Brunswick High School (BHS) is an American public high school located in Brunswick, Frederick County, Maryland, United States.

Overview[edit]

The school is near the Virginia border near the Potomac River, just off of Maryland Route 464, and a couple miles southeast of U.S. Route 340.

The current building was constructed in 1965. The building has 79,743 square feet (7,408.4 m2) of space on 50.3 acres (20.4 ha) of land. There are two gymnasiums, and a vocational technology wing including auto mechanics.
