WH Brewster is a wonderful school. Sadly they face many challenges including language barriers and some parental apathy. I feel that they give 110% and really love the kids. My son is in Optional, Clue, and scored above average on all parts of the T-CAP in 3rd grade, and is well on his way to do just as well in the 4th grade. Overall the T-CAP scores for students at this school are low, but I feel that the school is not to blame because they constantly reach out to parents and encourage them to get involved. I am pleased with the school and don t have a single complaint despite what some people might think. I think some people are missing out on a diamond in the rough.
I had the misfortune of working at this horrible school for several years. The staff is top-notch, but the administration is the very worst sort you can have in Memphis. More concerned with appearances and reaching state-mandated test scores than education, every decision is made around making the administration look good rather than supporting the teachers. I would never send my child to this school despite the fact that there are many great teachers there. I hope and pray that every teacher there can find a job elsewhere. After 3 years of not reaching the required test-scores, there ins't a bright future for this school. Send your kids elsewhere if you can.
