Mountain Brook Junior High School is a large public school serving 1130 students in grades seven through nine. Due to the high level of educational attainment among the parents in the community, virtually every student in the school system has aspirations of attending a college or university upon completion of his or her K-12 experience. These aspirations are usually fulfilled since, on an annual basis, 97%-99% of the graduating Mountain Brook Schools seniors go on to further their education. Through the multiple clubs and organization sponsored by the school, students provide numerous hours of volunteer service as a means of giving back to the community and to build a foundation of life-long philanthropy. The faculty and staff have pledged to inspire academic and personal excellence and responsibility, foster growth and self-confidence, appreciate individuality, broaden perspectives, and promote service and honor. These ideals are promoted through innovative instructional practices, extracurricular experiences, and positive relationships among students, staff, parents, and the community. The school offers 12 advanced level courses to prepare students for AP courses at the high school and offers AP Human Geography to ninth grade students. The daily schedule at Mountain Brook Junior High provides time in the academic day for students to have access to teachers for additional support, to participate in a larger variety of elective opportunities, and the opportunity to go deeper with learned concepts in the classroom. Students at Mountain Brook Junior High receive a well-rounded education that prepares them for their future.
