifferent, and even honors or AP courses are sub-par. My daughter feels as though she is being cheated out of an education and the school is not preparing her for college. For students with big goals, this school will be rough to accomodate. Most regular level classes are done with worksheets and textbooks with almsot no teacher input. There is zero security at BHS. The new principal, Mr. Mayell, has only made the school better since he's come here, but it definitely has its problems.

Brunswick High School has a well rounded academic program that meets the needs of the students and prepares them for higher education and training. Students have available a wide variety of extra curricular acitivities that provide many growth andleadership opportunites. They have excellent music and athletis departments. The counselling department needs to be more involved with the students is helping them narrow and determine areas of interest for advanced studies. They also need to help those that request it help in finding scholarships and grants for college. When needing advice they don't take the needed time. The staff is excellent and give the students more advice than the counselors at times. Over all a great educaitonal experience for students.

I have seen one graduate and one now a senior, all 4 years at Brunswick High School. The majority of the teachers are personable and many make themselves available for students after normal school hours. The academics seem above par and the extraciricular activities make a very good mix for students to grow and learn and move on to the next step.

Brunswick High School is a good school but, the safety and discipline are very poor in the school. I feel Brunswick High needs to have camera's and also more hall montiors, and also they need to be searched before entering the building. The programs are excellent, the teachers are awesome at Brunswick High, and so are the principal. A lot of the kids are so involved in sports and after school activites which is great but, a lot of kids still need to be watched closely.

The teachers at this school are fairly good. The amount of extracurricular acitivities for the students is amazing. However, I find that the principal fails to come to many of the sporting events. I find this sort of behavior unreasonable, unsupportive, and unrespectful. Hopefully this behavior will change.

Along with academics, I feel school events are an important part of school and how the students act. The principal and teachers are visable at school events at home and away. If students misbehave at football games, they are disaplined. The students got 'too roudy' one exciting game, the next game that was even more exciting, I could see the kids controlling themselves. I find our students [are] better 'controlled' at these events then many of the other schools. The principal makes the effort to attend at home and away events. As a parent I feel that is a special touch from the principal and that the students can feel that their event is supported by the principal and the school. The principal holds monthly meetings with the parents, it's unfortunate that not many parents attend.
