    Not a good school. Small filthy not funded awful teachers. Only few teachers are good in bravo but other than that no. My son who is in honors saids how unfair and bad the grading system is. There are no good sports and no field for the kids the play in how are the kids going to be healthy without a place to play in? The field is only about the size of a gym swimming pool that's how small it is. Especially dr.pace perez fetti and sepulveda are one of the worst teachers. I do not recommend this school.

    Dr. Pace 9th grade teacher. I think she is mentally sick / unstable. She don't know what she is taking to student. Dr.Pace might give her a U in cooperation. Please talk to her about her policies and her teaching habits. It will appreciated to observe what she is doing in her class.

    I am truly pleased with this school. The teachers are great overall (there are a few challenges-like at all schools.) They have a great parent Booster Club that raises money for scholarships. They are a close knit community school and my son has made some great friends along the way. Some things I would like changed More support for the Cross Country and Track teams Principal and Vice Principals listening and RESPONDING to parents (even when its an offer of help) meetings during hours that working parents can attend (late evening/after 5pm) ideally a gymnasium and football/baseball stadium to expand the sports program. Overall I am really enjoying having my son at Bravo.

    I HAVE NEVER SEEN TEACHERS THAT WERE AS DEVOTED TO EDUCATING MY DAUGHTER AS MYSELF. SMALL SCHOOL PACKING A LOT OF WHALLOP. HOW I WISH ALL TEACHERS WERE LIKE THE TEACHERS AT FRANCISCO BRAVO MEDICAL MAGNET HIGH SCHOOL!!!

  • (1 year ago)

    I am currently attending Bravo as a freshmen. I must let you know that Bravo is overcrowded but the teachers are great! Most students start taking Advanced Placement classes in sophomore year. However there are some freshmen who have AP Biology and Honors classes. A lot of freshmen have Honors classes there are a few who have only honors biology and no honors english. It is a fun experience at Bravo with new friends & old ones as well. There are many clubs! Such as Filipino club Paranormal Mentoring Hands and Paws Random Acts of Kindness One in Christ Club MD Stand Up for Cancer Knights Against Diabetes and much much more. Most teachers are friendly and the students are all unique in their own way. Lockers are randomly checked by the dean and there are random class searches. I have been checked twice in my locker and class. There are sport teams like Basketball (boys) & (girls) Soccer (girls) & (boys) Track Volleyball (girls) & (boys) and Softball for girls- Future Graduate of Class Of 2016 !

    i am an eight grader and i am thinking of becoming an doctor but also learning how to play drums most high schoolers say i should go to torres or wilson which one would be right for me. thx

    I attended Bravo from 2007 to 2011. It is a wonderful school with many opportunities to get involved with the local community as well as USC. Thanks to Bravo I am proud to say I will be attending the University of Pennsylvania this fall on a full Gates Millennium Scholarship. I was the excellent education and wonderful opportunities that Bravo afforded me that allowed me to win such a competitive scholarship. Bravo is a place for serious students with serious teachers who really want the best for their students. Please do go to Bravo if you are high motivated and have goals. It is not only for the medically oriented but for all who want a strong STEM education. Bravo is awesome!

    helpful teachers and workshops! a bit overcrowded(but it's due to budget). prepares students well for college.nice counselors. overall friendly environment.

    My daughter is a graduate of Bravo H.S. The academic curriculum along with the AP classes that were offered to her prepared her well for her current success at Occidental (she is now finishing up her Junior year). In my opinion this school is for those students who are serious about furthering their education and going onto college. Students who are motivated and disciplined and who work in partnerships with their teachers. If you are a student considering going to this school and you possess these attributes - you will succeed. Good luck!

    This school has done a lot better in the past. However I think that the actual learning experience however has gone down along with the economy. Don't get me wrong the teachers are great! but they can only do so much with sooooo many students. I have to agree with the other review the school is way too overcrowded and the amount of one on one time during class with the teacher is slim to none. So a lot of this learning must take place independently or outside of the classroom.

    There is no gangs no fighting just social kids having fun and learning

    It is a good academic school. It is a small school which took time to get used to and is very diverse. So it is a good cultural experience. If you would like to join a football team this is not the school for you and transportation is a hasle sometimes especially afterschool but it is a good school.

    it is a cool school with many advances in any subject there is music foreign language AVID and many things more. I really recommend this school

  • (5 years ago)

    I attended Bravo from 2002-2006. Bravo is an excellent school to send your children if they are interested in the Medical Field. They offer a wide range of programs such as STAR and the Nursing Program. Additionally it's proximity to 2 hospitals (both at a walking distance) give's student's the best exposure to health related fields. It's also very culturally diverse. The Teacher's are awesome! ( some were not as good but as It was mentioned before the 'good' teachers outweigh the 'bad' teachers) Classes most definitely prepare you for college. I was also part of the AVID program which along with Bravo's competitive curriculum prepared me well for college.

    I went to bravo high in 2000 to 2004. I would recomend to all parents to encourage their children to attend if interested in the medical field.

    I am a former student of Bravo. I attended the first year it opened. I have children of my own now and i look forward to them attending Bravo. Bravo has wonderful teachers who are i was lucky enough to know some of who are still faculty there. Bravo is a school focused on academics and as a parent who wants my children to succeed that is what is most important. If you attend this school thinking because it is a small school you can do whatever you want and not work hard you are mistaken. Some people look at high school as a time to play around instead of concentrating on their futures if that is what you are looking for then yes you are looking at the wrong school however if you want to succeed in life i suggest you take a second look at bravo.

    Im a former student @ bravo it is the worst school i have ever been to in my life. I had no choice but to transfer out the school lacks activities very small lack of diversity. If you go outside just to walk to burg king or someting be aware that there are a few gangs so the safety is bad and the location. I cant recall anyonewho lived next to the place so dont think bout staying after school unles u want to be home by 8-9. The teachers are all jerks i cant really recall a nice1.Pep there are not smart if you want your child to go here bcause the school has high scores dont be foled.
