The school could be better. The academics need to be updated. We need new textbooks and better materials. The teachers do the best they can with the resources they have. The school could definitely use some updates and better textbooks. Some things are better than others but they need to stop making excuses as to why things are bad. The administration needs to fix the things that are wrong in the school, not just say "in the new school."

Most teachers are very hands on and are genuinely invested in the students. The communication between staff could use improvement, students present in the building are often marked absent becuase of the lack of communication.
My favorite thing about Brush is the small class sizes and teachers. They are always willing to help and give advice on post high school life. One thing I would like to see change is the class options, I would like to see more music based classes.
