Mountain Brook City Schools Reviews

2 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
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.
