Sarah Spencer, Brandon Teacher of the Year!!!

Sarah Spencer, Teacher of the Year

We are so proud to announce that one of our awesome teachers at Brandon Middle School has been chosen as Brandon Teacher of the Year!  Sarah Spencer has been giving her best to her students for the past 19 years. She taught for many years at Brandon Fletcher Intermediate School until its closing a couple of years ago. Fortunately for us, she landed at Brandon Middle School where she continues to inspire learning and instilling confidence in her students. Mrs. Spencer is currently spearheading the middle school STEM program, Project Lead the Way, always finding new ways to challenge her students every day. She helps her students to find the best in themselves and encourages them to use their findings to be best student that they can be. This is a well deserved honor and the Brandon Middle School staff and student body are very proud! Congratulations Mrs. Spencer!!

 

The Choice Is Yours!

Did You Know?


Music is an integral part of student life at Brandon. With a variety of bands and choirs from the elementary schools to the high school, we have something for any musical interest.


Virtual learning has taken hold at Brandon. With a menu of options to meet special academic requests and scheduling conflicts, our virtual school has seen tremendous growth.


Academics are a priority at all grade levels. With advanced and honors opportunities at the lower grades to a large AP offering, we can challenge even the most motivated students.


Graduation is just the beginning. Recent graduates have matriculated at MIT, University of Chicago, University of Michigan, Michigan State, and many other excellent schools.


Athletics bring our community together. Competing in the Flint Metro League, our Blackhawks regularly compete for league titles and berths in the state tournament.


Technology is part of our fabric. Each school in our district is equipped with state of the art technology, highlighted by a 1:1 device to student ratio at Harvey-Swanson Elementary.
