    The best high school by far! This school gets many new teachers every year but they are all great teachers.

    This is the ABSOLUTE best high school in the area. My daughter is actually a transfer student from O'Connor High School. And why? Because Brandeis High School has an amazing AFJROTC program great academic standards and support and Dr. Berger is one of Northside's most involved principals.

    I have just graduated from this school and I absolutely LOVED it there. In every grade many of my teachers loved to teach and treated all of the students as equals. The school had great school spirit that brought everyone together and I personally wouldn't want to go anywhere else.

    I love this school. It's new it's clean. The faculty are wonderful and very well disciplined. We happened to fall into this school due to re-zoning but we love it our daughter loves it and we look forward to our son going there.

    Brandeis High School is a wonderful school. All of the teachers and administrators are excellent. The students know they can suceed because they have teachers that go above and beyond. The AP teachers are top notch. They host before and after school study sessions. The library is open to the students after regular school hours. The track/cross country program is excellent! The principals and counselors are parent friendly. The campus is only 4 years old so it is beautiful.

    Brandeis is such a great school. The majority of the teachers excel at teaching and present us with challenges everyday. The orchestra and band programs are magnificent. The athletics are also great. The student body is good as well but is not perfect as is expected from teens. All in all Brandeis is a unique school. (

    To the July 9 2009 posting if your lack of correct spelling and grammar is any indication then the teachers MUST be horrible! Learn to spell and write before you judge your teachers!

    I'm going to brandeis & i think some teachers arnt fitted for teaching. Dont get me wrong i respect them and know all teachers have their own recipe for teaching their own way but some of the teachers i had last year were unexceptable.
