Brien Mcmahon High School Ratings & Reviews

May 02, 2017 Submitted by a student
I’ve never thought about being a Senator until I attended Brien McMahon High School. McMahon High School is a remarkable place to absorb new things and have pleasurable times while doing it. The teachers and staff are very pleasant and supportive and the school itself is safe. The school is very diverse, no matter who you are, you will find a friend that fits your character. There are even clubs here for you to interact with others like “Peer Mediation,“ “Peer Mentoring,“ “Teen to Teen,“ and many more. Some students are very friendly and helpful and in a day you’ll be sitting with them at lunch. Not often, you’ll find some conflict here and there but, you are always safe in the school faculties will make sure you are safe and everything is taken care of. There’s a strict policy with bullying. They are very supportive, all you’ll have to do is talk to staff and tell them you feel uncomfortable. Our security are kind, respectful, and friendly. They are here for you to talk to if you feel there is nobody else to talk to. A regular day in McMahon, we have 4 periods a day and one class is 1 hour and 30 minutes each. Teachers try their best to make your classes fun but also make them so that you still learn. If you need help you can come to teachers for lunch or extra time so, that they can help you as much as possible. Staff try to make the hallways look the best, they make you feel welcome and apart of the McMahon community. However, not everything is splendid in this school . The bathroom, they are not so clean. They are unsanitary, a lot of stalls don't have locks, some doesn't even have a roll of tissue. Work still needs to get done in the school. Brien McMahon prepares you for college. There are some courses that can get you ready in college. There are some clubs that help you with your career, to give you some experience and of course some clubs just to have fun. Therefore, you get credit for a college course in high school. It is free and early, instead of paying & on time. Some courses help you with your career like as an example, if you want to be a social worker you can be in Psychology & Child Development. By the end of your freshman year, you would love to be in McMahon. You will have great experiences and notice that “ Once a Senator, always a Senator”

Brien McMahon is a public school located on 300 Highland Ave, Norwalk, CT 06854. This school offers many opportunities for children to gain knowledge to reaching their goals. The staff members and students are very welcoming and of all the high schools in Norwalk, I believe, this is a school many should go to. Although, the school was rated 4 out of 10 stars in the website. I’d rate it as being 6 out of 10 stars. This school allows a diversity of amazing students to go to the school. For many years, BMHS has offered programs that others don’t have, for example CGS (Center for Global Studies) allows people to learn about languages and travel to meet people from different ethnicities. This school offers activities and clubs, for example HOSA club, which is a Medical club for students who are interested in the medical field, these students get to participate in blood drives and compete against schools. A variety of sports are offered at BMHS, the athletic teams are very competitive. Some of these sports, include volleyball, basketball, football, tennis, cheerleading, etc. These sports have amazing coaches that care and help students expand their sport skills.The McMahon staff are also a big part of what goes on in the school. They provide a safe place where students can come and talk to them if they have a problem. The counselors help us with our schedule and counsels us on what activities or sports we should join. Teachers and secretary workers are very organized on what happens during school. On Wednesdays, it's a house day, where students meet up with a teacher for 20 minutes, to discuss what happens in school, this helps students interact with other students and help them understand in what ways we as a McMahon family should make the school a safe place. Overall, this school helps and prepares students for the future. The staff helps and cares for their students, and I recommend middle schoolers or other students that are thinking of transferring to this school, to become apart of the BMHS senator's family. Hopefully my evaluation will help you get an idea of what goes on in McMahon.

