Bromley East Charter School is a great school. The teachers are very attentive. The classroom sizes aren't overwhelmingly. Parents volunteering is welcomed and is always helpful. The staff is wonderful ... From Mrs. Sheldon (principal) to Rhea (front office) to Shannon (lunchroom), etc. My kids had a few problems, but was swiftly handled well. The staff has seen replacement, but to the better of the school - weeding out teachers that are not good and getting ones that want to teach and be good to these young impressionable minds.

Bromley East has a high turnover rate among administration and staff. The current principal was issued her throne via backroom dealings and a messy "Coup d' tat" at a school board meeting. In the past two years the best teachers have begun fleeing the school clearly signaling that something is amiss. They have been replaced either by teachers asked to leave other schools or by 22 year old kids fresh out of student teaching. The administration is always open to meet and discuss school issues but unfortunately are not competent enough to actually fix anything. Unable to keep a basic calendar or task list they let issues stagnate until all hope is depleted. Or maybe they are just plain passive-aggressive. While Bromley maintains the facade of being better than local public schools test scores and student achievement state otherwise.

Both my children attend or have attended Bromley East since kindergarten. My oldest son just finished 8th grade their since last spring and is now in highschool. BECS prepared him very well for his high school experience. It great to have a school that allows your student to stay in one school and community for the first 9 years of school. The middle school at Bromley East is small having only about 300 students in 5th to 8th grade so students do not get overwhelmed or lost. My younger son is in the 3rd montessori program this year he is reading at a 4th or 5th grade level.

Bromley East Charter School has been an excellent school for my GT daughter. Before we came to Bromley, she was bored in all of her classes. She struggled to make friends and was living only in her books. Now she is part of three different clubs, active in Drama performances and making great friends. Her academic scores have also continued to go up! Thank You to all of the wonderful teachers at Bromley for welcoming my daughter and helping her to blossom into a true leader!

My kids have been at Bromley for 6 years now and it keeps getting better. This school had some struggles in the beginning along with changes in administration, however, the current administration is awesome! They have brought so much to the school and are improving it every year. My kids have always done fine, but under this leadership are growing so much more. My son needs to be challenged and his 1st, 2nd and 3rd grade teachers have all done amazingly with him. They send him home with more difficult work, suited to where he is at. As long as I keep good communication with the teachers and administration, they are always willing to listen and help. My son was bullied in first grade and the teacher/administration put a stop to it immediately. I love all the clubs the school offers and that there are small class sizes. I feel like under the current administration, Bromley is going to get better and better. I have already seen this administration replace teachers who were not at the level you need to bring a school up. So I trust where they are going and am excited to have my kids be a part of it.

My kids have been attending B.E.C.S. for 4 years now. Both of my girls are reading 2 grades above normal as well as 2 years ahead in math. The teachers have added additional learning opportunities to keep my kids interested and challenged. The teachers are very approachable and interested in each of my children. I love the atmosphere of the school and the emphasis on leadership qualities. When I look at kids attending a regular middle school, there is a vast difference in dress and behavior. I feel like I made the right choice for my children in choosing to come to this school.

This school is going through another turnover with administration and frankly, I feel the board of directors needs to bring in a new Principal. While the principal may look good on paper, she does not have the best interest of our children in mind. While I have no doubt this school has some great teachers, we received a Montessori female Kindergarten teacher that is terrible. There is no communication with parents, most of the children are not engaged in the classroom, and I wouldn't be surprised to find out that the children will be behind going into 1st grade. Parents beware.... There is also a lack of respect at this school across the board. This is evident in the parking lot at drop off and pick up. Parents park in no parking zones and sometimes block other cars in. What are you teaching your kids? Parents...the respect for one another starts at home and then will filters to our children. Our children follow by your example.

My kids started Bromley the last 6 weeks of school in 2011 and we saw a complete turn around in their work ethic and their attitudes towards school. They both love Bromley and would be devastated if they went anywhere else. Mr. Olmsted, 4th grade, is outstanding! My daughter had him last year and I made sure to request him for my son this year. There are a variety of electives for middle school students to choose from and I feel it has really empowered my daughter to try something new. S.T.E.M. is her favorite elective, by far. The teachers give each student individual attention so they know where they are and what kin of help they need. The administration is doing a wonderful job of taking Bromley East to new heights and challenging the students to do the same. We live 10 miles on the other side of town and I wouldn't dream of sending them anywhere else.

