Mt. Brook High School Reviews

I would be lying if I said that the education I was getting was anything less than exceptional. However, the social pressure and tension at this school create a very exclusive environment. For example, it seems like if you don't make the right friends in kindergarten then you have screwed yourself over socially until you graduate from high school. If you are not already friends with a group of people, it is impossible to become friends with them no matter what you do. Yes, there are many people who are friendly, however, it never goes beyond a hallway acquaintance. Overall, it is very easy to feel like an outsider if you are a first generation student at this school.

Most teachers at my school are very knowledgeable and act professionally and are very personable, thus making it easier to talk to them and go to them for help. There are a few exceptions to this. I have encountered a couple teachers who feel threatened and/or insulted when you propose your own ideas or say that you don't understand the subject matter because of how they are explaining it or that you are confused. Granted, this has happened very few times, however, it HAS happened. Overall, the teachers at my school are respectful of my time inside and out of the classroom and are willing to work with me when I need help.
Mountain Brook High School is a great High School which offers outstanding education and the best teachers who give endless opportunities to their students in order for them to succeed.
