BHS is a good school with caring teachers who teach well and counselors and staff who want you to be safe and and will do anything they can to help you. Some students are a bit snobby, though -- it's a school of cliques. And hallways are too small, therefore they get crowded fast during passing time. Other than that, it's a great school. I really like spirit week and how encouraging we all are on football games. Full of clubs and sports to join as well.

Brookfield High School is packed with teachers and administrators who truly care about students. There are many extra-curricular opportunities for students as well, in sports, visual and performing arts, and countless volunteer organizations like Big Brother Big Sister, Best Buddies, and Key Club. The community spirit at Brookfield High School is very strong, and helps ensure all students feel connected and important at the school.
Brookfield high school is unique. School spirit makes it fun, but the administration tries to constrain everyone to act in a robotic way. They do not offer enough challenging programs or classes. The clubs are basically non existent and they do not prepare you for college.
