    Not pleased with this school at this point. The Dean's MAIN focus is on the football program. Anything else is secondary.

    I am a student at Lake Brantley and I love it. This school IS giving students academic support when they ask a teacher. They prepare the students for real life situations and they offer many classes you wont see in other high schools. GO CLASS OF 2014

    This school is highly overrated. Students are not receiving the quality education they are entitled to. The problem is and what few parents there know is the majority of teachers teaching their children do Not hold certification in the subjects (core academic) they teach. Parents should be aware of this fact and request proof the teacher teaching their child holds certification in the subject their teaching. I was stunned when I checked and found out that not one of my daughter's teachers held subject certified in her core academic classes! Don't be fooled like I was. My daughter did not receive a quality education while attending Lake Brantley we felt bamboozled!

    No Academic Support - I'm very disappointed upon research it is rated as an exceptional school cross the board - this must mean we only cater to exceptional students and those not in there A+ are lost in the cracks there is no assistance for a student having difficulty with classes - there is no tutoring support at all (by teachers) If your child is not a A+ then your child is a statistic.

    I'm not at all pleased with the academic support at this school. My daughter who used to love school now hates it and wants to drop out. They have a "To Be Kind" program that is exclusive to "snobby" kids who aren't very kind. The teachers don't care if your child needs extra support in a class and won't make amendments to help your child. They don't care. The school is supposed to prepare chldren for after high school. They aren't doing that and it only seems to support those whom they think are deserving. I'm extremely disappointed and can understand why FLVS is a viable option with schools like this.

    My son graduated from Lake Brantley in 2008. Although I think the school is pretty good I feel it could definitely use some extra education dollars to improve things like math English science and the arts. I know it isn't the schools fault that we have the FCATs but I MUST say those tests hindered my child's learning experience. He did not learn NEARLY as much as I did and I graduated in 1979! The teachers are forced to teach for the FCAT instead of for college and life. My son was an A-B student but is seriously under-prepared for college and the outside world...those FCATs have ruined his formative years as far as school is concerned!

    I went to lake brantley high school for 9th grade and i loved it... We had 4 classes and everyone was so friendly.. I loved my classes and all the people.. Everyone was very helpful and nice to me.. I am a senior right now and i go to piper high school and everyday i wish i didnt have to move so that i could be at the one school i loved to go to every single day.

    I love this school like there is no tomarrow! The academics here allow us to have a wide variety to choose from and also to attain scholarships. Making friends here is easy because you just have to find people you connect with. The Band here is especially excellent and not just because im in it. So it's safe to say what school I would want my children to go to later on in life. )

    I currently attend Lake Brantley and from what I've encountered it is a very stuck-up rich school. Cliques are everywhere and very mean and hurtful to anyone not like them. I used to think our reputation as a snobby little rich school were false until i realized it myself. Don't get me wrong the academics are great the student body as a whole is what makes this school very cold and unwelcoming.

    Lake Brantley is a great school overall its just the little things such as teachers and many of the students that just keep it from the excellent standards. I think that for the most part they have a good basis of education . They have a wide variety of sports which lets you find the one that you fit in the most. I do disagree however that most of the sports have to revolve around football. No doubt football is a great sport but that doesn't mean that the other sports have to have less equipment and not as nice practice field as the football team does. Again it is a good school and I would pick it over most of the other schools in the area.

    As a freshmen here at Lake Brantley High School I didn't have to go through the normal pressures that most freshmen face. However i'ts a very stuck-up school only caring for middle-class students. I mean it's okay but I'd gladly move somewehere else.

    One of the best High Schools around Central Florida

    I am extremely pleased with Lake Brantley High School. I was orginally zoned for Lyman High School but decided to move upon a comparison between the two schools curriculum guide. Brantley offers an abundance of academic oppurtunities partly because of modified block scheduleing. This was proved to me as I realized I can be finished with 5 years of foreign language in about 3 years counting AP foreign language. Also I have never really enjoyed math and Ive made mediocre grades throughout my academic career before coming to Brantley but upon the gift of a brillant math teacher I have done comparably better. She takes two hours with me after school to help free of charge. All my educators are sincerely dedicated to their professions. Although controversey surrounding the Lyman-Brantley rezoning abounds I strongly beleive I made the right choice in coming to Brantley the proof is sheerly in the curriculm

    Highly overated High School They have some good AP and honors classes but the school seems more focused on sports. We have had 3 children attend LBHS. This school has a very poor reputation at providing special education. Look at the State of Florida Dept of Education website for more specicifics but LBHS doesn't seem to be meeting their own objectives as a school.

    I wanted my son to go to the best so we moved into the Lake Brantley School District and thought we were getting the best.. Over the 2 years my son spent at Brantley we were not satisfied. I think the great reputation is overrated. The school is full of cliques that do not encourage camaraderie . He played in the band for 6 years prior to coming to Brantley and loved it. After one year in the band at Brantley and he quit and has not picked up his instrument again due to the band directors methods. The school does have several AP classes that can be taken for college credit. There is a focus on either band or sports for extracurricular activities. My other son is at Seminole HS loving everything about the IB Program. Sorry we didn't change schools.

    As a student attending this school I can say that it is not all that it's cracked up to be. It is highly overrated. The student groups are very cliqish. We don't mingle with other groups besides our own. We spend far too much time practicing for the F-CAT then actually learning. Teachers seem to pay more attention to what you are doing wrong (i.e dresscode cell phone misuse) then actually trying to teach you. Bottom line it's not the best school out there anymore.

    I dont like this school. we spend all of our money on the sports team but not enough on the book and things necessary for learning.

    Lake Brantley is a safe High School. There are several teachers that need to find another profession. They do not have any support for those students that need extra help in a particular subject. They only activities they have is football and dance shows and mediocre choir performances.

    The school has excellent academics and student involvement. It is one of the stars of Seminole School District. Lake Brantley has performed so well.
