This place should have closed a long time ago. All of the excellent teachers are gone.

I participated in the Reading Carnival at Brookview ES on May 7, 2014. The event was well organized and well attended. I enjoyed reading to Ms. Pitts' 4th grade class! Great way to spend some time with great students! Way to GO Brookview!

This school does have some mismanagement issues. Starting with people is the first. The teachers, parent community, and moreover the students have yet to fully embrace the current administration which came in 2009. Micromanagement is a reality for the teachers because other staff members are mismanaged for the administrations benefit and not the students. Some of the good things are overshadowed by numerous negatives. If you are resourceful enough to view this website then this school is not the place for growth for any human being. With such a negative atmosphere at the end no one is going to win in the long stretch.

Brookview's environment is built on a lack of trust, incompetency and ego's. The administration team is horrible which has a downward effect on the teachers and thus the students. Until there is some self-reflection and self-evaluation of the school, don't expect Brookview to ever meet the challenges of the 21st century. There are many great teachers there, but there is no support. The current administration team is a mess and clearly does not know how to effectively lead. Good Leaders motivate, not micro-manage and mandate. Soon enough, you will reap what you sow.

This is the worse school EVER.....The teachers, staff, children, and parents are the worst that I have seen. I plan for this to be my children's first and last year.

BVES has a changing culture and greater accountability! This change is uncomfortable, but necessary. Some can meet the challenge, and some cannot. Our children have changed in the past 30 years, and our teaching methods mut change as well! Success is imminent!

Horrible school, out of control kids. Behavorial problems, teachers ignore the problems. No parent involvement.

Worst school ever! I would not recommend this school to anyone. My son was stuck by another student with a pencil in his neck. Teachers say they didn't see anything but the nurse say another.

Brookview Elementary School has the unique distinction of having featured the first ever bmx (bicycle motocross) race. The race was sponsored by the 7th Grade class in 1973 and organized by the race's winner, Wind O'Neal. Although the course was flat and square in shape it spanned the entirety of the back playground and consisted of a gravel surface and one jump made of plywood. A parent took pictures of the event

Brookview is an excellent school. The staff and the principal do a wonderful job as far as teaching discipline and teaching all learning objectives to the students that attend Brookview. This is my daughter,s first year as a prekindergartin student and I am assured that she will attended K-5 at Brookview.
