From the Superintendent's Office

  • Greetings, Dicky Barlow

    Welcome back to school!  We hope that you and your family had a wonderful summer. 

    Our summers at Mountain Brook Schools are always busy and eventful, and the one just passed was no exception.  Our teachers and staff were involved in professional learning through conferences and workshops, our own Mountain Brook Learning Conference, new teacher orientation, and customized professional development opportunities designed by teachers. The maintenance and facilities staff was busy preparing our buildings and grounds, while the technology staff was equipping schools with new and improved technology. 

    We are particularly excited about a major new project. We have provided high school students a technology bundle, which includes a Dell Chromebook companion device. This initiative was made possible by a partnership of Mountain Brook Schools, the Mountain Brook Schools Foundation, and our parents.

    It is an exciting time to be a part of Mountain Brook Schools.  I encourage you to take the opportunity to get involved in your local schools through PTO, Mountain Brook City Schools Foundation, Mountain Brook Sports Corporation, and the wide range of extra-curricular activities in our schools.

    We are proud of our students, parents, school system, and community.  Thank you for helping making Mountain Brook Schools great.  I look forward to seeing you around our schools and the great city of Mountain Brook.
