Mountain Brook City Schools Reviews
Mountain Brook is great because it offers a wide variety of classes. There are so many fine arts, sports, and business related activities and classes that it is impossible to find a student that doesn't fit in somewhere. Mountain Brook does a wonderful job of providing challenging classes with helpful and supportive teachers. Some of the teachers I have had in the Mountain Brook School System have shaped me as the person that I am today, and I am eternally grateful for that. Another great thing about Mountain Brook is the amount of clubs. There are a lot of clubs that help students to express themselves and make friends. There are very few things I can criticize about Mountain Brook. I think the one negative thing is the lack of diversity. We are a predominantly white school, and, even though the diversity has grown over the past few years, I still do not think we are diverse enough.
The Mountain Brook City Schools system is an oasis of pure education: students are taught to strive for the best of the best, to be the best of the best, to reach the best of the best. Of course, this creates a highly competitive environment, however the students leave the school each day knowing they've learned from a team of teachers that really, truly care what happens to their students. Whether a student is a part of the wonderful elementary schools, expansive junior high school, or upbeat high school, him or her is receiving a fantastic education that will linger with the student forever.
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.
