Brooks Academy of Science & Engineering Reviews

Brooks does not have many pleasing qualities regarding facilities, transportation, administration, food, sports, etc, but the school manages to have changed at a slower rate than expected; it's better than nothing. There has been many teachers to up and leave throughout the school year because of late hire, and does not have favorable accommodations for teachers or students. There is lack of spirit and facilities. Lack of opportunity due to "money."

As a parent of a Brooks Academy student I am pleased with the academic curriculum which allows my child to challenge his intelligence in ways that are unimaginable. Compared to other schools they have attended in the past, I feel my child has learned so much and shown his full potential. I am proud to say he will be graduating this year from this academy with honors. The only downside I see is the staff not staying there for too long. Has nothing to do with students they do great work with them. I say this from experience cause my child was receiving letters from universities since he was in 10th grade! you don't see this very often.
Although the teachers tend to be very passionate about what they do, the school tends to have very little funding, and keeps making mistakes in management. Not very many people attending while I was there were very happy with the overall experience, but I've heard that it's gotten a little better in the year or so since I left.
