Terrible. Uses the good old boy system. No leadership to be spoken of and some teachers use Masters Degrees from online non accredited schools.

My 14 yr old daughter transferred to this school mid-year. She went from an A student having never gotten into trouble before to D's and F's and being constantly in trouble with the school. The teachers and staff are great, but the majority of students are a bad influence. I believe that expectations of students are very low. I would not recommend this school.

Brindlee mountain school has exhibited excellent education and shown great endurance to overcome difficulties encountered with beginnings of a new school. The teachers, principals, and superintendent have given much to see our children succeed as seen with the awards to the scholars bowl team and the math team in their respective competitions. The athletic's is doing excellent job with winnings over that expected. Student body composed of some great kids, those to be proud of. Prefer this small school over any larger school in the county.

The teachers are great. They go the extra mile to make sure each child reaches their potential. They have an excellent music and band program.
