I loved how A.L. Brown felt like little families a part of one big family. Sporting events always gathered people together, especially Friday night Football. Go Wonders! Although I loved the atmosphere of the sports, I wish the arts would get more attention. There are so many talented students that don't get enough respect or attention. I applaud them for shining through under the circumstances they work in.
Review A.L. Brown High School
There is a lot of extracurricular activities to do! Football of course is one our main events during the fall/winter time ! Friday night games are one of my best memories being in the student section cheering on our wonders! But when the spring comes we have many different events you could go to such as soccer,baseball, tennis , track and field etc. ! But if you are not into the whole sports thing then they're a multitude of clubs at A L Brown! There's Beta Club,NHS, HOSA, GSA, Anchor Club, Spirit Club, Young Republicans club , the list goes on! These clubs provide several community service opportunity such as alzheimer's and MS walk, Relay for Life, things dealing with our elementary, intermediate and middle schools ! Our clubs really love to be helpful and make an impact on not only our community but surrounding areas as well.
A.L. Brown is not like most highs schools. It is absolutely the MOST diverse place that I have ever been, and this is coming from a girl who was born and raised in Albany, New York and switched between Albany and Buffalo, New York. My high school has diverse "Social classes," "Cliques," and definitely race. The only weird thing is, the students may be very diverse, but the staff is pretty much the same. They say that they care, but very few show it and act on that very statement. The ones that do care actually stand-out and are pretty much admired by the students.
