We've been very pleased with the quality of education that our child has received over the past several years. Her teachers have all been quite good and I think the specials (art, music, PE) are quite strong as well. Parental involvement is high. My daughter loves going to school and that says a lot.

We had a couple of great teachers here, but there were more duds than not - some of whom obviously don't like children, while others have no people skills. Art projects were really ugly and poorly made. Parents love the school and are involved with fairs and PTO and such, but don't seem to have a clue because they don't attend board meetings. Also, there is no AC for students, only in admin offices. The district is becoming super top heavy for only 2 little schools.

This school is the best! I can't imagine what happened in 2008, but you can believe the more recent 5-star ratings. My second child just graduated from Brook Park, and we loved our years there.

I must admit my apprehension towards the school with its student body. Boy was I wrong! I must have received personal phone calls and emails from the faculty addressing many issues that I found refreshing. I am very happy with the school.

I have three children who have or are attending this school. Overall, the teachers are kind and attentive. The principal and superintendent have quickly responded to my inquiries or concerns. The advanced classes are terrific, and the district nurse goes above and beyond her job. We're lucky to have P.E. fourt times a week, art, music, band and several afterschool clubs. The regular curriculum could be more project-based and innovative; that is my one complaint. Even so, my children love their school, and I'm happy they're there.

When I switched to this school, all the teachers were very nice. I improved in all of my classes, especially writing. This is a very good school.

The teachers are wonderful. I switched from Catholic school and it was the best decision I ever made!

My son is doing extremely well here. The teachers he's had have all been very accessible to us, their accelerated reading program is top notch, and the staff has responded quickly to our questions and concerns. The classroom website is updated weekly and my wife and I never feel as if we're missing anything. An excellent school and my daughter can't wait to start kindergarten next year.

We've had a lot of dropouts in communication as well. It's hard to get returned calls or emails. We have another child in RB and the difference between the 2 schools are amazing. With RB, I never have to go hunting for info. The site is always up to date. Brook Park's website doesn't even have the correct staff listed.

The new principal leaves a lot to be desired for leadership. Most emails and phone messages go without response. Communication through the school is lacking in all areas. Since half the students come from divorced homes, they need a better strategy for communication.
