Brooks Academy has it's up and downs, just like any other school. Honestly, one of the things that stand out now more than it did before, is the schools safety. I know that the school cares deeply about our safety. Again, it seems as difficult to protect students from students. In other words, the things that are said to one another, or something as simple as not talking to someone due to how different they are. Now, i have to say, i'm no better than anyone else. But, if i were to try to convince one another to all get long, or to be at the very best with each other, i'd like to see that change in our school. Sadly, it almost seems to good to be true. But, overall, the school has greatly increased in several different areas, to help the students, teachers, parents, and the school itself.

I have been living in San Antonio for 3 years now and my girls have been in Brooks Academy since then. Excellent teachers and support team. If your kid is more academic than sports this school is for you! I highly recommend it! Great job everyone.
I love that students are involved in coding and robotics at a very early age. Class content is challenging but my kids are getting a feel for what college structure is. Athletic Director is amazing. She cares deeply for student athletes. Girls Athletics is low, but looking forward to see this grow and thrive.
