Broughton rocks. Among other things, its excellent support of the arts, nationally recognized International Baccalaureate program, and amazing staff truly help to further the education of its students. It also has an awesome marching band. Just saying.

I have had three children attend Broughton High School and we just love it.

As a former student, my education at Broughton prepared me for university and eventually graduate school. The academic and extracurricular programs that are available to the student body allow students the chance to grow and develop, if they choose to do so. Broughton was a very social environment as well, which can be difficult for some students to cope with and beneficial to others who enjoy a rich interpersonal experience. The faculty was some of best that I have had the pleasure to learn from; however, the administration at times seemed more focused on developing the prestige of the school on a state and national level rather than maintaining services essential to student life. Overall, I believe Broughton to be a positive choice for students and a school that provides many opportunities to its students.

Broughton is a high school that is rich in tradition. It provides students with an excellent academic and athletic environment which can best be described as a 'community'. But words are hard to find to describe it. I suggest that you (1) visit the school website at http://broughton.wcpss.net/ and (2) call the administration office to request permission to visit Broughton on a school day so you can 'feel' the environment. Take the time to walk the halls, and view the academic and extracurricular material posted. Visit Holliday Gymnasium and view the huge trophy, plaque and photo collection. It has been my pleasure to deal with teachers and administrators, as well as coaches and trainers who honestly cared about my son during these last four years.

broughton is a great school, there are more classes available than a student will ever need, the classes are challenging and the school is very competitive, but this is a precursor for excellence, over 80% of my graduating class is enrolled at a 4-year university, and over 60 students are attending unc-chapel hill, the strength of the schools athletic program stands alone with more than triple the number of state championships than any other school in north carolina

Broughton is a school rich in history and tradition, with loyal alumni, staff and parents. Parent support is strong with athletics and the fine arts (showchoir, band, orchestra.) Men's and women's tennis, women's soccer, and men's golf have established mini-dynasties in NC high school athletics. Teachers and staff support and celebrate student success in and out of the classroom, ie athletes, student 'politicians', students involved with the fine arts. Principal communication and reponse time to parent concerns is outstanding. Academics have been challenging and our teachers have been caring and dedicated (with a few minor exceptions.) Broughton renovations to be finished in the coming year. Overcrowding is a problem as school popularity continues to grow.

Broughton has a lot to offer. They offer an endless amount of AP classes, but the lower level classes are very strong as well. The IB program is outstanding and growing every year. The school has a lot of artsy classes to offer. Broughton produces excellent athletics. The Broughton parents are very involved. There are a lot of active alumni. Like all schools there are the few 'bad' teachers, but at Broughton there are so few. The school isn't as big and confusing as it looks. It is much more simple than most high schools. It is compacted on to a small piece of land also. There are a lot of clubs to participate in, and if you can't find one for you, you can start one. It is hard to magnet into because of overcrowding, so get you kids in if you have the chance.

Four of my children in three different high schools over the years - 2 at Broughton. Like any school Broughton has its flaws or areas of needed improvement, but overall top notch.

Really a nice campus, and this school has a great reputation. But, its a huge school, and institution, with too many problems to list. There are major discipline issues arising from too big a school, too many children, teachers who cannot keep up with everyone. It is easy for your child to get lost and fall into problems that no one will notice.

The leadership is very weak. There are many extracurricular acivities - but sports is the big one. Music, espcially the vocal music, has been cut over years and is now 2nd rate where they were once #1 nationally! The quality of the IB curriculum is outstanding and demanding.

My daughter is a senior at Broughton, and I just want to say that she and I have been very happy with the quality of this school. She was districted for another high school in Raleigh, but we chose to send her to Broughton as a magnet student. This school is very strong academically and in the performing arts, offering much more variety in course choice (in both areas) than the typical non-magnet public high school. Broughton has a private school atmosphere in a public school setting. I highly recommend it.

Faculty and staff very committed to upgrading Broughton in all areas - academics, diversity, sports and safety. It is an older buidling that is in its third year of a three year renovation project and has character and beauty that many new schools lack. As it has been around since 1936, broughton has a dedicated and loyal group of parents/grandparents who probably attended the schoo themselves. Thus, it also has some outdated but traditional events (Queen of Hearts Ball). Diversity of academics is great - something for everyone. The school is changing in a healthy way with the IB program. Principal is outstanding. Disorganization is endemic to ongoing physical remodelling and a huge growth in number of students - who wouldnt have 'growing pains'? Many people from out of state think of Broughton as a private school because of its educational opportunities.
