Steven Hovis, Brookland High School Principal said that they're on the right track at getting students prepared for the future.
The school has been in the higher ranks because they have passionate teachers who want the students to not only learn the information, but know the information.
"Depending on how teachers present the information and talk about it, sometimes that can make it easier for the students," said Rick Robertson, Brookland Science Teacher.
Senior Ryan Childres said that he enjoys knowing that he has his teachers to turn to if he's having a problem.
"They're very easy to talk to and you can go to them and they'll tutor you if you need it," he said.
Robertson said that as a math teacher he was pleased with the State of the Union message and is a strong advocate of challenging his students daily.
