5/14/2012parentOur daughter is about to complete her 6th grade year at Brogden, and she has had a wonderful year. The teachers and staff are amazing and completely dedicated to creating a safe environment and a smooth transition from Elementary School!
1/15/2012parentI have an eighth grader in this school. I find most of my child's teachers to be very good to excellent. The overall culture and leadership of the school is hierarchical, non-responsive, and lacking in imagination. Police presence is strong and thus there is a lot of order in the hallways. There are no structured opportunities for parents to meet teachers. There are very few after school activities. Most of the "electives" (which include music and languages) are scheduled within the same block of time. Physical and health education are poorly taught.
5/16/2010parentBrogden is a great school with terrific & caring teachers.
10/3/2009otherBrogden Middle School has a diverse student population and challenging urban environment. In my opinion, this award should go to a school like Brogden that needs funds to be the best it can be, instead of some well-funded school that already has high ratings and doesn't need the money.

9/23/2009parentBrogden goes to unbelievable lengths to make the transition from elementary to middle school smooth for sixth graders. I was very worried about the initial adjustment, but between keeping the 6th graders seperate and regular progress reports to keep parents in the loop, it has been smooth sailing so far. My son loves going to school in the morning. What could be better?
