Amount of homework: Just right
July 16, 2015
There was one class where the teacher was using a project based curriculum which resulted in excessive amounts of homework. However, after concerned were raised, this was corrected. Other than one issue, the amount of homework has been appropriate to the rigor of the curriculum.

Some of the program leaders encourage students to volunteer their time to give back to the community. The program my child is part of mandates community service.

I think it depends upon which programs your child participates and the company your child keeps. Fortunately we have not had any issues arise because she has made wise choices..

So far we have been generally pleased with the school, our child had some amazing teachers this past year. The marching band program is terrific, there are plenty of quality organizations and programs to choose from at this high school. The historic campus is really cool, has the look of a college campus.

Teacher effectiveness: Very effective
July 14, 2015
We thought most of the teachers our child had were very effective. I do think some were better than others with regards to communication, but over all the teachers did a really good job.

I was a bit uneasy about changing schools from Concord High to A.L. Brown High, after hearing negative reviews about it. After I enrolled, I was very impressed of the school's academics, and extra-curricular activities. Students here are very persistent on learning, and test scores prove it! With a new principal, obligatory dress code, and many new students/staff from different parts of the states, A.L. Brown definitely has became an excellent school.

A.L. Brown High School has truly became a great school since our current principal moved here. Mrs. Bartles has done an excellent job and I hope she never leaves! A.L. Brown High School = Best High School in the country.
