I am proud to have gone to a school that provides the only vocational training the Morgan County School System. Brewer students have the opportunity to participate in 13 career tech programs, and BHS students frequently place in the top three at skills competitions in activities ranging from health occupations to welding. I did not participate in the Honors curriculum at Brewer, but I went on to be accepted at the University of North Alabama (on an academic scholarship), into the Honors Program, based upon my grades at Brewer. I do not feel that Brewer did not prepare me for college; however, I do have friends that graduated from BHS and went on to other schools that did feel that they were not prepared for their collegiate math courses. In football we did well to win two games a season, in soccer our boys were a part of the Elite Eight each year, and in basketball both teams went to the semi-finals every year. Last year, our varsity girls' team won the championship! The band has the most trophies in the school, and is the highlight of the pep rallies. Brewer was a good school for me, and I enjoyed my time there. For many students, it is a home and a tight-knit community.

I have found that A.P.Brewer High school is very lacking in the adminastrative end. The teachers are fair. But, What really excites me about Brewer High is the Career Tech programs that they offer. They are the best in the state. Discipline needs to be more agressive and more parent involvement
My son is a senior this year. He has really enjoyed his years at BHS. I think the technical program has really helped him decide on a career.
I attended BHS and as a student I was proud of my school. For what reason I still don't know. If it weren't for the dedicated coaching staff there wouldn't be sports at BHS. A majority of the sports don't have the necessary equipment. After graduating BHS I went to UA and was shocked at the difference between my education and my peers'. Brewer doesn't prep their students for college what-so-ever. It's basically all about graduating. I loved Brewer and I will cherish my memories but the school definitely needs renovation in the administration department.
I just want to tell you how proud I am of the great concern this school has for the students you have. All through my sons life he has gone to a private Christian school and I was so worried about public school, this school has truly put calm in my life! Thank you so much from a mom who truly means Thanks! Stacy Pegram
I went to Brewer and was proud of it. Until I sent my child. In one of your reviews someone wrote how they didn't care about the students. The principal does not have a hand on that school. For my childs safety I had to remove him. Now I can't get him in any morgan county school because I live in Brewers district. We need to do something FAST !
I personally think that Brewer is a very fine school.The facilities and teachers are wonderful (for the most part) and the other students are very welcoming. Brewer does have alot to offer for automotive but it also has alot to offer in other departments. I would recomend BHS to anyone and everyone.I even hope for my children to go here when they hit there high school years because they will learn and have fun.
The difficulty of the classes is very low. I graduated from Brewer two years ago and NEVER found myself to be challenged. I am not overly intelligent. I am a sophomore in college and in remedial math. The lack of art programs is disturbing. One art class is offered for one semester only. Although the teacher is very good, he could do better with some more advanced classes to teach. If you are looking for a high school with a good automotive and air conditioning technology program, Brewer is the place for you. The students are kind to one another and even 'uncool' kids can find and make friends easily.
I am a former member of BHS, and while I was there, I found the staff (principles) to be too concerned about what the students were wearing instead of what was going on with the students. Overall, the school was clean, nice campus, wonderful teachers...but if you want your children to go to a school where the principles care about THEM more than the clothes they wear, go somewhere else. I was sent home 3 days before graduation because my pants were too tight? How are jeans too tight? Just an example for you. The school itself is wonderful, as I've said, but the school board needs to find new principles. People who will care about the students.
I actually happen to be a student at BHS and find the facility to be kept uniquely clean, best as to be expected with 1000 teenagers running around. The teacher with the exception of a couple of course to be outstanding. The academics at BHS are definitely not the hardest, but it's all in the course you plan to take, if you want harder then they are indeed available, I speak from the Honors diploma with A.P. classes. I'm fairly sure remedial math won't be necessary if you graduate with an A average in one of those. Football support could be improved =/ and We're dang sure gonna try. As far as the overall school is concerned, It's extremely satisfactory, We're not Hartselle or Decatur and have an entire city funding us, but with what we have, we do extremely well.
Teachers overall mediocre. Administration HORRIBLE. Athletis fair. Coaching .... not good.
The students, teachers, and leadership overall at Brewer High School are good people. The academics are horrible. You can graduate from Brewer with an 'A' average and be required to take remedial math at UAB. Although support for the football team has improved with the new coach, overall support for the team in the past is terrible compared to schools like Hewitt, Clay, Decatur, Hartselle and other 5A-6A schools. If football and math scores are important to you, Go elsewhere.
This school is about the best around as for everything it has to offer the students. I mean kids from all around come here for all of the classes it offers and it's clean. thanks
This is an extremely nasty school and the teachers are horrid. The only good thing about this school is the new football coach Billy Coleman.
