My son attended Brockett for 7 years (pre-K through 5th Grade) and he had a wonderful experience at the school. Teachers were warm, friendly and responsive, while pushing their students to do their best. The school counselor is amazing. We were very happy with our experience at Brockett ES.

Brockett Elementary is a wonderful little school. My daughter who is very shy started at Brockett in preschool, and she has blossomed while there! Her teacher has been great and very encouraging and supportive. There is a community feel to this school with a good group of children from all backgrounds. I highly recommend Brockett!

They children do not know how to use critical thinking and analyical thinking skills.The Administrative Staff was good. The two Presidents of PTA did not care about the parents, teachers, students or the school.

Brockett Elementary is a lovely school. My children have been through every grade at Brockett and we have yet to be disappointed. The principal is a strong leader, and the teachers truly care about their students. It's easy for parents to be involved in the classrooms, library, PTA, etc. I would absolutely recommend Brockett to a parent looking for a school in Dekalb County.

My daughter started pre-k at Brockett Elementary this past August - so my rating is only based off of a small period of time. But, I can say that so far we are very impressed. The pre-k teaching staff is highly engaged, very open to communication and motivating for my daughter. The school administration, so far, has had solid communication with the parents. I'm not over the moon about the current Principal, but I'm not passing complete judgement on her until I've had more direct conversations with her. On the surface she is very nice, but I expected someone with more of an authoritative demeanor - so I'm not complaining. The PTA has been very active already and their emails and communication is great. My daughter takes her lunch every day because she says the cafeteria food, "is yuck" - but you can take or leave the opinions of a 4 year old food critic. The other parents seem very nice as well - we walk to school most mornings and everyone greets each other and smiles or waves. Overall the atmosphere is very positive and we're happy we chose to send our daughter "public."

This is a ok school but the principal is VERY lazy , she does nothing for the school,you never see her she's always walking around doing nothing and I think Mr Andrews should be the principal he has more principal qualities instead of assistant principal qualities and also they need to change the cafeteria staff because the cafeteria staff are very sorry they have poor quality food they serve kids on the last day of school last year spaghetti sauce just the noodles and sauce no meat very very poor they have should never have do this.the dekalb county needs to be held at the same standards as gwinnett county ,because the school system is ridiculousthe counselor at the school Ms Jones is very sorry in it just trickle down from the principal being sorry .is this cool can get a new principal then the school would drive better and they will have a better rating fofom me a parent.

Brockett is a phenomenal school! My son and daughter were previously home schooled before that they attended a charter school that overwhelmed them. Once they attended Brockett they begin to truly enjoy school again. My daughter's reading has drastically improved. Reading has now become her favorite thing to do. My son's teacher is awesome. She actually takes the time to go over subjects that challenges him. Both my kids teachers are awesome. Parents are always involved and very friendly. Principal and assistant principal are always smiling and very approachable. I absolutely love Brockett and is very pleased with the entire staff.

Brockett teachers and administsrative staff are awesome and are meeting the needs and honoring the diversity of the school. It's a great blend of children and we couldn't asked for a better experience.

Brockett is the best kept secret in DeKalb County. The atmosphere is one of teaching and learning. Academic success for all students is what the entire faculty and staff strives for. Excellent!

I went to Brockett for a long time. Brockett is a great school. There were never fights. The teachers really care about you. The food can be good at times but it was mainly bad. You dont have to do a lot of homework or projects. If you swear or say anything innapropiate they will make a huge deal about it. Brockett is like any other school it has its ups and downs but trust me it got more ups than downs.

My siblings and I went there as children and as immigrants from Seoul, South Korea. I still visit this school from time to time, as well as my first apartment in America. The teachers were fantastic, and the principal, Mr. Lankford at that time, personally cared about us. It left me with many unforgettable memories which make me smile from time to time. It's a wonderful school which I didn't realize at that time. Students: give it a chance. Life is not all about taking or what's on the surface; it's about giving and inner joy. Parents: get involved for the sake of your kids. I wanted my parents to help-out sometimes but I learned to accept the language barrier they had, and grow-up and take responsibilies for the rest of my family. It was good; I was a child who had to act like a grown-up, and eventually became one.

My son attended Brockett from K-6th grade, he had good time he was challenged through out his school years. Parent participation was good, teachers, principal and assistant principal listen to parents needs and questions and help kids whenever is needed. I do not remember any teacher who did not consider my suggestions it was either discussed or implemented when the teachers found it appropriate and fit the learning objectives. Thank you Brockett for giving my son great elementary experience.

The school is a hidden gem. Its unique demographics obscure the fact that the scores are significantly higher than the state and county averages. Our kids go there and will continue to do so.
