Brownstown Central High School Reviews
Brownstown Central High School provides a safe environment for students to explore themselves academically and socially. In an always uplifting environment, students are encouraged to push themselves to the best of their abilities, and have fun doing it! This high school truly has in incredible staff that has something to offer to every student.
I usually enjoyed my classes and teachers at BCHS, I loved my choir classes, and my AP teachers were particularly good at helping me get ready for college. But this school also has several problems. Most of the school funding for extracurricular activities goes to sports and sports alone. The choir usually has to finance itself, I remember a few times when Mrs. Brock, our choir teacher, spent money out of her own pocket for choir shows and musical performances. Our drama club doesn't do anything anymore because of a lack of funding. Meanwhile the football field just got remodeled for about a million dollars, not joking, and our gym floor, which was perfectly fine, also got replaced. There could be a perfectly good reason for all of this, but I haven't heard one yet. The school counselors also seemed to be overworked, not usually in their offices when needed, and taking several days to reply to student emails. I think we need another counselor to lighten the load for them.
I went to Brownstown Central for all four years of high school and even graduated from it. As a whole, a fairly nice school with the students' always in mind. Unfortunately, it suffers the same problems that most small town style schools suffer and that is an over-reliance on athletics for income, resulting in better benefits for students that do athletics than those who do not.
