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 schools are by far the best. Even though parents are very involved, the facilities are great, it's the teachers that set Mountain Brook apart from everyone else. These teachers expect the best from us. They care how we are learning. I remember my first day of 10th grade year. The counselors met us at the front door and said "welcome to college". The school gives the students a large frame of freedom. At first I really questioned this approach but now I realize this freedom allows us to make more of our own decisions.
