    I currently attend Brethren High School and the excellent teaching staff is what makes this school special. They use personal connections to make learning easy and fun. The best part of the school is how friendly and accepting everyone is. No one will be judged at this school.

    I graduated in the 2004 from this school. The teaching staff and the principle are first class. The principle will go out of his way to greet the students and the staff there will go out of their way to help a student in need. They teach in a way that student will have fun but learn at the same time. Back in my day they had school spirit to spare and they allowed the student to have fun to degree. I remember six teachers right off the bat Armstuz Zimmerman Jura Isbe and Nasson. Armstuz and Zimmerman are teaches that would capture any student's attention. Jura is a person who likes to joke with the students and so is Isble. Nasson is in her own class of teaching she pretty much will help the student with any kind of a problem. And Mr. Bee is the best Principle ever! Goo BHS!

    When I was attending BHS I had a good time there. They have some really great Teachers. Some even help you when you need it and ask for it. I had some good times there. Made some life-long friends. My senior yr though I wish I had attended every day. But in the end BHS is a very good school.

    I am a graduate of Brethren High School and I just wanted to say that I never regret attending BHS. The school spirit was awesome the teacher and student relationship was great and I will never forget my principal. Brethren is a place where you get to know everyone and even now when I go home from college... I can walk into my old high school and still be approached by teachers asking how college is. BHS is a great school with great faculty and great opportunities. Go Bobcats!

    Currently I'm a Junior at Brethren High class of '06. I love my school! It is amazingly well-rounded academics sports after-school events clubs and of course we have awesome school spirit. Parent involvement is incredible and there are infinite opportunities to participate! The teachers love to teach hands down. Sports are huge and everyone is encouraged to participate. However grades come before sports no question from the faculty. Everyone is very friendly. Just a great place to go!
