New Student Registration

Greetings from Principal Wagner

  • Dear wonderful Brookside community,


    I am thrilled to return to the Ross Valley School District as the Principal of Brookside School. I am grateful to be joining this learning community because I know the Brookside team feels passionate about creating a positive learning environment where everyone belongs, feels valued and thrives academically, socially and emotionally. I look forward to partnering with our entire Brookside community this year to continue to bring the RVSD Racial Equity Mission Statement to fruition by grounding our work in equity, inclusion, and community building. It is going to be a wonderful year!


    In Community,


    Amanda Wagner

Welcome to Brookside

  • On any given day at Brookside, you will find students learning through math games with partners, sharing their opinions about characters while citing text evidence to support their thinking or using inquiry to develop ideas about scientific exploration.  Classrooms include sensory tools and flexible seating to support a range of learning styles. Teachers consider all modalities when designing instruction and are dedicated to unique approaches that support as well as challenge students to reach their full academic potential.  Families and staff work together to provide daily social/emotional instruction that is needed for all students to develop into Brookside PROUD (polite, responsible, outstanding, understanding and dependable) bears. Our active student clubs Green Team, Executive Council and Children for Change provide students with opportunities for service learning on our campus and in our greater community as they develop compassion and leadership skills.

  • Brookside School Dr. Seuss Celebration

    Happy Birthday, Dr. Seuss!

    We celebrated the birthday of Dr. Seuss with a cafe in the Brookside library. Fourth and fifth grade student waiters served Dr. Seuss books to younger students for their reading pleasure.
