My son has been at Brashear for three years. It is well run, and the education is great. My son plays football, and the program is one of the better ones in the Pittsburgh Public School system. Highly recommend this school to other parents in the school system.

I graduated in 1981 and was glad to get out of there. I remember a lot of fights, riots and teacher harrassment.

Brashear High School is one of the better public high schools in the pittsburgh public school system I think. I went there and so did my sister and we both did okay. If the school is still open I think I will send my children there if isn't too bad as most of the Pittsburgh Public Schools are getting.
