I graduated from BRMS in 2002. At the time, the school and the district were undergoing renovations to accommodate the bulging class sizes. Academically, the school was very strong, and many of the students were eager to learn. The administration was also strong, and the many of the parents re-enforced the value of an education to their children. This produced a positive environment conducive to learning. As a teacher, I would consider anyone able to land at BRMS extremely lucky!
