  • As a former student, I don't not regret going to Brack. The teachers are willing to help any student graduate and proceed to the next level of education. There is not one person staffed that does not care about the well being of the students. If anything some of the teachers and coaches care too much. The athletic program is the schools pride and joy, sending student athletes on the the next level of competition. The coaches are very well prepared for any challenges handed to them to turn a decent athlete to a great person. Final word going to the number of students Brack sends to a prestigious University every year. The number of graduation seniors that attend college or a university is one of the highest in the city of San Antonio.
