The best school I'm going to and I've been to. The school is a place to open up your self and be with old friends but make a lot of new ones in your two years there.

Morale is not good, leadership sorely lacking, chaos and disorganization greeted returning students this Fall.

I'm happy to see that Brannan has recently recovered in most academic areas after going through radical changes in 2003.

Sacramento City Unified School District
* In 2011-2012 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.
