Brookfield Schools offter three schools.  Brookfield Acaddemy for students in grades 9-12, Brookfield Elemetary for Students K-8 and our Transition to College program for juniors and seniors.  The focus is on students who are experiencing special emotional/behavioral issues that interfere with their learning in the regular public school system.
The educational component of Brookfield Schools is designed to provide an intensive and grade-level academic curriculum with a successful model for therapeutic health and socialization opportunities that promotes each student’s return to their original school district.
Our priority is to facilitate the learning process.
Additionally, we hope each Brookfield student will return to their district with an increased aware-ness of appropriate social behavior, greater self-esteem, and more positive social interactions.
