I am a sophomore and and cannot even put into words how much I love BA. Im in Avid and joined byran adams bell drill team. Seems like not everyone has been informed, but we are progressing. I believe we will achieve and progress more as long as we have Mr.Kastle running our school. If you are a parent of a student that attends BA, encourage your son or daughter to join Avid and take multiple AP courses. I believe that you cannot take control of where you came from, but you can control where you are going.

At first my daughter disliked how everything was old and dirty and broken, that the building was in disrepair, how the teachers complained that there was no money for new things to make it nice, and how there were a lot of roughnecks attending. For about the first 6 weeks she was scared to go. Her last school was new and in a much, much better neighborhood. So understandably she'd need time to readjust. Most parents in our neighborhood send their kids to private schools because DISD has a reputation for poor schooling and bad financial choices.

Look its not the school or the staff's fault for any of the problems going on or that are spread about B.A. As a alumni (Class of 2005) myself, as is most of my family... No one is to blame for each and every individuals actions and yes parents can be influential but they can not sit over there children 24/7 and know there every thought and every move. Take my experience for example I was in honors classes and had good grades freshman year well following year still in same classes and still managed to pass them all, but skipped more than half the year literally! Sad thing is my parents had no clue and when they found out what could they really do, but it gets better when i skipped i did not skip with class mates it was people i actually meet else where. If your child skips a lot use there smart phone to your advantage. technology is a great tool and as a parent its your right to know and be concerned about your child. But its not fair for anyone to point fingers, especially with the attitudes the younger generations have.

PARENTS KEEP YOUR KIDS AWAY!!!! Administration lies to your face and teachers bicker among themselves.

I attended BA from 1981-1985 and the school was off the chain. The teachers back then were so serious about their kids, and their teaching us to learn. Maybe it's not the school; have you ever just sat back and thought...maybe it's the way the kids are being brought up at home in these times. If a child doesn't get that up bringing at home, you can't expect for the teachers to teach them & then have the kids being disrespectful. I've walked down these same halls and have noticed that there's a lot of disrespect; foul language; kids saggin' with the pants. And me being a parent it's like the kids could care less that there was any ADULTS around. My daughter graduated from DeSoto High this year (2012), but I still have a younger one who would love to attend my High School Alma Mata, but with what I've witnessed lately with the out of control students. She will also be attending the remaining of her schooling in the DeSoto area. I would loved for my girls to be like me: BA COUGAR 4 LIFE.

Yes, Bryan Adams High School has been known as a bad, low preforming school. But as a Junior at BA, I can tell you things are improving very well this year. Everyone is stepping up from Teachers, Adminstrators to even the Students. The extracirricular activties are improving as well. The BA Marching Band recieved a rating of 1 which is for superior at their marching contest and will be heading to Area on Oct 29. The Belles and the Cheerleaders are also doing a great job at keeping the school spirt! These organizations are getting involved in helping out the community with any way as possible. Also we just got a new principal, which from the looks of it, he is going to do a very good job at shaping things up at Bryan Adams High School: Home Of the Cougars!

I am a BA parent very involved with PTSA and SBDM and I have to say "WE LOVE BA!!!!" We have had a rough few years but we have a new principal that is up for the challenge! She and her administrators are fantastic! My daughter informed me that she learned more in her first 3 months at BA than she had her entire life. Powerful statement coming from someone who is at the head of her class!!!

Bryan Adams High School is an outstanding place for students to learn, grow and prepare for college! The faculty truely cares about their students and are completely committed to the success of each and every student! My daughter will be a Senior for the '09-'10 school year, and her success has been the direct result of the connections she's made with her teachers and administrators. I am extremely proud to call this school ours! GO COUGARS!

The school cannot keep up with the kids, my son has differing absences in every class from 1 to 15, and no, he's not skipping class, it's that they have rearranged his schedule upteen times. Every time we try to contact the school by phone, we have to leave a message, and the call never (not once) gets returned. You have to try and try until hopefully you reach someone. My son has went through this for the two years he has been there and it is really ridiculous. They don't seem to care at all. I was also an alumni of BA, and it wasn't any better when I was there. The teachers and curriculum may be okay, but that is school. Without parents and teachers working together, or at least teachers that care enough to know whether you are present or absent, it is nothing more than mediocre

i have s doughter at Bryan Adams and in the past 3 years its changed alot from changing principles to updating the school. Promises were maid but unfortunately not fullfill. Since Mrs. Ramos left school spirit is hard to find and now its more of an institution.. Their not preparing the students for colledge... From telling the students where to sit and when to use the restroom their not preparing them for the future..

I have two kids that attend BA and they are both in enjoying their experience at BA. I'm a Dallas person and will always be.. We intentionally moved to the area as BA was one of the better schools in Dallas (12 years ago) and though it's changed since then.. I still consider it to be one of the better schools in Dallas. I feel they are safer in school than out of it. The teachers have been great and sometimes you need an authoritarian to head it up to get it straightened out.. Thanks BA.
