As grandparents, we attended the "Meet Your Teacher" on August 15th with our grandchildren (one in 1st grade and one in 4th). We were quite impressed with the new building and the students were well-behaved. Their teachers were informative and excited about the new school year. We also met the science, music, and art teachers and their rooms were filled with interesting equipment. We highly recommend Brookshire Elementary and look forward to our next visit.
Brookshire Elementary is composed of a great team of caring teachers whose dedication to teaching can not be surpassed. Dr. Marc Rumbler is one of the best principals this school has had. The new building is very impressive along with the new technology. I am very proud of our school.
My daughter attended Kindergarten with Mrs. Maguire. I could not have asked for a better teacher with her positive fun attitude. I felt better knowing my daughter would be greated everyday with a her smile. My daughter still misses being in her class. Dr Rummler is a great principle keeping everyone update to date with the latest information with letters, emails and the ocps phone line. With my busy M-F work schedule, this helped out a lot. There is a lot of parent participation with this school and it made a huge difference with all the children who attends Brookshire. I would highly recommend this school to anyone with younger children.
Brookshire Elementary is an absolutely fantastic school! Dr. Rummler, the new principal, makes himself available to parents and students and is always involved in Brookshire's activities. The school is in a great location with nice homes and a very peaceful environment. Parents are very involved in their children's education there. We are thinking of moving and this school is one thing that will keep me here. My son loves it. It will be hard to find another school like it.
Although Brookshire Elementary School may look tired on the outside, the magic lies within the fabulous dedicated teachers and fantastic involved families which come together to make Brookshire an exceptional place for young minds to grow.
I have been pleased with Brookshire, even keeping my child there instead of private school. That was my opinion through 2008. I don't know what has happened in 08/09 year but my child's learning decreased. It could be a reflection on the leadership of the new principal or the distractions from the budget fiasco. Either way, the 09 year at Brookshire was less than par.
Very happy with the school. Parents and teachers are very involved. I have had no trouble at all communicating with teachers or administrarion. Really like how all kids are grouped according to ability. I was impressed with the gifted program when my third grader was required to complete an independent research assignment-complete with power point presentation. Now, if only we could get a brand new building!
I heard great things about this school, but totally disappointed. This is nothing more than a mediocre school. I agree with one of teh parent about teh teachers and administration. In my experience they were quite uncooperative. If you have a child who is above avergae, do not bother to send him or her here.
