While it gave me the opportunities I needed to get into a good college, I did not feel prepared for the cultural diversity of a mid-sized city. The predominantly white-Jewish body of students was, like any large homogenous group, subject to exclusion and prejudice. I witnessed and silently participated in racism, classism, and bullying. The teachers were, for the most part, great. I also made several lasting friendships.
First off - it's cliques not cliches and every school has them. Second, I barely passed and yet received a good education. You'll feel sorry for anyone that never had the opportunity to go to a solid public school like this. Last, the teachers need an attitude adjustment. They're okay, but they're just not that great. They rest on their laurels. They are sarcastic and caustic most of the time.
Not a great school. Some of the teachers are not reliable, students have own 'cliches'. My daughter hates it. No after school programs.
I went to Blind Brook and had a great experience, the teachers were world class
Blind Brook and the entire district is exceptional... it is one of the top school districts in the area and anyone whom is lucky enough to attend this amazing school will take with them a life time of intellect and achievement. It prepares you for life and all aspects.... it is truly the greatest educational system and I would beyond highly recommend this district to all families! BG .. alumni
