Brookside School

K-8 District in the heart of Marin


Brookside School

  • 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.

  • New Student Registration

    To register a student who is not currently attending a school in the Ross Valley School District, visit Student Registration for process information and forms.  Click on the applicable school year.

     

    For the 2019-20 School Year

     

    Online Registration begins Friday, January 25, 2019, and In-Person Registration begins Monday, February 4, 2019.  We do not accept registration items via fax, mail, or email.  Please note that only completed registration packets are accepted and each is date/time stamped.  A completed registration packet includes the online Student Registration Forms on SchoolMint and the In-Person Forms and Documentation.

     

    To assist the District in enrollment, staffing, and facilities planning, please complete the registration process by March 1 or as soon as possible.  Because many elementary grade levels and schools in the Ross Valley School District are impacted, if more students register at their school of residence than can be accommodated, even if by March 1, students may be assigned to another district school where space is available.  Any reassignments will be determined prior to the student’s first day of attendance.
