What do the directors do with all of the money they rake in? It is a dump, just like a review below stated. The bathrooms stink and are flooded half of the time, and the place is just generally run down. Teacher turnover is very high, and from what I've heard, lots of parents are seeking advice on other schools to attend, some even started homeschooling to get out of this place.

Brookfield has added programs to develop the whole child. Art, drama, violin, are just a few offered. We are excited for another great year with enthusiastic professional teachers and staff at a small family oriented school. Thanks to Brookfield for all you do for our children. Parent and Volunteer

I am extremely disappointed in this school. As a professional in child psychology for 30 years, I will not allow my grandchild to attend a school which only promotes intolerance, unkindness. The stress put on these children is not conducive to a healthy environment. The administration rules with a iron hand and breaks children's spirits instead of helping them grow into happy, confident individuals. As a previous reviewer stated, the administration gauges child development by reading level, which is the most ridiculous way to determine preparedness and mental growth. I am aware that schools in Reno aren't the best, but that isn't excuse enough to mentally torture kids so the admin is able to reach its agenda of having high scores in comparison. A recent study by Harvard university states that whole child is developed when kindness and play are incorporated by making the learning environment fun and not by rigidness and terror.

Reading the negative comment made about Brookfield School, I find myself shocked. My granddaughter attended pre-K at the little campus last year and absolutely cannot wait to be at the main campus this fall. She had a wonderful, positive experience for her introduction to education at TLC, not to mention a teacher who can only be described as the perfect first educator in a child's life. My girl came home daily excited to share what she was learning - things that included learning how to tell time and the meaning of many of our holidays, such as Presidents' Day and Martin Luther King Day; these and many more lessons are not presented in public schools until maybe second grade, if ever. My family and I plan to keep my granddaughter in Brookfield for the long run - she is getting a superior education in a safe, caring environment. Brookfield School, their staff and administrators are the best Reno has to offer!

I have read the recent negative reviews of Brookfield School in absolute disbelief and I feel compelled to set the record straight. The Directors are not only outstanding educators, they are fair-minded individuals with the utmost integrity. Not only is the Administration not bullies; they have no tolerance for bullying in their school. Next fall will be our 5th year at this school and my experience has been nothing but positive. The Administrator and Educator s concern for my children s education is evidenced in how well they know and understand my sons. I can wholeheartedly recommend Brookfield to any parent who puts a high priority on the quality of their child s education.

If you are considering sending your child to this school, take into consideration the negative reviews- they are TRUE. I read them but thought I'd give them the benefit of a doubt. Here we are at the end of the school year I've found the Administration to have extremely poor skills with the children & their staff. They are(uneducated in this field) unprofessional Adult Bullies. The school charges well over $980.00 a month per child. I would hope to see some qualified teachers that know how to make learning fun. Not our experience. They are extremely strict. One teacher went as far to tell a student that they don't know how to add. I've seen the confidence level in my child lower and other children who go their as well. They are not teaching confidence, independence and free thinking. They are creating followers at this school and not leaders. In this school year I've seen 4 children leave the school mid year and 4 teachers as well. Their Academics are high they are teaching a year ahead in each class-so if you are in 1st grade they are teaching 2nd grade curriculum. This is why you see test scores higher than other schools. We'll I gave it a good try. Live & learn :-)

Our son attended Brookfield School for 2 years and loved it. We were very impressed with the teachers and staff and the loving family environment they helped produce. We love the high academic standards they have beginning even in preschool. We have since moved out of state and our son loves his new school, but he often speaks fondly of Brookfield and still names his Pre K teacher as his "favorite teacher ever."

Poor facilities, money hungry and mean administration. They make kids scared instead of being nice to the kids. Zero confidence in most kids who go there. They brag about reading, who cares? everyone eventually ends up reading at the same level. Stay away from this trailer (literally) park school.

My children had a full education with caring teachers. I appreciate all the enrichment classes and events the children did. If you are wanting a best kept secret I recommend coming and visiting Brookfield school. I do believe they are full in most grades. The classrooms have a small student to teacher ratios. My children have both graduated with the invitations to take AP and honors classes in high school. They both became great public speakers. Goodby Brookfield and thanks!

Brookfield School has provided my kindergartner with a great educational foundation in reading, math, writing & so much more. Having the opportunity to read beyond her grade level has opened up her curiosity in all subjects and enhanced her enthusiasm for learning. She really enjoys having Violin, Dance & Art as part of her daily curriculum. I appreciate the diverse class offerings that provide my student with a busy, stimulating day of learning.

This school is a dump! I am still wondering where all my hard earned money goes? Obviously not to maintaining a safe and happy environment for the students. I don't know how real these past 5 star reviews are considering they all are left in and around the same date of each other. Seems as if they are flooding this website with doctored positive reviews after each negative one which is ruining the integrity of the entire process. I have learned this past year as a parent that all this school cares about is the mighty dollar and they don't have your child's best interest at heart. Can't wait to get my son out. They brag about having white boards and computers that I haven't seen since I was a kid. Maybe they will end up upgrading to Commodore soon.

