We love Brookfield! The kids are safe, the teachers are great and really get to know their students. We find it very easy to reach out to teachers and principals if an issue does come up and feel comfortable enough to have uncomfortable discussions. The curriculum is challenging but these kids always rise to the challenge and always have the support they need. We highly recommend this school!
