Brooks Academy of Science & Engineering, puts you on a supposed waiting list to gain entry into this supposedly awesome academy. If your looking for an awesome school, please do not go there. The commercials make it look beautiful, the kids look happy...when indeed they kids are miserable, the teachers suck, the administration, and office staff are LAZY. They act like they are the best place to be yet do not deliver on the education. Its a charter school that does not have a cafeteria. The have 88% of their school in portables... I would not recommend this school to my WORST ENEMY. Save yourself time, energy and save your child's education....DO NOT GO THERE. Get off the wait list ASAP..not worth it!!!

You're better off at Jubilee Academy. Much better school and staff.

I had the pleasure of sitting in on a BDA (Brooks Development Authority) meeting a couple of weeks ago. The Superintendent (I believe this was her position) of the school spoke in regard to the rapport that the Brooks Academy had with the BDA, considering that is where the school is located. She showed a slide show with all the school had to offer. It was nothing to boast about. There was nothing notated in regard to test scores and how they compare to the public schools; however, there was a lot of mention about their sports teams and how a softball player was selected to play at the national level and another athlete went on to represent the academy in Italy. I am sorry if that is what the educational institutions are about sports and athleticism, rather than excelling in subjects like Math and English. Unfortunately Texas is one of two states that does not follow core curriculum. Unfortunately Texas schools are academically behind, and test scores reflect as such. I would not sweat over Brooks Academy. I suggest a private institution, because most times you get what you pay for.
