Last year (2004-2005) I was in 6th grade ,and now I am going to 7th grade.I was new at the school,but everyone made me feel comforable and fit in.The teachers are really nice and teach us students quality things.They have helped me in eery way that a human being could.When I had a problem in math Mrs. J. Hall was there to help me.Or when I had a problem in science Mrs.D. Anderson was there to help me.Also, when I had a problem in Language or with anything my teachers and friends were there for me.I'd recomend this school for anybody.It's one of the best I've been to!

This school is so spirited. The building there is 4 yrs. old and the first graduating class presented a gift to the school. They wrote an Alma mater and at a pep rally, they coppied and passed it out for the entire body to learn. It was wonderful. Brick Church also has an awesome Cheerleader and Pom Pon Squad.
