    I am very disappointed with the Principal and staff of this once great school. They managed to drag the 2006 Inspiration Award winning school so low that it is now on probation for the next two years. The principal and staff treat the students like prisoners on concentrate on looks versus truly doing their duty of teaching and mentoring the students. The Texas Education Agency sent word of the school's probation and has given parents and students the option to transfer to a better school. I hope the staff takes a long hard look at their lack luster performance and choosing to try to return Brackenridge to its once great status. We owe it to our students state and country.

    I love this school! It sends more kids to college than any other school in the area and garners over $9 million dollars a year in financial aid for the students! They are also exemplary in Social Studies and Special Ed Departments!

    I believe this school should not be considered at all. There is too much drama and the principal is not very involed at all. I am a student and have to stay here but if it were my choice I would leave.
