Birmingham City Schools Reviews
What I like about Birmingham City Schools is that they give courses for high paying job professions. I also like how they teach you real-world situations and on-the-job experiences through field trips. There is always that one teacher (or two) that you will remember at any of the schools in the system. What I dislike about Birmingham City Schools is the environment of kids that are very immature. They fully don't know that Birmingham City Schools is trying to turn African Americans and Hispanics into intelligent, high academic students with jobs that helps them pay for their family. One of my teachers from BCS told me, "Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world. -Nelson Mandela". That stuck with me for 5 years til this day.
Birmingham City Schools strive for excellence! You can tell that all of the faculty cares deeply for every student. Their environment is designed to help students learn and grow in academics, and personal growth. The facilities are kept up with, and always clean. They arrange several fun events for students and their families to participate, making a child's education not only the school's job, but a community involvement.
The principal was very supportive and concern about the student body. He tried to ensure everyone safety . He would would talk to you and if you needed help in yourstodry academics, he would make sure the teachers worked with you so that you want fail the class. BHC receivs a lot of negative attentions but when things are well and a student is doing something good, the media does not cover that story. All kids from HUffman arent bad. At the end of the school year my graduating class felt like a family.