BECS is an incredible public charter school. I have two children in the school and have had a great experience over the past 8 years of being in the school. The administration changes that were made at the end of the 2009-2010 school year did bring BECS to a new level. Academically the expectations are challenging for my kids, they have brought the school up to date with respect to technology and the added programs have enhanced the "whole child" concept. I would recommend our school to anyone looking to offer their children a great education and enriching environment to learn in.

My daughter is in Kindergarden at Bromley and she has really blossomed so far this year. She had never previously been in any kind of preschool and was extremely shy, but her teacher never gave up on getting her to open up and I was always in the loop on what was going on. We're not allowed to mention names but her teacher is awesome. I would recommend this school to anyone and wouldn't send my daughter or my dog for that matter to the local public school. Bromley is great, no complaints here!

Bromley has been average since the beginning but now things are looking up. The new adminstration, school appearance, atmosphere, and the changes to the middle school along with new classes/electives have made for huge improvements. Bromley is Soaring to New Heights!

Previously, Bromley had a K-4 principal, a 5-8 principal, and a dean of students. However, the school board has restructured Bromley administration. Beginning with the 2010/11 school year there will be one principal over all the grades and two vice principals. The three previous administrators were replaced with three new and highly experience administrators. Check-out Bromely East Charter School on Facebook, see what is new. (grandparent of student)

I have two step-children who have attended BECS for the past couple of years. On the one hand, I'm glad the school challenges the children and gives them homework every night, and I think the teachers they've had have been mostly qualified on the whole. However, their father and I are not even close to being satisfied with the level of communication between home and school, particularly when it concerns incidents that involve his kids (who have had both academic and behavioral challenges), and we end up having to hear about it from the children's mother 2 weeks later or when we check the grades online and it's too late to do anything about either. We've REPEATEDLY requested to be in the loop, both to teachers and principal, since we share custody with their mother pretty equally, but to no avail. They may go to another school next year.

My children have attending this school for 3 years and can definitely say this school is one of the better in Brighton. I removed them from another public school in the area because of the incredibly large class sizes and poor teachers. BECS CORE Knowledge program is fabulous and starting science in kindergarten rather than 5th grade is a definite plus. Yes, there is a lot of homework and the teachers are either wonderful or duds. The principals are mediocre at best but you will find support with many other parents eager to have quality education for their children. If the school would add a few more teachers like TJ Olmsted (4th grade) and a few others like him I would gladly upgrade this review to 4.5 stars.

Our son attended this school for the 07-08 school year. After an unsatisfactory year, we decided it would be best to check out Colorado Virtual Academy. Our son took the placement tests and placed 2 years behind where he is supposed to be. I do not recommend this school to any parent who is involved with their child's education. You will find yourself struggling with the teachers, as well as the principal.

My student started at BECS as a kindergartner and is now in the 4th grade. BECS's CORE curriculum is challenging and expects alot out of young students, and most students step up well to this challenge. However, there is ALOT of homework assigned at this school, and it can be a challenge for kids to organize it all. For example, my student failed 3rd grade math simply because he couldn't get assignments turned in on time. Third grade! GT services are non-existent here, as are any special-needs services unless your child has an IEP or 504. As with any school, parents are the best teachers and you need to advocate for your child. We are trying to place our child at another school where the curriculum can be tuned to his individual needs, but until that happens BECS is the best choice for us in Brighton for K-8.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Colorado used the Transitional Colorado Assessment Program (TCAP) to test students' skills in reading, writing and mathematics in grades 3 through 10, and in science in grades 5, 8 and 10. The TCAP is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Colorado. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test. The TCAP replaced the CSAP as Colorado's state assessment program effective for the 2011-2012 school year.

The different student groups are identified by the Colorado Department of Education. If there are fewer than 16 students in a particular group, the state doesn't report data for that group.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
