This school is disgusting and the staff is only focused on sports. SATs and ACTs are not stressed at all and a horrific education is provided for any student's future. Most teachers are lazy and only care about their pay checks.

This school has given me ups and downs, but hands down the best four years of my life. It's conditions are slowly improving. The teachers are great and I feel comfortable going to any teacher if an issues arises. BUT, the guidance department is so screwed up when it comes to college and deadlines, so if you have a deadline to meet, get everything done early!

This school is a nightmare for any student that needs help even if just ADD. There are no supportive services and they'd rather place them in lower level classes than provide assistance or resources as they cost money. There is little communication and, as another pointed out, they often accuse students w/o knowing facts & are more interested in discipline than education. They do refer to psyciatrists looking for a mental or behavioral disorder when the student does not excel or when they act out. This is inappropiate in most cases as all evaluations are already done if a child has IEP and if they have not seen a psychiatrist yet then it has already been determined (by doctors) that a mental or behavioral issue is not a concern. When students have academic issues that turn behavioral it is often due to lack of resources and frustration. If your child attends here, consider what they tell you rather than believing in the school like I did. I believed they were going to help and constantly accused my child of being lazy and negitive. Students are humilliated when child study teams come into the classroom and make it known that a student is being called out for testing, etc .

School is horrid for special needs students. The ineffectiveness and lack of caring and compassion of the special education teachers contributed to the systematic bullying of my son over a period of 1.5 years. When my son finally snapped because no one noticed his behavioral changes or mood after the bullying incidents and he made inappropriate comments because he has low frustration tolerance, they punished him and made him see a psychiatrist. Stay away if you have special needs child......request out of district placement.

The school setting at Brick, contrary to popular belief by the student body, has started to improve. The bathrooms are cleaner, there are fewer garbage cans in the halls to collect the ceiling leaks, and improvements have been made to the ventilation system. Also, the teachers show compassion and care about teaching, in general. I have had very few teachers who didn't personally care about the success of their students. This extends to help after class, or after school. Almost any teacher would stay after school to help a pupil in need, given that the student asks for it. For the few teachers that do not fall into this category, I believe that a few teachers like that exist in any school. However, most teachers care deeply about their students.

This school is ok. The teachers aren't good, they don't teach well for the students or care for them at all. I wrestle for the school and the school has barley any money but when we do it goes to football. I think we need to have more money towards all the sports equally, and band. Well for band if you don't like it, don't join.

i am a student at bths and it is my beleif that the school is to harsh and judgmental towards students that they believe to be (not normal like every one else) i use those words in a bad form because that is the way that they have been used towards me on several times. i also believe that some teachers are unfit to work in the school setting because they do NOT understand that all students have a different way of learning that the teacher must adapt to in order to give the students the education that they rightfully deserve.

My daughter is a senior a Brick High School. She has had excellent Advance Placement teachers but the guidance department is surely lacking. She only sees her counselor once a year to schedule classes for the following year. Little counseling is provided for career interests. Also the school is lacking in the extracurricular area. Unless a student is sports orientated, he/she has little if no clubs or organizations to join. When the school budget was not passed the few clubs of this type were dissolved. However, little if no cuts were made to the sports programs. The Administration is more concerned with random drug testing. There are many other issues that need to be addressed including the prejudices against minority students, the large number of alternate route teachers in the Math Department and the serious lack of communication between the student body and the admainistrative staff.

My oldest daughter graduated in June of this year 05. I felt that her years at BTHS were happy because of the faculty and staff. She joined Student Government & participated in any activities that she had time for (Chorus & School Plays). The teachers that are involved in these two activites are great my daughter loved them. My daughter was an average student, I felt she did well. I still have a daughter at BTHS who is in all honors classes & has joined the cheering squad. I feel that I have seen many aspects of this school and it's administration it has been very positivie for me as a parent and rewarding for my children.

I once thought of Brick school system as a very good one until my children have gone thru it. It is very distressing. I have both an above average child and a border line child. They have failed on both! The arts are none existing, 60-90 people at a drama show, no teacher participation or rally for the school. We the parents need to be more involved and hold our school system accountable!

The school needs more room,children need gym lockers, the principlals & guidance need to learn how to communicate to each other before accusing children. The school needs to know facts about childrens needs. The teachers are wonderful.

I'm a graduate of BTHS and believe that it is a great base for obtaining knowledge. Currently I am in graduate school and think fondly of the faculty that helped me get my start. The extracurricular organizations have real potential given the right students and the academic classes are thorough. It, like all schools, has its flaws. For instance, the football team/band rivalry has been going on for years; time to move on. There is a lack of budget and the administrators make due with the funds they have. There is a lack of discipline but it helps to create independence. All in all, it is a great school, with great learning experiences, and great faculty who truly care about the students. My advice to parents; combine home efforts with gains made at the school and your child will succeed.

I am a student at BTHS, and I agree with these people. The school idolizes the football players. Our band, which I participate in, has not been sucessful since the 2000 season, and that's a shame. The school is a mess. A lot of the teachers do not really care about the students at all, and have very poor teaching skills. In BTHS, we are allowed to get away with wearing anything, for the lack of reinforcement to the dress code. But since we have no budget we really can't do anything about it. The new idea is to start not having after school buses, and to start charging to play sports. We have an incredible lack of funding, and it shows. This school is a terrible learning environment, and I feel uneducated just going there. BTHS is a terrible school.

This school appeals to the middle and lower students academically. The higher students like honor students and such must cnform their schedule to the other students. This is not fair. This school also concentrate too much on the football team. Recently, the school obtained a new weight lifting room for the football team. The school could hav used this new space for a much needed computer lab. This is very upseting.

BTHS is a good school. The 2 main problems are to much emphasis on football and not enough on academics. Their honors programs are very good, though. Also, they need to enforce the dress code. Parking is almost non existing.

I believe there is a real effort by the principal and some of his vice principals to improve the atmosphere, which I think will inprove the education process. The Board of Education has to get more involved in finding out what is causing the moral problems so evident in our schools and start listening to the teachers who after all are the one's who doing the teaching and I believe can contribute much to inproving the programs which our children learn from.

The school needs to stop stressing football so much and start stressing the arts. For a school of its size to only have 64 playing band members is a disgrace.

They concentrate too much energy on the wrong students. Disciplinary The problems in BTHS are hidden, but to those who struggle with them everyday, they are as apparent as ever.
