Brewer High School is a community-based school with a rich and proud academic heritage. While offering a challenging variety of classes on campus at the college prep, honors, and Advanced Placement level, Brewer High School also makes available to students the opportunity to pursue off campus learning through agreements with the University of Maine, Husson University, Eastern Maine Community College, and the United Technologies Center. Additionally, guidance internships are available in cooperation with local businesses. The Jobs for Maine’s Graduates (JMG) program in partnership with Brewer High School offers students the opportunity to receive guidance in choosing the right path toward continued education, a meaningful career, and productive life skills.
With the implementation of an A/B block schedule, the focus on results-based instruction has never been higher. Our staff is committed to providing a rigorous and relevant curriculum to our students. When making decisions that impact our school, the two questions we constantly ask ourselves are, “How will this impact the instructional process?” and “Will this provide our students a greater chance at being successful?” Additionally, the freshmen program is a commitment we have made to insure that our 9th graders have an optimal opportunity to achieve success in their first year of high school.
The most up to date research clearly shows that students involved in extra-curricular activities have higher academic achievement than those who are not involved. To that end, we are proud at Brewer High to provide an extensive variety of athletics, clubs, activities, and music programs. It is our hope that students will utilize these opportunities in order to make their high school careers multi – dimensional and fulfilling.
It is our desire at Brewer High School to prepare our students for success in the post-secondary opportunities of their choosing. Whether that opportunity is through continued education, military service, or joining the work force, Brewer High graduates and their parents can be assured of a quality, first class education that will accompany students long after they have left and provide the ground work for a successful life.
