I registered my son to Brookwood for Pre K and he did not get in. After many month in November, a office lady called and told me that they have a spot for my son if I want him to get in since he was on the waiting list. I am a single mother with two little kids and working from 7 in the morning til 5pm and it was very hard to get off work and the daycare( for before and after school) school bus didn't have a sit til next week so I had to give up or get off the work and ride my son. I called the office to see if they can hold the seat til next week but i knew there was alot of people on the waiting list. I don't know the name of the lady at the office but she has to ask her boss and told me that they can hold it until next week. it sounded like she has told her boss very understandably and tried to get my son in. I very appreciated and happy. Thank you so much!!!
To say I dislike this school is an understatement. To be fair, we came from out of state, from a school district that struggled with funding, but made up for it in the excellence of the staff. I assumed all schools were that way. This one proved me wrong. I strongly dislike this school, and would recommend finding a different one in Columbia county. If you go to schooldigger.com you can see that they are not in the same league as the rest of the district.
I truly love Brookwood Elementary School. I have had 3 children to attend Brookwood, and I can not say what a excellent education that they all received. From the principal, teachers, lunchroom staff, ect...everyone at the school is top notch!
Both my children attend Brookwood and I've had nothing but a positive experience with this school. The teachers are fantastic. Engaged and care very much about their students. The prinicpal is also very good here. We love Brookwood! :)
Well, there are good things and bad things about this school. The counselors are great, the extra curricular activities are great. When it comes to the bus system and the parental involvement, the school is terrible. my son is supposed to get dropped off at 3:50 in the afternoon and is repeatedly dropped of at 4:25 or later. The teachers do not involve parents at all and the also punish and do not reward. if a student isn't as fast as they would like they threaten to take away recess. I am very disappointed because we chose this house because of the school system and the great reviews it received. When I went into enroll my children, even the front staff were unfriendly.
My daugther has been a student at Brookwood since Kindergarten. The whole staff at Brookwood is wonderful. Teacher quality is great! The location is wonderful as well. I would advise anyone who is moving to the area to move to a neighborhood where your child will be zoned for this school. You will be so happy and so will your child. Thank you!
