  • I am a graduate and had to take remedial math in college just to get in. The teachers are overpaid tax payer funded union workers with no accountability, but think they are entitled to their paychecks and benefits. They actually feel entitled to get paid the same when they retire as when they were working. That is the reason for the high property taxes. Don't expect reform; just move if you can sell you house and find work. Just telling the truth.

  • Brandywine is a horrible school. like the other person said... what is with the high taxes!?!? Berks county is pretty much like a trash can.

  • It's disgusting... I live in Brandywine Acres, less than 2 miles from the high school. The kids that ride a late evening bus on Walnut Drive think that is their personal trash can. Any night after the bus goes by (after 8:30 or later), one can find burger king bags, wrappers, soda cups, half eaten sandwiches, candy wrappers and any other kind of trash thrown on the ground and on the street. The kids are really taught good community relations and respect for other peoples' property. Makes me proud to live in one of the highest taxed school districts in Berks County! What a joke
