BRUNSWICK HIGH SCHOOL has served the greater Brunswick community for more than a century. Our current building opened its doors in 1965. The school is located in a rural area of the county among farms and rolling foothills just outside Brunswick. BHS is a comprehensive high school operating on a 90-minute class schedule, with 4-classes/semester, allowing students to earn 8 credits each school year. A wonderful sense of community and feelings of pride and loyalty predominate at BHS.

At BHS, we believe that each student is unique and valuable and all can learn and achieve mastery regardless of previous academic performance. It is our responsibility to establish and maintain an environment that respects individual learning styles, capitalizes on each student's natural curiosity and nurtures the desire to learn.

Our mission at Brunswick High School is excellence in all we do. BHS features a myriad of smaller learning communities that emphasize rigor and relevance. We host the only Teaching Academy in the county. The academy prepares 12th grade students for a career in teaching and includes an introduction to teaching and a field experience. Our Advanced Placement Experience Scholars (APEX) program challenges students to participate in a minimum of six advanced placement courses. BHS also boasts a comprehensive auto mechanics program. This Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) certified program prepares automotive students for certification guided by the rigorous nationally recognized industry standards. The Brunswick Express Learning Lab (BELL) offers after-school tutoring in reading, math and other academics and elective courses on Tuesdays and Wednesdays with transportation provided. The school demonstrates a strong commitment to student activities such as clubs, music, drama and athletics that address varied interests and abilities. BHS athletic teams have won numerous county, league and state championships, which is unique considering we are the smallest high school in the county.

With over 80% of our students attending community college, a 4-year college or business/technical school, BHS prepares students for a variety of post-secondary options.
