We are a quality public high school striving to meet the needs of every student. Numerous Advanced Placement and Honors courses are offered in our curriculum. Additionally our students participate in a Dual Enrollment Program in conjunction with Reading Area Community College. This program allows students to earn college credit, while at the same time being challenged by the rigorous academic programs. Our prolific Fine Arts Department consisting of Art, Band, and Vocal Music programs have consistently brought high honors to our school. Likewise, we have quite an accomplished athletic program for a school of our size. Brandywine Heights High School offers something for everyone. From our academic classes and activities to our extra-curricular offerings we provide an array of opportunities to enrich the high school years and connect students to school so that they experience success.
As we begin the month of May and the end of the academic year is quickly approaching, BHHS becomes extremely busy with field trips, Keystone Exam testing, final exams, A.P. exams, and commencement just to name a few. In years past, seniors have generally taken their senior exams on half days; however, due to the inclement weather and school closures this year, seniors will be below the required hours of instruction mandated by the State of PA. As a result, seniors will have full days for their exam days. With this change, seniors will now meet the mandated hours.
Regarding the end of year schedule, Mrs. Carpenito (H.S. Assistant Principal) is working through the final details and the schedule will be posted here by the end of the day Friday, May 4th. For any questions regarding the end of the year schedule or Keystone exams, please contact Mrs. Carpenito directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. Should you have any questions regarding A.P. testing, please contact Ms. Stricker (Guidance Counselor) at email@example.com.
I wish all our students and families a wonderful end to the school year!
Please reference the End of year Schedule for dates and times for all testing.
