Brewer School Department Reviews

My experience in Brewer was good for the most part. There was a lot to get a student involved, and although the sports teams are very political...I still had a great time. Teachers are great, along with the staff and students. Middle School was by far my favorite years. Especially 8th grade. We did so many great and fun things as a class and the teachers were very personalble and was close to every student.

Has great teachers that you can connect with, and are great at getting their point across. The administration won't accept anything about their high school Bowling team and their success though...
I enjoyed my four years here with the teachers who were willing to help me. However, there were some who's class I dreaded going too. The teachers I liked were understanding of the hard time I went through during my four years here. I was thankful for them because if it wasn't for them, I wouldn't be where I am today. I look back now and am actually kind of thankful for the teachers that didn't help me or didn't seem to care. For them, I am proud to show them how far I have come without their help. So overall, I am thankful for my education at Brewer High School.
