The principal, Kevin Andrews, is involved in all aspects of the school - and he is very approachable. As a frequent substitute teacher, I can say that the students at Brooks School are polite, friendly, helpful, and charming. I have witnessed sincere friendships among diverse races and nationalities and have not witnessed any bullying behavior. Cheers to all who make this a reality.

5... The school has a lot to offer, but there seems to be some turmoil among the staff there. I think this can be a distraction to the wonderful school that it is, and hope that whatever issues exist, can be resolved.

Disagree that parents don't car about education! Why are they so involved in PTO if they don't care? There is an online discussion about the library staffing, and agreed that their could be improvement there. The former comment is obviously made by someone is involved in the library issue. The library issue is one that many would like to fix, but the methods of getting attention to it are putting most people off. It's turning into a personality issue and that shouldn't be taken as a general comment on this school.
