A.L. Brown High School Reviews

228 reviews

A L brown is a very diverse school in a moderately conservative area which created a divide among our students. Often times it felt that student concerns fell on deaf ears, fortunately the school is very accepting and encouraging to student lead programs and events. I loved having the option to get involved with my community and school, and as leadership member of our schools lgbt club, I felt as though I had a fair platform. Kannapolis is a town transforming from a small mill community to a stem focused city which leaves A L Brown in an interesting transition that doesn't properly advocate for students from "old" or "new" Kannapolis; I do believe that in the next 10 years A L Brown will become an amazing school that will prepare students for any career, as it is already setting up useful vocational and stem courses.

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.
AL Brown provides you with what you need to succeed in school, but doesn't encourage students to utilize them or accommodate student's needs very well. Teachers aren't all as encouraging and supportive I'd like them to be. I believe the school is dismissive of the student body's opinions and recommendations, especially when the idea challenges their (very) conservative beliefs. Student advocacy is also very limited, without the support of many peers, chances are you cannot push an idea forward and get administration to hear them.
