We are a military family who moved here from a much larger base and were very nervous about the size of the school. It is a small school, but the staff are wonderful and dedicated. After only a short while many of the teachers and staff knew myself and my children by sight. I have been very pleased with my children's teachers and the amount of personal attention they have received. They are learning a lot and are enjoying themselves while they do it!

New Brockton Elementary school has made education and well being of every child top priority. The teachers show love and concern for each child clean or dirty. I have watched the teachers wrap their arms around children that were hurting in ways we can not imagine and make a difference in that child. New Brockton Elementary making a difference in America one child at a time!!!!!

We have two children enrolled at New Brockton elementary school. One is in her fourth year there, and we have been very pleased with this school. The teacher quality is super! Every teacher our children have had has been extremely helpful, loving and caring. Another great quality about this school is that our children feel safe. We have never had a problem with safety or discipline. The leadership and education that our children have recievied at New Brockton Elementary has made them feel confident and special. Also, they have enjoyed the extracurricular activities, which the parents and community are so involved. Overall New Brockton Elementary School has been a wonderful experience for our whole family.
