West Brook Senior High School Reviews

My favorite part about school is our school spirit. I'm on the schools drill team and that's only one organization that loves and supports our school. I love going online after a football game (the season that is the most spirited) and seeing all the love and support no matter the outcome of the game. At the games we have a huge student section and they do such a great job of pumping up everyone!
West Brook Senior High School is a mix of different personalities and races. My overall experience with this school has been fairly well although I do find the school to be over crowded. I tend to describe West Brook High School to be a lot like a zoo. Sometimes it can be rather difficult to learn in extremely dense classrooms filled with about 35 or more bodies. Despite this issue with the school, I must say that West Brook High School is the best public high school in Beaumont.
It is an okay school to go to. Though I wish the education was better and they had more options in courses we could take. Some teachers give up on trying to teach their students. They either make it ridiculous hard and expect them to know it or just give the students grades. The teachers that are willing to teach do what they can to help the students understand the subjects being taught. Also, being able to earn more college hours by taking dual credit would have been helpful. A larger variety of dual credit could have helped many college bound students like me.
