I am a parent. My son is now attending Brew Tech for a second year. He is now entering the 10th grade. I must say, I love this school. The school has a very diverse population of students. The teachers and the basketball coaches are wonderful. I am also very pleased with the wide variety of career academies that are offered. The principal Mrs. LEE is awesome! She is very accessible . She attends the majority of the basketball games. Mrs. Lee is very understandable, considerate, very professional, but still firm when need. I could not ask for a better principal. If you are looking for a good magnet school, I would highly suggest this one! My son loves it as well as myself.

Rated one of the best High Schools not only in the state but in the Nation, this school focuses on preparing students for the work they see in college. It is not an easy school, but the preparation they have for the next level exceeds that given by all but two other public schools (also magnets) and many of the private schools in the area. I would recommend this school to any parent wishing their child a top notch education, but be prepared they will have to earn it here.

I attended Brew Tech for the first half of my freshman year. I really did not like most of the teachers and the students were not very nice. I wish that I had gone to LAMP instead because it has great academics and lots of clubs.

Brew Tech has some much to offer kids today. I just wish I/we have a school like Brew Tech back in the days.....

Brewtech is a pretty cool school. The teacher's like to treat you like adults as much as possible which really helps us as students achieve our fullest potential.

As a parent, I've been completely satisfied -- no, totally impressed with the quality of instruction and student life at BrewTech!

I graduated in 2004 and I can honestly say this is by far one of the best times in my life so far. The teachers care about the success of all their students not only in the classroom, but success in life as well. I was like a sponge in class trying to gain as much knowledge and guidance as humanly possible. BrewTech taught me a lot about myself as a person and it will continue to teach future students as time progresses forward.

I am a proud parent of a BrewTech student and I know that this is one of the best schools in Alabama. I believe that this school is really preparing our students for life after High School. We have a very dedicated staff and faculty. At this time there is a great need for a gymnasium at our school and we are trying to fill that need. I understand that this will make it possible for the school to no longer have to bus our students off campus to other facilities twice a week for P.E. It will also enable us to hold more functions on campus such as dances, graduations, student assemblies and other means of fundraisers to help better our school. When you have a wonderful teaching staff and faculty working so hard for a common goal, I know we will become the best that Alabama has to offer!

I graduated from BrewTech in 05. I went through the entire program starting in the 9th grade. Leaving regular schools and attending BrewTech was by far one of the best decisions I ve made. I would strongly encourage anyone who is considering this school for themselves or their child to take a tour and see just how great this school is. The teachers at BrewTech are one of a kind and helped me while a student there and even after my graduation. I know that I was well prepared for college because the transition was very smooth. Because BrewTech laid the foundation for me to better myself through education I have had many opportunities that I d otherwise not been given. To go along with the educational opportunities are also many sports and clubs to take part in to help enhance the learning experience. I would do it all over again with pleasure.

I am a parent of a student (a Junior as of Oct '05). The kids here are definitely kept busy. There are teachers that really and truly care about their students. A couple of them even took my child under their wing and said 'ok, this is what you need to do in order to get scholarships'...and have set him up to participate in all of the activities that he can stand :)...Engineering, building robots, Computer Aided Drafting. All of the staff: front office, counseling, and teachers are outstanding. Programs are great. Students attend in block schedule (like a college), and take course work toward their academy (E-commerce, Medical, Engineering, building sciences, college prep, or IT), so that they are ready to enter the work force, or are truly prepared for college when they graduate.

I am currently a student at Brew Tech and I think it is a great school. Everyone here is really friendly and welcoming. (teachers and students) There are lots of extracurricular activities like volleyball,basketball,cheerleading,track,soccer, etc...something for everyone. Also, the work is really easy if you pay attention in class. This school has great academies including graphic design, information technology, medical and ecommerce. I would definately recommend this school because its fun, educational, and a lot of freedom!
