Brooks Elementary School 3

Posted December 02, 2010

Overall, Brooks is an adequate school. There are some good teachers and some not-so-good teachers, as with all schools. Some things that concern me as a parent about Brooks Elementary are: 1) There is no building security; anyone can enter the school at any time, 2) teachers miss a lot of school due to illness and "personal" reasons and 3) the building is old and not well kept. While the curriculum seems to meet the needs of the children and state requirements as well, the books are outdated and in poor condition. Some children even have to share books.

I have had two children to go through here. It is a great elementary school. Tosha Behel is by far, the best teacher a mother could ask for her child. She helped to conquer my child being dyslexic by her support both educationally and mentally. Without her guidance, he may have felt his reading disability was a problem instead of a 'gift of looking at things differently'. Thanks for all of the teachers we have had along the way.

My daughter entered first grade reading on a beginning K level and ended the year reading on a fourth grade level. She loves school and her teachers. Second grade is just as great! Great team work between teachers and parents makes for a positive experience for all involved.

Brooks is a wonderful elementary school. They care about the students and it shows in everything they do. My son is in Mrs. Allen's class, where he receives great care and attention. 'I would like to thank Mrs. Allen for everything she has done for my child. I can honestly say she is a true teacher and great person.' God bless you Mrs. Allen and Brooks Elementary School staff.

Brooks is an awesome school! There is so much parent involvement, everyone is willing to lend support to the teachers and staff. My daughter is in Ms. Brown's class K. Ms. Brown is such an great teacher that my daughter wants to go to school each day because she is afraid that she will miss out on something wonderful. She is such an out-going teacher. The counselors are very helpful and kind. The staff is always waiting to assist and provide information. The principal is everywhere. He is involved in all events and is outside the school each day keeping an eye on the children and welcoming them to school. My daughter knows him as well as she knows her teacher. I give Brooks Elementary 5 stars. They do an superb job! Sandy Buttrum
