Broughal Middle School
Broughal (Brock-al) Community Middle School is located in the heart of the South Side of Bethlehem, PA, about an hour’s drive southwest of New York City, and fifty miles north of Philadelphia. As a Title I Schoolwide program, Broughal receives federal resources to help all students receive a quality education and meet academic standards. It is located on the same side of Bethlehem as the Bethlehem Steel plant, which has closed, but remains a major part of the South Side’s history. The opening of the steel plant caused many people to immigrate to the Lehigh Valley, looking for work. Though the South Side was once a declining neighborhood, it is now beginning to flourish due in part to the strong involvement of the many small businesses and community residents who have made their homes on the South Side.
