Caring teachers and nice environment. Good community at the school. The special Ed department though ignores doctor evaluations , does not provide appropriate instruction for LD. New York seems better to understand what is needed to teach the LD
Terrible, TERRIBLE special education program!!! The people in charge of identifying children's special needs only see what they want to see. All IEP decisions are predetermined and entirely budget-driven. Parents' concerns and concerns of outside professional evaluators are ignored. And even when teachers attempt to speak up for children with disabilities, the district's special ed director is right there to sway the meeting and get the teachers to change their answers. And when you complain about it, the district says "so...sue us" knowing full well that an $100,000 due process hearing is cost prohibitive for 99% of families.
The reason we moved here was so our children could go to Brookfield schools. We have not been disappointed. The administrators, teachers, aids & auxiliary staff are all very friendly & accomodating. I feel like my children are getting a quality education here. The curiculum can be challenging & for children who need extra help there are programs for that. Special Ed students have to meet the qualifications to get into that program but tutoring is widely available there.
Great school! We are new to Brookfield and I was concerened about my son not knowing anyone and how he would transition. The teachers are great, the programs are great and most importantly I feel safe with my son attending this school.
