As a former teacher working with Brazosport High School, I applaud the amazing Science, Math, and Language Department for being amazing. I feel that the children in this area desperately need every bit of leadership they can find. That being said, there truly is a lack of interest from the student body in anything related to academics and I feel that most of the students are getting pushed through the system. Neighboring school districts are much harder on academics and expect far more from their student as community leaders. I am all for setting a standard that can be attained, but going about it by assessing more and more students as "special needs" and dismissing terrible student conduct as permissible is inexcusable. Some great teachers, new principals and district leadership, misguided community.


Posted October 7, 2009

Brazosport High School is an oustanding high school. The faculty and staff provide endless support and innovation in education. There seems to be constant revision and improvement to teaching strategies and tools to further student success. All agree every child can and will learn and accomplish anything, no matter socio-economic background, ethnicity or disability. This viewpoint is truely shared among all educators and administrators here. We have a very diverse and proud community. I am exactly where I want to be as a secondary teacher. I am at home at Brazosport High School. It is home for everybody.
