    Overall Experience: Although the academics are outstanding they are way too strict on their rules and disciplinary actions. I think that is one thing most students would agree on, at least the ones I know. Some teachers hand out detentions way too loosely and the administrators are quick to give administrative detentions/ISS.

    Teachers: The majority of teachers at Brookwood are excellent at what they do. They are engaging, intellectual, and very enthusiastic about their subjects. Coming to them for help has never been a problem for me. There are only a couple, usually the newer ones, that have a negative impact on their students.

    Overall Experience: I would definitely choose Brookwood again if I had the chance to do it all over because I think that the academic and social dynamics together form an environment that makes students want to achieve great things and encourages them to work hard for their goals. The advanced academics allows students to reach their highest potential in their classes while the social dynamics enforce the ideas of academics and work ethic in an appealing way to the teenage students.

    Teachers: The majority of teachers at Brookwood go above and beyond to ensure that their students get the best possible teaching that they can offer. They take pride in the school's reputation of achievement and work hard to help the students maintain it.
