Mountain Brook City Schools Reviews
Mountain Brook has excellent programs for both gifted/advanced and average students that start in the elementary schools. Most of the teachers are experienced(at least 3 years teaching at another school) and all are well qualified. I never had a bad teacher, although the teachers who teach Advanced or AP classes were usually better. The teachers and faculty truly care about each student and want them to learn in a safe environment. At the high school, there are gates at each entrance with a security guard controlling them. There are tons of clubs, activities, and sports to get involved in, as well as outside opportunities that many schools don't offer. There is a lot of space in all of the schools for socializing, studying, eating, and collaborating. The biggest problem is the diversity(it is a majority White school with small percentages of Asian, Hispanic, etc. students and about 1% African American students.)
This is the best school system in Alabama. The collaboration between admins, teachers and parents make for a successful student. Their curriculum, because it is stringent, ensures your child is head and shoulders above others. In addition, it prepares your child for the ACT/ SAT tests which in turn, helps them to secure a higher score.
Through my tenure at Mountain Brook, I have felt very prepared for my life in the future. The schoolwork, although sometimes strenuous, has improved my academic abilities heavily, as proven through my ACT scores and GPA. I feel that I am prepared for all things that may come my way, and will surely thank my parents for enrolling me in one of the best schools in the state.
