Brewster Central School District Reviews

district has gone WAY downhill over the last 5 years. It refuses to get rid of teachers because of the shrinking population. If your child doesn't have social, behaviorial or learning issues, they get penalized by being surrounded by kids who do and are held back from reaching their potential. The school district wastes so much money on things it doesn't need. VERY POOR administration, school taxes are outrageous for the education you get. So frustrated I purchased a home in this area. Looking to move my children asap. STAY FAR AWAY!

There are both positives and negatives to Brewster High School. A positive is the learning environment. The teachers are both understanding yet motivating, and the classes are interesting but challenging. The classes are usually interesting and there are no classes which are quite boring. There are also many clubs and activities offered at BHS. We have over 30 clubs, and the majority require no applications. There are also many sports offered in this school, and anyone can try out, although they are very vigorous and demanding. Some cons of the school involve the discrimination that takes place in BHS. There are many incidents of racism, sexism, and homophobia that occur as well. However, there is virtually no punishment for this, and besides having assemblies with speakers who talk about the subject, nothing is really done.
I personally loved that almost all the teachers I had went above and beyond with the students. They always made sure that we understood the material and in some classes life lessons were incorporated. They also were always willing to help you if you were struggling with something that wasn't school related and would get you the help you needed. One thing that I would like to see change is how the substitutes treat the students. Almost every substitute teacher that I have come across has had attitude with the students because they automatically assume we are going to treat them with disrespect because our teacher isn't present.
