Brookville is really great in terms of acceptance and peer interaction. Students are really nice to all others, even those in different cliques. The problem lies in the academics and arts program though. The teachers are decent, but the offering of higher level courses leaves much to desire. It's the typical set the standard to the dumbest kid in the room type setting. Sports are pretty good here though. The drama department, though loving, fun, and developing still needs much to work on, and the band, though full of talent, also is only okay. The choir program is in really good shape though. Overall Brookville is a decent school.
I am a Junior at Brookville. I transferred here from JF. Brookville has become a safe-haven and are far more accepting of you as an individual, unlike JF, Brookville is like one big family, they all care about one another and are truly helpful in helping someone succeed. Brookville provides excellent academics, extracurriculars, and sports teams. I strongly suggest sending your children here. It is a safe and drug-free environment. As for other schools on this matter....im not guaranteeing anything.
When you walk into Brookville you feel very welcomed. Teachers smile and say hello even if they don't know you. Students are very friendly and are willing to help anyone in need. The sports are wonderful and have a winning reputation. The band and music programs are very focused and excel. There are clubs for everything!! Bible club, FCA, FFA, Anime, Drama, Spanish, Key club. Brookville is a wonderful place to be.
I think the availability of music art & sport & other extra curricular activities is outstanding as well as the parent involvement and the cooperation with the teachers is great. The quality of teachers is the best!
