The Brook Hill School Reviews
Rating 4.48 out of 5 94 reviews
A decent school with kind teachers and abundant activities. I met tons of interesting people here on campus. I felt safe and protected in the school because they do have lots of cameras, more than anyone can imagine. The school does care about academics and sports, but I think they need to focus more on the fine arts departments as they do not have as many resources compared to other departments. In addition, I felt like the school is quite conservative on certain issues, probably due to its location and religious inclination. If you have a strong opinion on certain things that we concerned about a lot these days, please make sure that you agree with the school principles beforehand or you might feel a little bit compressed and kind of like an outsider in the school.
The memories and friendships that I made at this school are unmatched by any environment I have been in before. The boarding community has offered so much to my life and I am so grateful for the experiences that I have had while at Brook Hill. I am so thankful for my teachers and the staff at Brook Hill. My boarding family Scott and Jaiha Wilson have contributed so much to my life and my experience at Brook Hill. Alongside Ashley Bouwer for her help and aid in my college search. She helped me more than I could have imagined and I really cannot thank her enough. The Brook Hill School has its ups and downs just like every other school, but at the end of the day, there is no place I would have rather spent my last 4 years of high school at.
I love the people here for sure and come on, can you find another school that has an entire museum on campus and helicopters and tons of cool stuffs. My teachers are super awesome too! Definitely recommend taking Dr. Gardner, Dr. Lee, Mr. Travis, Mr. Bunger and Mrs. McEuen!! Thank you for my great high school memories and prepare me for college
I came to Brook Hill as an International student in 11th grade. Before I deceived on brook hill, I debated whether or not to attend another school instead. I am so, so glad i chose Brook Hill. The staff at Brook Hill is so caring and involved, and the students are lovely. It’s not a huge school, so i never felt like just a number in the school’s population. The boarding houses are cozy and comfortable, and the emphasis on Christ here is unreal. I loved my time here.
I have been in Brook Hill since tenth grade and I would say the thing I've enjoyed most s the boarding program. There are very good boarding parents. Aside from that I feel like the small class sizes help you to get a more personalized learning experience. It is very easy to get closer to the adults here.
The experience is phenomenal! Coming from Europe Brook Hill truly made me feel like I am in a second family. The faculty and staff are top notch, the athletics are phenomenal especially since we get players from variety of countries and the living conditions are exceptional! A truly blessed school and I couldn’t ask for more! It is easy to find friends and have relationships that will last for years.
The Brook Hill School has been a home to me for the last 2 years. As a boarding student, it was a great experience. I met some of my best friends and was able to learn about so many different cultures.
I am very grateful to BH for giving my daughter two years of high school experience. The strict rules of the school have helped her develop rigorous habits and constantly improve her academic performance, especially in mathematics, physics and English. We are very proud of BH for being admitted by her dream school.
I toured many schools before choosing Brook Hill and had over 30 questions written on a wide variety of topics. The admissions staff at Brook Hill was honest and open on their strengths and weaknesses which I appreciated. I wanted transparency and that's exactly what I got during our tour. I was nervous about the transition from public to private school for our son but Brook Hill has made it easy to adapt. The culture of Brook Hill truly feels like a family. Faculty and staff are always welcoming and friendly to parents and every time I walk in the doors I see several smiling faces. The best part is watching our son grow and mature through Brook Hill. He talks openly about Jesus and we have several in-depth conversations about Christianity. Choosing Brook Hill was the best decision we have made for our family.
I find it hard to find the words to express our sincere gratitude to The Brook Hill School. For the past six years my husband and I have watched our two daughters mature into leaders in the classroom, exhibit Christ like character in and out of our home, and take charge of their own academic achievements. I admire how The Brook Hill School has sought out each of our daughters' God given gifts and incorporated them in their daily activities. Not only has each teacher loved, encouraged, and challenged our children, but has designed their teaching to be exciting and innovative while reaching the needs of each student. From academics, to athletics, to fine arts, to STEM, there is no area that The Brook Hill School is lacking. The Brook Hill School is more than just a building where we send our children everyday. We are a family, and one that my family is proud to be a part of .
The staff and students are above average. The culture is very accepting of new students. As a new parent, I was overwhelmed at the number of parents that welcomed us. You feel like the other parents/ students want your child to succeed as well.
This is our 11th year at Brook Hill. From Kinder to 10th grade, not a day has passed where I felt apprehensive about leaving my babies.
The Brook Hill School lives up to its mission of providing students with a Christian and college-preparatory education. Brook Hill offers a wide range of classes, clubs, and sports while offering small class sizes and direct access to and learning opportunities at the American Freedom Museum on its campus. The family atmosphere and comradery of staff, students, and their families is unparalleled. The international boarding program provides diversity not otherwise seen in East Texas and exposes day students to a diverse cultural experience. The facilities on Brook Hill's sprawling campus rival those of top private schools around the country. Brook Hill's energetic and supportive culture is contagious. Students leave prepared not only for college but for challenges of the world.
As a teacher, I love the diversity in the classroom that the boarding program brings. Our students not only get to compete with students from other countires, but they get to learn about other ciltures, therefore letting them see the importance of an excellent work ethic. I work with a staff of intellectual individuals, but it's wonderful to know that we all share a similar belief system, rooted in Christ and His Word. My children are enrolled in classes that are challenging and stimulating. They will be prepared for college and that is why we chose The Brook Hill School over the other schools in the East Texas area.
I have worked at Brook Hill for 5 years now and I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else! The atmosphere is like no other.
As a parent of three Brook Hill graduates and a teacher there as well, I can’t recommend this school any more highly than to say how incredible it is on every level. Teacher are supported, students are loved, and all are welcome!
The Brook Hill School is what it says it is! My favorite thing about being apart of the BH family is that no matter what, Christ Centered is always the main priority. BH believes in itself and its own mission, the same way that they believe in their students and staff!
