we thought most of our child's teachers were very effective. I would advise people to look past the overall school grade and take a closer look at this school. Our child has benefitted from some highly effective teachers.
overall I would say the amount of homework assigned has been appropriate. There have been one or two teachers who might have slightly pushed the envelope however our child learned better time management from the experience.
I can't comment with regards to the entire school, however my child is a member of the marching band proram. The director of this program works these students hard, but in doing so, he has helped to instill a work ethic with his students and demonstrated the relationship between hard work, preparation and success (excellence).
Our child has done pretty well academically so far, in my opinion there are some highly effective teachers at this high school. The arts programs at this school are outstanding and the school offers high quality options with regards to clubs and organizations.
A.L. Brown High School. the a really great school. although you gotta wear a full uniform and stuff. its still a great school and most of the students has sprit! i love this school and i wish i still went to it i am a senior now attending a school in chester va. its not a great school but ill mannage. i hope to return to A.L. Brown sometime during the 2009 year. A.L. BROWN HIGH SCHOOL IS DEFFENITLY ONE OF THE TOP SCHOOLS IN AMERICA
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 pride never goes away. I graduated in 2002. Sometimes I wish that I could go back to this school not to improve my grades becouse the teachers did a great job getting me where i am now. I have a great job in the Marine Corp, and have advanced in my m.o.s and rank many times. Becouse of the motavation that came with me from A.l. Brown high.
