I'd like to share some information with other parents in regard to Brawley Union High School — good news. There is a new and exciting form of teaching; ninth-grade level, that my son is experiencing and it's helped to renew my faith in BUHS.
It involves three outstanding teachers who have formed an academy — a bond between the science, English, and math classes. This forms a sort of "tag-teaming" between the teachers so that the students cannot lag behind in any of those three classes.
I was impressed on back-to-school night with the concept and have since attended a group meeting after school — with the three teachers — to learn more about it. These teachers are to be applauded for their "extra" efforts over and beyond school hours; I've even talked to two of them at home after 6 p.m. (Sometimes it is hard to get return calls from teachers after hours). They encourage and want parent involvement — which is necessary to ensure the child's entrance to college.
