  • Bronson Middle High School is the all around school; in my opinion. My children love the home-family feeling the school offers. We have many challenges, specifically with the new principal; but I think he'll get the hang of it...Just give the seniors SENIORITY! They've well earned it.

  • as a student i think this school is pathetic its all about how we look towards everyone then what we are there for(learning) most of the school staff could are less about the students unless you're one of there little cliques. if you're not, then they could care less about how you learn and most of them will tell you that. we have guidance but we cant ever get in to see her. it takes weeks and when you finally do get in they just give you the simplest answer to get you out of their office. then there is the administration. they are there for the students too right? wrong they say they are gonna handle the problems with the teachers. ya right, they say a lot but never see any action taking place and they say they will solve problems with students but there is always a fight on our campus. it's more about how the society is going to see us instead of teaching and safety like it should be. and i will never send my kids there and when someone asks me if they should go there i will say no because all Bronson middle high is, is one big joke

  • I graduated from BHS in 2000 when it was still in the old location on Eagle Dr. I have seen this school improve by leaps and bounds in the past nine years since I've graduated. Perhaps it's bad reputation is not due to poor administration or lack of good teachers. Perhaps it is due to it's location in the city of Bronson itself. I've always said that Bronson is not a good place for most kids to grow up in. It's a severely depressed and poor area without many job opportunities or hope. If you look at the city statistics the main job opportunity is construction unless you want to commute or move to one of the bigger surrounding cities like Chiefland or Gainesville. Also, when you have to go home to a rotting trailer with holes in the floor and trash in the yard, and your mom and dad can't help you with your homework because they're drunk, high, or too busy watching nascar, you sure aren't going to care much about your education or future. I sympathize with these kids because I used to one of them and have struggled in life due to my lack of interest in my education. My only advice to them is to strive to do the best you can so you can make something better out of yourselves and in turn improve our city. I know BHS has some very fine teachers because I vivdly remember several of them and the positive impact they made on my life, namely Mr. Powers, Mr. Dulaney, Mrs. Papadi, Ms. Sparks, and Mrs. Noble, all of which I believe are still teaching there. Give these hard working and awesome teachers the credit they deserve!

  • I went to this school my whole life and let me tell you, When Mr. Bishop was around it was a school. Now we just have the new admids who dont have a clue. Most of the teachers think of the students as pay checks and dont care. many of them will refuse to help a student who tries but maybe just doesnt get it. One will not go back over anything and would let a student fail before she repeated something twice. Students run the class rooms and those who care dont get or learn the material needed so they can make something of ourselves. The school seems to allow much misbehaving. It is know for its BOYS basketball team and nothing else. Ive watch some of them get out of trouble many times or pass a class they should have failed because they were on the team. They slide right through while other who deserve to pass struggle. Guidance cousilers are there to help the students and many of my friends would come to me and say "Well she/he told me to figure it out on my own. It wasnt there job to just give me the answer to college n scholarships." Kinda thought it was? The students [many] of them or animals and I worry about people I know going there. The admids and teachers have trouble keeping order or just teaching a lesson. I dont wish for my kids to attend the middle or high school.

  • i feel like they forgot the what school is all about, aswell as not teaching the students what is it needed to take the fcat and any other kind that will affect graduation and college. they are to worried about amounts and good rep. when they should understand they could get all that by helping and not ignoring. Now, i am not speaking about all the people the work there, just a couple aswell as the school board.....
