As a graduate of Brownwood High School I can argue that while Brownwood High has many great qualities, the bad out weighs the good. The school curriculum is primarily busy work and majority (note: I did not say ALL. There are few amazing teachers) of teachers do the bare minimum. The leadership is mostly a joke as rules are hardly enforced. The accountability among teachers I would say is disgusting. In the four year I went to brownwood 5 teachers were caught (more so had their wrists slapped) for inappropriate relationships with students.

As I am an enrolled student at Brownwood High School, I feel that the school is about average. Our school priorities are mostly in sports and not in academics. At my school, you must be in Preap or AP classes to get a fairly good education. Texas schools love their football, so the school spirit is very high during football season. I think a lot of changes could be put in place, such as adding UIL classes for further involvement in academics, and safety at Brownwood High could be better, for that many students are trouble makers. To conclude, there are many things my school could fix. In general, my school is about average.
The teachers at Brownwood High are great! They really wanna make sure you understand the course material. Brownwood has a very excellent athletics department; everyone loves to show school spirit! The Fine Arts department are amazing and the students who participate in competitions usually go on to regionals and state. The only thing I would change personally is the cafeteria food. My freshman year the cafeteria food was really good, but then the school got with this new program and I noticed many people weren't happy with it.
