Pretty amazing school. I am a current 5th former (11th grader) and I feel that I have learned more in these past 3 years then my entire life before then. I know that anyone who looks at it will fall in love with our beautiful campus and our elite sports teams. We just finished our brand new state of the art science center which houses 3 biology labs and 4 physics and chemistry labs. There is not much that we as students dont have at our disposal.

The faculty, facilities, families and commitment at Brooks are first-rate. We've had 2 graduate from there & go to elite colleges with excellent preparation. The results are more than noteworthy--they're remarkable. Brooks fosters respect for learning and authority, and turns out excellent citizens and achievers. A warm, caring family atmosphere from faculty and administration prevails, and imbues the students and parents accordingly.

It was a great place in terms of individual attention and teachers that care and take an active role in the students' lives. Very little happens in a student's life that their advisor does not know about. The headmaster, Mr. Becker, knows every student's name by the end of the first week of the year and carries around a little note pad that he will pull out and jot down a few new pieces of information that he finds out while talking to the students. I remember having a conversation with him on the way to the class building, 'the link', when he all of a sudden pulled out his note pad and wrote down my latest soccer accomplishment so he could remember. It was probably the smartest decision I've made to go to Brooks.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
