Education and academics are definitely top priority here at Brownsburg High School. Educators and counselors really push students to their full cognitive potential, and it's especially been helpful to me in maintaining a strong grade point average, high grades, and confidence in my learning. The teachers are approachable and for the most part very appreciative and helpful. They want you to succeed as much as you do! Dealing with the construction over the course of my 4 years has been a minuscule obstacle, but the end result will be incredible and I'm glad future generations will be able to enjoy it! Overall, I'm thankful for my time at BHS. I feel confident moving on to the next stage of my life, and I'm so excited.

Overall, Brownsburg High School is a good school for any child to attend. Teachers are committed to their students and ensuring their success. Academics are emphasized, sports teams are funded, and the fine arts are appreciated from afar. The only drawback of BHS is the constant focus and harsh emphasis on test scores. While test scores do play a large role in future development of the corporation, there are instances where the student's all-around talents and achievements should be celebrated. Not just test scores.
