I love Brookfield..the principal is new but she seems very concerned about what's going on...I've visited on several occasions and she was always in sight...helping outside during the morning rush, helping at lunch directing kids, and alwAys available to talk and interact with kids and parents. I have two girls, one going into third and the other kindergarten and I love all the teAchers so far.I like how they handle entering kids in kindergarten...they go to all teAchers the first two days and they pick their teacher based on a number of different factors to make the mix of students fair on a number of levels. There is before and aftercare offered and run by the YMCA and even though every year there are different people in charge they have routine they work with the kids to keep them active and help with homework and I don't worry about their safety. There is such a lot of parent involvement, everyone works to make holiday parties fun,teAchers can rely on parents to give volunteer time. We get good feedback at conferences and teAchers really try to push the kids to excel because I've been told they don't have to spend as much time with discipline issues like at other places.

Brookview is a fantastic school. The teachers and all the support staff are caring and provide a top notch education to all their students. The parent involvement is also excellent. I can't say enough good things about this school.

This school is so much further ahead, academically, then the Catholic schools here in Rockford. After leaving a Catholic school, Brookview offered to tutor my son to bring him up to where he should be. He's flourishing and has come a long way from where he was when he started at Brookview. They actually cared enough to help him learn.I have nothing but praise for Brookview School and their staff.

I did not want to send my child to public schools, but was forced to do so because of my child's special education needs. I am so glad we chose Brookview. The teachers are great. The parents are very involved. Rockford has a shining example in Brookview.

Parent involvement is key to the success of Brookview. Leadership by principals has been excellent for the past 10 years and the current principal is fully dedicated to the welfare of the students. Although the school has been hindered by ongoing legal issues within the Rockford School District and a school board that is so disjointed as to be dysfunctional, Brookview has proved a bright spot for the community. I am pleased that my oldest child graduated from Brookview and that my second child is now a student there.

I have two children that attend Brookview, one in first and one in second. The teacher leadership and commitment to each and every child learning is truly remarkable. Brookview school holds the highest standards that every school should use for the truest example on the way a school should be run. One of the toughest choices a parent has to make is selecting where their child will begin his/her acedemic career. I can say with honesty, choosing Brookview for mychildren is the best choice I have ever made. The principal and every teacher in Brookview is a great example of how education should be conducted.
