I graduated from BRHS in 2006. Virtually everything about this school was excellent - from the teachers to the student body to the student organizations to the athletics department. Truly a top notch school with high caliber academics. As a teacher now, and having been in many other better and far worse schools, I can say that both students and teachers who land at ''BR'' are truly lucky and blessed to be there. GO PANTHERS!!!
