Best academic experience for kids in Southwest Michigan by far. The teachers are amazing, loving, and nurturing. I am not a Montessori supporter per se but my child has had such a lasting, superior experience through this school and I am grateful for it.

When we first moved into the area we were just looking for daycare for our 2 year old daughter. After looking at several other facilities, we toured Brookview and knew immediately that this is where we wanted our daughter to go. She is now almost 6 and is doing great a Brookview, we can't imagine her any place else. The Montessori method is so completely different from how we were educated growing up, but the more you see it and understand it, you realize this is how all children should be taught. We feel extremely fortunate to have Brookview in this area and are so glad we took the time to check them out, it was one of the best things we could have done for our daughter.

I love Brookview School because they allow my children to be individuals, they and they guide them to be their very best! I also love their emphases on the arts, Spanish, diversity and the environment.

An amazing school in so many ways! Our family has been a part of Brookview for almost 10 years and we look forward to another 10- our youngest is 3 and our oldest is 13. My children coudn't be happier. The parents are involved, the staff and faculty are dedicated and the facility improves year by year. Living in a state where 'teaching to the test' is the norm it's exiting to have children in an environment where they are taught to reason, develop ideas and exrpress themselves creatively. Asking my 3, 9, and 13 year olds what they learned/did at school today turns into conversations about string theory, African geography and music! Bookview provides both a caring nurturing environment as well as an academically stimulating one. We're proud to be a Brookview family.

About this school

Brookview School and the Montessori method emphasize independent learning and exploration. With multi-age classrooms, older children gain leadership skills as they guide younger students through works that they have mastered. Younger students learn in turn from older students perfecting their social interaction skills and questioning logic. Self-direction and time management are important components of the Montessori philosophy. After receiving presentations from the teacher, children are responsible for planning and prioritizing their follow-up work. All students share in the responsiblity of caring for their classroom and school environment which fosters self-confidence and accountability.
