General Brown Junior/Senior High School Reviews

42 reviews
All Categories
No one is really sure what the counseling department does and the rules are ridiculous and enforced sporadically. There’s a three minute time limit to use the bathroom and the school locks all but one of the bathrooms if someone gets caught vaping, which gets frustrating since only one person is allowed to sign out to the bathroom at a time. Bullying runs rampant, there’s been a fight every day this week, and the workload is so intense most of the senior class is having a breakdown. We apparently have a school psychologist no one’s heard about, which about sums up the school’s focus on mental health—appear to help but actually just ignore our problems. This website says AP offered, but it’s actually just AP Bio. Also, many staff members show blatant favoritism. Students aren’t given much guidance or choice in their academic plans. However, many teachers are great and a few are nothing short of inspirational and are way too good for this place.

My experience so far at General Brown has been an average one. I am a student that dables in almost everything that the school has to offer, but most of the things I do are under funded so we are not able to do some of the things we wish to do. The administrasion and teachers are great and are willing to go above and beyond to help students with anythiing they might need help with. I wish we had more technology and designing courses because as of right now we only have one that high schoolers can take.
Administration will make you lose your mind. General lack of interest in the academic success from the people in charge, but the teachers will cut off an arm if it’ll help you pass. Football is the school’s number one priority, then stopping drug use, then academics. 10/10 recommend being an athlete or one of the “smart kids” for the special treatment; you’ll get away with murder while other students are punished for being bullied. Be careful not to use the bathroom too often or the staff will harass you and assume you’re vaping. But hey, there’s a whole AP course and quite a few college classes you aren’t allowed to take until your senior year, and most of the teachers are fantastic and too good for this place.
