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.
