Mountain Brook City Schools Reviews

3 reviews
Mountain Brook is a great school system, but I think the public school system as a whole is flawed. The problem with Mountain Brook is that the school system is very competitive, so the pressure to succeed becomes very overwhelming. I think that the academics sometimes are unnecessarily difficult, and the workload is often unmanageable. I think that the public school system has to be reformed before any substantial change can be made to improve the academics of most school systems in America. However, I will say that my experience at Mountain Brook during my elementary school years were filled with some of the sweetest, most caring teachers I have ever met.
Review Mountain Brook City Schools
Mountain Brook is a wonderful place to grow up and raise a family. The community is extremely united, the people of the area are very driven and successful, and the school system prepares the students unlike any other school in the Southeast.
Most of the teachers are very straight-forward, good teachers. Although, many people do complain about the amount of workload, they are still good teachers in the classroom usually.
