Brandenburg's principal is a jewel. She has made an unbelievable differce and keeps it a place where I know my children are well taken care of...more so than anyother school in the district.
My son is a Brandenburg 6th Grader who originally wanted to attend Jackson. Although he received an invitation to attend Jackson for 7th grade he loves it at Brandenburg so much that it's not even a consideration. My experience so far has been that the administrators, office staff and teachers are ALL trying very hard to provide the best educational experience possible. Good morals, ethics and hard work are encouraged rather than just suggested. I'm delighted that after six years of fair to poor teachers and administrators in elementary school, Brandenburg has restored my faith in GISD's ability to offer excellent education for my student.
I don't know....We left this school and went to another. I thought it was run too much like a prison camp. I think the principal has good intentions, but she wants hypnotic robots for students. The good kids have to suffer along with the bad even if they never do anything wrong. I know they have had crime and discipline problems in the past so maybe it's just a hard habit to break. Most of the teachers are great and do a good job. I think overall it boils down to what you want your kid to experience-prison or freedom.
Our daughter was also accepted to Austin Academy for 6th grade. After attending an elementary academy K-5, we decided she needed more creative environment. And that's what we have at Brandenburg. She is in all honors classes and is challenged. We are very impressed with the principle, office staff, and teachers!
I am thrilled with Brandenburg! Originally, my daughter was accepted at Austin, but was on the waiting list. Brandenburg is our neighborhood school and I did not want her going there because of reports over the past years. However, other schools we looked into were full, and we decided since Brandenburg was now a magnet school, she would be challenged (something we did not get from elementary school). Boy am I glad we were wrong. My daughter is in all honors classes and is being challenged. She is also in school-related extracurricular activities. Her personality has come out and is shining! She loves her teachers and has many friends there. We are definitely pleased with the school. We had a chance to let her go to Austin for the 2003-2004 school year and decided against it. We are extremely satisfied with what we have.
This is our second year at BMS and we could not be happier with out learning experience here. My child was on the 'waiting list' to attend Austin Academy coming into 6th grade and by 7th grade Austin was not even a consideration for us. The teachers are excellent and provide ample opportunity of tutoring if she is not understanding the subject. As in any school, parental involvement is key to being successful.
My son has been a part of the honors program at The Classical Center @ Brandenburg for two years now. In my opinion, Branderburg has challenged him and prepared him for high school. I feel the teachers have creative teaching methods and they truly care about educating the students.
I have had my son in the Classical Center @ Brandenburg for two years now! He loves the school and the teachers too. I think the teachers are great too. The only thing I would change or suggest would to let the children a little bit more freedom! But I would not put my child anywhere else.
The Classical Center at Brandenburg is providing my children great opportunities and preparing them for high school. Overall the teaching staff is great, I am very happy that my children were accepted to this school. I am impressed with the principal and her assistants.
Your school is not good you need a four story one you need to have a pool a geometry lab science lab and many more things! Because of this school I had to pull my kid out of it the teachers are below average they need to be above average!
