I really like this school because as a student you really can learn here. The staff at Brewbaker really prepares you for the world ahead. I recommend any parent to send the child or children to Brewbaker. They prepare you for the next grade ahead before time and I think that's just wonderful. Thanks for teaching and preparing me for the future!

This is a good school but stricted. Most parents wouldnt agree but they do. Im in the 7th grade and this is my first week there and I like it but its just to strict. They should make not little changes but a lot. Every corner you turn you see the police. I dont think that the 7th graders shouldnt have to suffer what the 8th and 9th graders did. So Im saying that school needs to change quick.

this school obviously cares about nobody and don't care if they make it to the next grade. dress code it too strict. we can only wear white shirt khaki pants black shoes and black belt. can't wear jackets with designs or logos on them. jackets have to be solid white,black,navy,or gray. really boring school and has to many projects.

i must say that my three years at brewbaker were quite great in fact. you know people are so quick to look at what is wring with brewbaker, how about looking at what is going write with school. half the 9th grade class this year graduated with honors this year. our band is always on top , and our football and basketball teams have both made it to the championship games. we are smart group of kids at brewbaker, but when you push us toward the bnad we cant move toward the good so whats the proble with that

I'm new to the area and I must say I am greatly disappointed in the school system in Montgomery. Alabama step up! What is being taught is at least a year behind.

I attended Brewbaker Jr. High from 1994 to 1997. Hopefully it's changed for the better. I had several amazing teachers, and several horrendous ones. Honors English was an excellent course, but Brewbaker was in great need of offering other honors courses, such as honors history and honors science. My ninth grade science teacher was a last minute replacement, and for the whole of the school year all we ever did was play mindless games with dilapidated instructional material. On the other hand, Brewbaker had a great band. I played flute for two years, and the conductor was very knowledgeable and intelligent.
