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
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
