Brooke Point High School is epic! The administrators introduced to us the best program structure that changed my daughter's learning experience while transitioning to the 9th grade! Due to military relocation we will depart school but will always support as my nieces and nephews will attend soon.

My daughter just graduated from this school. She had the most amazing teachers in her last year. ( I should share that I am a teacher in another county) My daughter is a "high flyer", but she often chooses to not take full advantage of learning opportunities. Communication from some teachers-way above average and other teachers- no communication. I know I can check online for her grades and not turned in work. He newest principal is fantastic!

My son will enter Brooke Point this coming Fall to begin his high school career. We went to orientation night for emerging students and I was impressed. The curriculum is very diverse and my son will be participating in the international bachelors program. This will help him focus and prepare for university. The additional programs are also very impressive. I was surprised by the enthusiasm of the staff and the student body. I am really looking forward to the coming school year, as is my son. I'm glad Stafford county continues to provide relevant scholastic programs that help prepare our kids for life beyond the home. Keep it up, Brooke Point and Stafford school system, you're doing great things and making a difference.

I am a current student (Class of 2014) at Brooke Point and I think the school overall is pretty good. There are many different types of classes and the school offers regular classes, honors classes, AP and IB classes for students. I think the teachers honestly have the best interest for the students but it's up to the students to step up and exceed expectations. There aren't too many fights at school because the school has a strict no-bullying policy and this includes cyber bullying. I only gave the school a 4 out of 5 because it still has a long way to go faculty and overall education wise but it's progressing very well in my opinion.

We have 2students in different grades in BPHS and wouldn't recommend it to anyone. Our opinion is that the education is average at best. Many of the teachers are not my ideal and a few, in my opinion, should not be allowed to teach.There are a few extraordinary teachers there but not many.There is a real sense of us vs. them at BPHS. It is my observation/opinion that when a teacher does something wrong, unprofessional or discriminatory the school and district Admins.will almost always take the side of the teacher over the child/parent. Parents of students in certain extra curricular teams/groups are afraid to complain because it may be taken out on the child in the form of not advancing them or not giving equitable play time for example. There is no real demand for student excellence as evidenced by the counselor who told our child "It's ok if your grades are poor, you can just go to a comm. college for2 yrs then go to a better college." Teachers/coaches are allowed &encouraged to play favorites among students. Parent input is frequently disregarded. Freq. fights among students,gang activity, teen pregnancy and lg. classes are problems. We would move if we could.

Brooke Point High School has excellent teachers and many hardworking and fun students. This school year, Brooke Point will be graduating its first International Baccalaureate Diploma candidates. The sports, academics and fine arts are among the best in the state.

I believe this high school has great preporatory classes. I felt prepared when I went to college after taking College Prep classes at BPHS. The teachers are knowledgeable, the staff is friendly, and the extracurricular activites are fantastic.

Really nothing special about Brooke Point. As a current attendee (Junior class of 2009) I find it lacking in extra curricular activities. Sure it has it's sports, but what about a better variety of clubs to suit everyone's needs
—Submitted by a student


Posted January 19, 2007

From a former student's perspective: the school has a decent academic program, but really isn't anything special. A lot of teachers leave for northern schools that pay more, and low funds for the county system result in teachers that are stretched too thin. Like any school, it has its phenomenal teachers and its terrible ones. It's not a bad school, but it's not great, either.

Brooke Point High School's motto 'as one' describes exactly the atmosphere that Brooke Point provides. Everybody at Brooke Point is a member of that family and the school decor has a very home-y feel to it. I wouldn't want my child to attend any other school in stafford county.

I truly love this school. The teachers actually called/emailed to inform me of my daughters progress. I am disappointed that redistricting is sending her to another school, but she was very happy with her year here.

My daughter had to begin attending BP in the middle of the year and was very nervous about this. The faculty and staff were wonderful to her and made her feel right at home. The students were very kind and helpful to her. After a long move, from Germany, Brooke Point turned out to be a great place to land.

Great school! The teachers are very supportive when it comes to parents and conferences. I think parents should get a little more involved especially when it comes to students and sports activities that their child excells in. The Extracurricular activities, i.e. varsity basketball team needs a little work when it comes to coaching. Students in their junior and senior year needs to have more of an opportunity to play in a sport that they excell in and that can have an impact on their future and not sit on the bench, especially if they aren't having academic or behavioral problems.
