Awesome. They offer musical instruction after school in violin starting in grade 1....free aside from the rental fee. They also have an early morning program open to second grade and above teaching Spanish, or French, as well as alternating Technology and Drama. They have an excellent afterschool program aside from afterschool care that includes classes in music, nutrition, science, and fitness. I signed up my son for the early morning program. He is learning French, and using his tech time to work on math skills. He will have 180 hours more of math and a language than other kids his age by the end of 3rd grade. The teachers are wonderful and caring. They push the kids in reading and math. I am able to meet with them every month to talk about their progress. Five years ago they didn't have these programs in place. I appreciate everything the principal has done to insure we get these grants. I also like that it is such a small school...22 kids per class, with 2 rooms per grade. Everyone knows everyone and we all look out for each others children. North Brookfield is awesome if you want that small, family oriented school community.

This is a wonderful small school with great teachers! Yes they don't always have the town support with the budget, but they do a great job with parental help and limited resources. A friendly, strong school with all new leadership that is helping it become better. Now offering foreign language, extra math and science for grades 2 and up.

I have been in the system for a year and love it!!!!! no the town does not have the funds to back many programs but the support of parents and teachers amazes me. Coming from a city school that didn't even provide a science program for the 3rd I am pleased with my kids' progress.

I am a former student, and now a parent of a child in the system. The teachers in this school are WONDERFUL! They do the best that they can with what they are given. It is not just the prinicpal...the town doesn't support the school like they should. The school does not get enough money, and I blame the town for that. The principal is retiring,so maybe the new one will turn things around.

I agree with the previous statement made about North Brookfield Elementary School. I was a student in that school for four years and I found that though most teachers were dedicated, the resources were minimal and they were under the thumb of an overly controlling principal. She is more concerned with disciplinary action and finding fault in students than she is with their welfare and education.

I have 2 children in NB Elementary. The teachers there do the best they can. Unfortunatley the resources are not available to provide children with an optimal learning environment. My oldest child was an honor student for all her elementary years. There are no programs available for bright children, and as a result, I feel she stagnated at a time when she should have been excelling. In fact, the public schools in North Brookfield offer very little if anything for kids in the community, these kids don't even have a music class. Also, the principal there is difficult to deal with and will always come to a teacher's defense before a student's - no matter what the situation. I am moving to another town and my main priority is to find a school system that will help my children excel rather than just exist!
