    Overall Experience: Bullying is a huge problem at BHS you wont be taken seriously, I get most schools have this issue but no matter how many times you go to the administration about it they will just bring the person in and give out warnings. Drugs and Alcohol is also another issue kids at this school literally do deals at the school and never get caught, not only that but there have been people who several times have came to school high/stoned there was one kid who gave a teacher a pot brownie that became headline news. The teachers there were the only good aspect of the school not all of them however but most fit the bill and do great at their jobs.

    Overall Experience: I had the best experience playing sports for my school. Playing 2 sports really introduced me to a lot of new people my freshman year and helped me create friends that I know will last a life time! Also, playing sports for my school really showed me the true definition of teamwork and family.

    Overall Experience: I love the student body at Broadneck. That is definitely the best part about the school. Despite the large class sizes, people know almost everyone else very well. The student population is tight knit and there is little to no bullying. It is unique to have a school where the students get along well with each other and know each others names, even with class sizes in the 500s. The downfall to the school is the administration. I cannot recommend any office staff, counselor, admin, or coach to a student. A couple of teachers are high quality and make a difference for the school but they are highly outnumbered by those who have negatively effected the school. Due to the other students, I would not mind going to Broadneck to do it all over but I would recommend that potential students research other schools in the area because there is probably a better one out there.
