LearnBoost welcomes Brooks Elementary School
Brooks High School is a public high school (grades 7-12) located in Killen, Alabama. It is one of eleven public schools in the Lauderdale County, AL School District. The school is located approximately 10 miles east of Lauderdale County seat Florence, AL.
The first Killen school was built in 1908 on what is now Jones Avenue and was moved to the present site of Brooks Elementary School in 1935. The tradition of Brooks High School began with the 1968-1969 school year. At the beginning of that first school year, Brooks had an enrollment of 325 students in grades seven through ten. The school has grown to its current size of 780 students in grades seven through twelve. The tradition remains the same. Academic excellence, the desire to win, and the pride in our school and community has endured the test of time.
The Brooks High School band, nicknamed the Pride of the South, is currently under the direction of Daniel Seay. The band, which consists of 8th through 12th grades, consistently wins superior ratings at marching competitions. They also recently received straight superior ratings at the Alabama MPA competition for the third year in a row, tying the current school record.
