    Brandywine springs is a wonderful school. I have been there for 4 years and I love the school. The teachers are great at teaching. Bullying happens a little. My sister gets bullied often and so do I. Make sure your child is confident before they attend this school or they will get picked on.

    Mixed reviews on this school. I had 3 kids there from 2000-2010. Elementary was awesome - great teachers (except for one 2nd grade teacher) that not only taught the kids well but were supportive and nurturing. The middle school experience was horrible though. Not very well thought out in regards to exploratory classes sports clubs or field trips and only a few good teachers in the 3 years of middle school. Most should be fired because they were that bad. When the school first opened all the teachers were hand picked but for some reason it seems middle school got all the rejects that other schools didn't want. The difference between the elementary teachers and middle school teachers was like night and day. Also the teachers did what they wanted and walked all over the principal the past couple of years so it's probably a good thing he retired. I rated the principal leadership low because of that. For elementary it's a very good school but I'd advise going elsewhere for middle school. Parental involvement has remained strong over the years and is certainly one of the advantages to this school.
