Great school. Love the teachers and good curriculum. Looking forward to another year with my kids there.

Bruton has a faculty/staff with an unsurpassed level of committment to helping students reach their potential. Unfortunately, there has been a lack of both strong leadership from the top and parental support from the bottom.

I am presently a sophmore but I no longer attend Bruton High School. I moved out to Colorado and would willing give my left and right arms to go back and be with my fellow Panthers. I really loved Bruton. Comparing Bruton to my present school there is a lot of differences. 500 to 1800+ students was a great change. My new school has given each student their own laptop. Even with all the technology I still want to go back. Bruton, being a smaller school, gives every student a chance to stand out and I could put a name to almost every face in the school. We had maybe three fights over the school year and yet at this bigger school we've had several drug, alcohol, and abuse reports and there have been three days that hasn't had a fight. I miss and love Bruton. I highly recommend it.Go Panthers

Well i'll be a senior next year and my experience at bruton so far has been wonderful. there is maybe one fight the whole year and it's never a serious fight. The athletic program is great we have had several good people leave here with athletic scholarships. Bruton is a wonderful school. We have great teachers who actually care about the students and who gives alot of one on one time with students after school.The music program is also wonderful the band just received an superior rating at this years festival with straight 1's . I'm really enjoying my school.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Virginia used the Standards of Learning (SOL) End-of-Course tests to assess students in reading, writing, math, science and history/social science subjects at the end of each course, regardless of the student's grade level. The SOL End-of-Course tests are standards-based, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Virginia. High school students must pass at least six SOL End-of-Course tests to graduate. The goal is for all students to pass the tests.
