This school is amazing, I have only been here for a few months and already love it!The curriculum is above mist schools, an average 8th grader would already be working on 9th grade work!As a student I know how important education is for my career, coming to this school I am guaranteed to be prepared for high school! I am so glad I have this amazing opportunity!

The one thing that I love about this school is the subjects because the subjects that I do here are fun and easy and a little challenging but that's fine with me.I also like the teachers there too they'er very kind and give help when needed.

I like how you can learn a grade higher than what you normally learn at your grade level. When you learn a grade above it is very challenging but I like it. The people at this school are very nice to me too and I like how they would want to be my friends. This is my favorite school out of all of the schools I have went to. I would recommend this school to anyone that likes being challenged and who like to have a lot of friends. I love this school a lot and it is really amazing to have an opportunity to go here. It is very worth it.

I love this school because i think that one on one student teacher connections help us learn better because then we can get to really understand what the topic in which we are learning is. With the small classes every one is friends here so we don't really have any problems with bullying. The education here is great we are learning about a year ahead most other public schools and if you are ahead the teachers will take the time to get you on a new course with harder work so every one here is challenged.

I have been at this school since pre-school (I'm in the middle school now), and I have learned many things here. from simple addition and reading to Cyber Security and Algebra. the school has a small number of students so the teachers are able to spend more time helping the students. the atmosphere at the school is almost never stressful, and everybody knows everybody. in total, I am sure that most children will benefit from this school.

I have been at this school for many years, and while I have been here I have seen this school grow greatly. Something I love about Brookfield is that they focus a lot on our learning and making sure that everyone is academically prepared for high school. Many students who graduate this school are put in to honors classes in high school and go far in college. Overall Brookfield is a great school and gives me a great opportunity to grow my learning, make new friends, and so much more.

As a Brookfield family starting in 2014, we have had such a great experience. The teachers our children have had at both the TLC Preschool Campus, as well as the main Elementary Campus have been the best. The smaller class sizes have provided more individualized attention, and our kids have absolutely flourished here. The academies are top notch. We love that music is integrated into the curriculum, and that art and physical education are also valued. My kids love that they get to eat outside in the fresh air when it's nice out, and that they have recess twice a day.

We have been at Brookfield School since Preschool as they have an early childhood campus that begins at 1 year of age. I have 2 kids both started in the Junior Kindergarten program and now are both in the elementary program and we plan to stay with Brookfield all the way through 8th Grade. My children read well beyond their years since they've been at Brookfield and they excel in Math & Science. They also love learning Chinese, Spanish & French along with Violin and Art. There is something for every student at Brookfield. Plus top notch security and a completely nut-free school. I highly recommend Brookfield School for the best in private education.

Brookfield offers an excellent, well-rounded, academic curriculum including art, music, and foreign languages. We really like the structure and accountability that is part of the Brookfield culture. Our daughter just started in the 2nd grade this year, and we are so pleased with the progress she has made in reading, spelling, and math in just the first few months. She has become so enthusiastic about reading, and that is exactly what we wanted! The assemblies, events, and other parent/PTA functions have been so welcoming to us as a new family. We highly recommend the Brookfield School!

I love teaching at Brookfield School. I have the ability to teach what my students need. Early Reading and Math fluency allows the student to use critical thinking skills, writing speaking skills in the classroom. I love teaching at Brookfield. My students and parents are wonderful.
