Huckleberry Hill Elementary School 1

If you want to know just how bad this school is, attend a Board of Education/Board of Finance meeting. This school is literally falling apart. Schedule a visit and check out the bathrooms. Walk down the halls and look at all the broken floor tiles. Brookfield's town hall is beautiful while our children are being educated in unheated "portables" trailers that were brought in as a "temporary" solution back in the 80's....because the town's priorities are screwed up and the district hasn't been responsible with its money. 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.

My overall experience with this school is wonderful. The teachers are caring and they take the time to speak with you should you have concerns or questions. The principal and vice principal make visits to the classrooms and stop to speak with you as you pass them in the hallway. I am a very happy parent. My child is very happy with his teachers and classsmates. husband and I moved to Brookfield specifically for the school system. It was the best move we've ever made! Love Brookfield!
