MBHS/MBJH are good schools for academics only. WARNING: if your kid is poor, LGBTQ, POC, or even remotely different, please do not send them here. This is not a safe space. Mountain brook students are infamous bigots. Most of the teachers are great, but the administrators have swept hate crimes under the rug for years, and do not plan on stopping. The fees for classes and other supplies always end up at $500-$1000, so even people who can afford the taxes often have to buy their supplies from somewhere else, even though many teachers will ridicule and judge students when they do not have the MB specific materials. Not to mention, one of my close friends, who was one of the only black girls at her elementary school, was pet by TEACHERS, who would make racist comments and encourage bullying. And thats just one of the examples. So, if you look at MB and see low diversity, theres a reason why: all birmingham POC families know to run like hell when Mountain Brook is mentioned. So be warned.

Mountain Brook High School is arguably one of the best high schools in Alabama. The curriculum is challenging and engaging and the teachers constantly push students to achieve their goals. However, with 97% percent of the school being Caucasian, Mountain Brook High School lacks quite a bit in the diversity spectrum. I would love to see an increase in the inclusion of many cultures and races in order to learn from different perspectives.
I lived in Mountain Brook my whole life and enjoyed my elementary school, but the Jr. High was not good... So moving from Jr. High to the high school was a big change but a good one. Everyone is great and wants you to succeed in life! One of the best high schools in the country!
