There are so many great teachers that I love! They are fun to talk to outside of class and in the hall ways. Because Brown Deer is so small, every teacher knows just about every student. Conversations are easy to start with the teachers. However, there is one teacher on my mind right now that is very insensitive to student's personal lives and problems. She doesn't seem to have much sympathy for her students. Other than that, the teachers are awesome. You can always find them outside of class and after school for help. During our HIP periods, there is a math and writing workshop where you can go to get extra help if you need it.

Overall, Brown Deer is welcoming and accepting of everyone. Most students don't perform very well academically and seem not to care, but there are some who truly care and are high achievers. Too bad the academics are taught on a lower level than many other high schools. So many amazing teachers recently left, including the entire English department, so there are many new teachers who aren't quite acclimated to the district and the students quite yet. Many teachers are very committed to their students though. Good school but not the best.
Brown Deer High school excels in diversity amongst students and teachers. We all are for the most part accepting of each other. The school's academics are okay but could definitely be improved. The majority of the teachers who truly cared for the students have been fired and a lot of the replacements are new out of college teachers. I am not saying there arent still teachers who truly love the students and care for their wellbeings because there are. These individuals are who make the school shine.
