    Overall Experience: The SWS (School within a school) program is the most important aspect of Brookline High School. It is a revolutionary democratic learning community founded in the 1960's. The generally high powered, influential student body is taught the values of social justice and democracy in a supportive and intellectually challenging environment.

    Teachers: Very well educated teachers work extremely hard to teach students both curriculum material and life skills. As class size increases, personal attention decreases, but nearly every teacher will sacrifice their own time to meet with, and help students.

    Resources & Facilities: There are numerous support systems for a wide range of students. Parents push students and administrators to perform to the best of their abilities. There are numerous laptop carts available to students and teachers featuring brand new technology. Smart boards are scattered about, and nearly every classroom has a projector and a sound system.

    Health & Safety: The nurses are helpful but busy. They are unable to give much support in terms of medication.

    Administration & Policies: Guidance counselors are often busy and rarely have time for the students. The secretaries to the deans and guidance counselors, however, are phenomenal, and makeup for the lack of student attention.
