Brookline High School Reviews

Last year, I met with multiple deans and administrators to try to change the sexual assault policy written in the handbook because it was super vague and needed reform, as well as worked with other students to start a "Day For Change"; an all day school assembly where we talked about issues of sexual assault and harassment and how they are prevalent at our school. The administration ultimately did nothing after our meetings, saying it was out of their hand, and the "Day For Change" was not organized or advertised by the actual school well enough for it to actually make a change. If I could change anything about my school, I'd definitely want to focus on these issues as well as other social issues that are being ignored.

I enjoyed rated Brookline due to the curriculum, and how engaging the teachers, and how invested they are to the students to help them succeed. Yet, i hate to say this but many of the students smoke weed, vape/juul. And some writings of racist remarks/ and videos were found on the wall, and videos from the students (mostly were from white students). Yet many of the students protested against this, which was a relief and the school either suspended or expelled the students. And the school in general promotes to be very accepting to LGBT, and diversity.
BHS has been a great school, but still has its issues. The culture has allowed students to speak out against issues that are important to them and the school. The current headmaster truly listens to students concerns and knows everyones name! The rigorous workload has prepared me for the work to come later in my life, but can also be over kill especially when it is busy work. Teachers should focus less on giving an assignment, but focus on an assignment that really has meaning.
