Brookfield has provided my daughter with a solid foundation, as well as a true love for learning. She is a level 2 (second grader) and has attended since pre-k. The level of work she is doing blows away my friends who have children at other private and public schools in the area. There is no comparison. Because of the method of teaching she is so independent, taking responsiblitly for her work. I rarely have to remind her about homework. She actually loves doing it. And it's not because my child is gifted or special, the school is just that good. Love, love, love it! Only possible negative comment would be the small class size...and for many this is actualy a plus.

Both my kids attended this school for 2 years. I was not happy with this school. No feedback was provided on my son's progress on a daily basis. No homewok was given at the kindergaten level. I had no visibility to what my son was doing in class on a daily basis. The teacher was unreachable. I will not send my kids to this school ever again.

My daughter has attended Brookfield Academy, Rochester Hills campus, for three years. The teachers are warm and caring, but are able to keep order and create an atmosphere that fosters learning. The kids are really bright and excel on all the state tests, but what s more important is that they look forward to going to school everyday. The parents are very active in the school, but if you do not have the time to participate they do not give you a guilt trip. I believe most of the parents make a sacrifice to send their children to Brookfield, which bring together a group of people more interested in their children's education than in petty gossip. I love this school and would recommend it to anyone.

My daughter is in her second year of pre primary at Brookfield. I have absolutley loved the schools. My daughter has also. The school is very academically focused but also focused on teaching the young children independence and confidence. I have had great, open interactions with my daughters teachers and Miss Dawn the principal. I have found a wonderful diverse student body with children from all over the world. The largest draw back is the expense( about $10,000 full day pre primary w/no child care added in ) But if you can afford it, I highly recommend the school!

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

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.
