    Brimm is the top school in Camden. No other school will prepare you for college and help you with what you really need and want like Brimm. I highly recommend you try to get your child in for 9th grade entry . Its a hard process but you can do it. I really love how Brimm is set up.

    I'm an alumni from Brimm I graduated in 2001 and going to this school was the best thing that I could have done. I am now an alumni of Stockton College in Pomona NJ and although I did not partake in the medical field Brimm helped me realize that that career was not what I really wanted to do. I just hope that Brimm continues to give to the students because I can be a testament of those who need it. And show the people that something positive does come from Camden. Lourdes Solis

    Brimm is a very high pace and prestigious high school. This one of the best schools in New Jersey. Brimm is considered a magnet school that focuses on the math and science department. This school takes advantage of the opportunities available for students. In 2003 Brimm recieved about 40 million dollars in college tuition money for the graduating class. This would be the best opportunity for children that want to get ready for the Medical field. And even if not the medical field Brimm will give any child the confidence and intellegence for any career choice.
