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.

Brookline High School is a diverse and welcoming community. Everyone is willing to help, especially the adults and some of the upperclassmen who are Junior Mentors or Junior Ambassadors (who help freshman and international/new students). Not only is the community diverse but the classes and electives that are offered vary as well from metals to drama to marine biology. BHS also stays in touch with the Brookline community through the Sagamore, an independent student newspaper. On the whole, it is a tightknit community that comes together during tough times and celebrates together during good times.
Let me me start off by saying Brookline Highschool has the best Principal,and best head of deans. These two are the only thing that makes the school run some what smoothly. But bullying, fighting are always happening. The other teachers seem to be more focused on themselves and sweeping problems under the rug then mediation and fixing them the beat the can. In my 4 years at the school, every problem that arrized social workers didn’t try there best to help. Worst of all the Special Ed teachers were rude; and hurtfull to their kids and treated them as if there not human beings. They definitely need more classes on being better with the Kids
