BRHS had an excellent 2015-2016 school year with many highlights. BRHS is very proud to be included in the rankings of U.S. News and World Reports "Nations Best High Schools". Their commitment to academics, the arts, as well as athletics has served us well over the years. This year, the High School was able to expand their enhanced dual enrollment program to offer eight different college courses on the BRHS campus and over 100 students were able to earn over 850 college credits.
The Theatrical Arts Department had a great year with Shrek the Musical, Fools, and Into the Woods Jr. Students had great success at the Michigan Education Theatre Festival and several were offered scholarships and/or the prestigious opportunity of performing at the Michigan Youth Arts Festival.
The band program continued to shine. Wind Symphony performed for the 7th time in school history at the Michigan Music Conference on January 22nd, 2016. In addition, The Chamber Brass ensemble was selected to perform at the 2016 Michigan Youth Arts Festival. Both prestigious honors! To add "icing on the cake", Junior Jacob Bleeker represented BRHS at the MYAF Concerto Competition and was among the top 11 soloists in the entire state.
Finally, as a general point of pride, BRHS alumni Kramer Milan (Master's) and Albert Jiao (Bachelor's) both graduated from Yale University.