My experience at Brien McMahon High School has been by far one of the best. It’s very different compared to how things were in middle, and elementary school. I feel more independent, and responsible for myself, which I feel every student should be given that opportunity. I feel prepared for the future already because I feel more on my own. McMahon runs on a block schedule. There are four 90 minute classes everyday, and three 30 minute lunch waves during 3rd period. Depending on the class, some periods go by faster than others. Most teachers know how to organize class lessons and make the most up of the 90 minutes. Other teachers, are disorganized and end up wasting a good 60 minutes of the class. I feel that the block schedule is better than having 7 periods everyday. It gives you an extra day to work on your homework and there is more class time to learn and get work done. Instead of having homeroom every morning like middle and elementary school, we have house once a week. Every Wednesday after second period, every students reports to their house. It’s pretty similar to homeroom. Students have the same house for all four years of high school. Some days their are house activities, sometimes we receive report cards, schedules, or test results. Over time, students grow a bond within their house, whether it’s with the teacher, other students, or both. One thing I really like about McMahon is that it gives us an opportunity to be more independent and responsible for ourselves. We walk from class to class, class to lunch, by ourselves. We have more freedom and control over what we want to do. Many teachers allow us to use our phones, and we can also use them outside of class. In middle school and elementary, we walked to other classes and lunch as a whole class. Overall, McMahon has made me more independent and taught me a lot about myself. Already I have learned many new things about people and how to always put myself first. We grow strong bonds with our peers and our teachers. We also have much more freedom and responsibility compared to middle and elementary school. McMahon can sometimes be annoying but I enjoy coming here and I am proud to be a senator.

Brien McMahon high school is one of best schools in Norwalk CT. Students and teachers are kind. They will treat you with respect. Teachers will provide you with all the information you need. If you don’t understand speak up and tell a teacher. That’s why they are here. If you have a personal problem, go ask to go to a guidance counselor. They will help you a lot. You can also meet a lot of good friends.The school schedule is very different. We have four periods a day, the periods are 1 hour and 30 minutes long. The food at McMahon is well prepared. Lunch has 3 shifts, and each is 30 minutes long. They have good and healthy food choices. They have snacks likes chips and cookies. They also have a school store just in case you get hungry and you can’t wait to lunch. Enjoy!The school is very secure. Security are everywhere. If you want to get to safety just go to the main office or guidance. You can either do that or go around the corner and you will find a security. You won’t have to worry about anything. McMahon prepared for any dangerous attempts from anyone.Students and teachers are big factors here at McMahon. Without a student a teacher can’t determine if they are being a good teacher. Without a teacher a student can’t learn. Students get credits of .25, .5 or 1. Teachers and counselors try to get students 8 credits a year. Student from class of 2017, 2018 and 2019 have to finish the year with 20 credits. But the freshman of this year have to finish with 25 credits.We are a big community. Come and join us here at BMHS.

Tad CarrMr. Carroll4-3-17EnglishEvaluationIncoming Freshman coming in next year you will need to understand that Brien McMahon High School is not a school it's more of a family. Brien McMahon is named after a former U.S senator. I have been attending McMahon for about 7 months now. The transition from middle school to high school is a lot different. You are treated more as an adult than a child and your responsibility has to increase, showing that you can be trusted.McMahon runs on a block schedule. With four 90 minutes classes, and a four minute passing time. The lunch wave runs on a 30 minute shift with 3 waves. Depending on the days, like a 90 minute early dismissal. Each period then is 45 minutes, but you still have same amount of time for lunch. Instead of a homeroom every day for 20 mins in the morning you have a house. What that means is that you are apart of group with your gender throughout the four years. You meet every wednesday and just discuss to school news or class building activities As far as course selection goes they are well prepared. The Guidance Counselors take time of their day to come to your class and make sure each student selects the course they want to take. They go from Junior, to Sophomores, and Freshmen. There are many classes to choose from, going from P.E, to Design and family Consumer science. You may have already chose a course that was either between .5, .25, or 1 credit. These credits helps advance you to take more classes and advance to the next grade. TThe teachers are another big factor of BMHS school. They come in everyday and prepare to teach inside the class and even outside the classroom to give u that everyday life lesson to help you become a better person they see you can become They take their time to well prep every activity to help you in the long run. Wanting to show what it means to learn and apply the skills you learn to live through your adult life and career. BMHS isn’t a school, it’s a Family that treats each other with the utmost respect for who you are