We love this school and send both of our children there, one at the TLC preschool campus and one at the main campus. The teachers are wonderful, and teach each child at their own level, while pushing them gently towards further academic success. There are too many clubs to mention, and I can't imagine sending our kids anywhere else. My older child says he likes it better than our zoned school because his classmates are nicer. Even though the buildings are smaller he does not seem to mind one bit. The teacher to student ratio is around 1:15, and that we just absolutely love. Academically, it is rigorous, but we feel it will prepare our children well for the future. The administration always addresses any concerns, and communicates frequently with the parents. And the PTA rocks, too! Thumbs up!

I have five children and have seen and experienced many preschools prior to moving to Reno two years ago. I am so glad we chose Brookfield for our then 4 year old. Having investigated many options, Brookfield was the obvious choice because not only did it have a truly well designed academic curriculum, the faculty and the staff (Mrs.B at TLC- amazing) create a warm and nurturing environment which is wonderfully supportive of the child and the parents! In our second year here, our junior kindergardener continues to grow in a community that takes pride in not only developing her academic talents but creating a lifelong love affair with school and learning. Our PTA is active and engaged with administration in a positive partnership. Our after school and extracurricular programs are the best I have ever seen. My child will be moving to the main campus in the fall as there is no other Kindergarden that we would consider based on our experience thus far.

Ok, I'll put it this way. Our child who you would definitely characterize as shy thrives at Brookfield. Why? Because the environment the staff from the directors and teachers, supporting staff to PTA produce brings out the best and most in the children. We feel very comfortable and confident that with Brookfield, we are laying the foundation for our child's successful development into secondary and post secondary schooling. We see it in our child, we see it in all the other children attending Brookfield and from what I see and hear, it is expressed by my fellow parents as well. Very simply, Brookfield produces an overachieving happy product. I don't know how it gets better than that:) "To infinity ... and beyond!"...

As a parent heavily involved in Brookfield school activities and volunteering since 2007, I can infer who the authors are of the recent negative reviews. My favorite is the parent who posted a horrible review basically claiming she hasn't seen her money's worth AFTER FIVE DAYS OF SCHOOL. These parents would not dedicate their time, money, and energy to this school if it weren't the best educational choice possible. Yes, it is not a New York City style private school, and honestly, I would not be here if it were. You send your kids to Brookfield for the academics and family feel of the school. You send your kids here because you can trust the teachers, staff, and administration because they live for these children. You send your kids here because they develop a love of reading and math and science. You send your kids here so they can have music, PE, art, foreign languages, and computers when their public school friends are seeing these programs cut. You send your kids to Brookfield because they won t get lost in a sea of hundreds of students. Come and visit the school if you have any doubts.

We have been attending Brookfield for 5 years now. Every year I am amazed at how much my children are learning. We love how the teachers are so compassionate and eager to help their students. Because of the small class sizes there is more attention spent with each individual child and because of this we are seeing our children learning one to two years ahead. I would recommend this school!

Thank you to our dedicated PTA who have taken the time to improve our schools. We appreciate you.

My family has been at Brookfield School for 6 years. BF offers a challenging curriculum for grades Preschool to 8th. The small class size has helped my children thrive and grow well beyond grade level. My first grade student this year is reading at a 4th grade level. It is a testament to our dedicated teachers and administration. Simply stated, we have teachers, administration and parents who are committed to student success. Our test scores prove this each year. I would highly recommend Brookfield School to anyone in northern Nevada. My commitment to BF is investing in the future for my children and for our community.

I have been a teacher for many years, both in the public school system and in private schools. Working at Brookfield School has been a wonderful experience. We have adminsitrators that listen to our concerns and act upon them. Our PTA and other families take an active role in school improvement programs, as well as volunteering to help when we are in need. Brookfield's curriculum is exceptional in that it allows the teaching staff to work within the curriculum, and teach to the individual students in the way they learn best. I have never before worked with such professional individuals as the teaching staff at Brookfield. What a wonderful school.

I have two boys with very distinct personalities & learning styles. They re both thriving in various areas of growth & development at Brookfield. Forming a positive, desire to learn early on, sets the standard for future school experiences. BF provides a safe, loving, & structured environment making learning fun. BF offers teaching strategies & a curriculum to meet the needs of a variety of learners. BF was the only school I interviewed to produce a curriculum! Other pre-schools danced around the question, What is your curriculum? In addition to what I find as an effective and challenging curriculum, the manner in which it is presented to students is impressive. Tour the school and one will see engaged learners! One of my sons began reading at 3 , & BF keeps up with his desire to learn. My other son was interested in playing & socializing. BF fostered this interest & has stimulating his desire to learn new things. Teaching Special Education, it s become increasingly clear, teaching a stimulating & challenging foundation as early as possible is imperative. I believe early education builds the bridge for future learning. Thus, teaching a year ahead, which BF offers, is invaluable.

I wanted to know my children were not only in a school offering a challenging learning environment; I wanted to know my boys were nurtured and cared for in a loving manner. My boys are greeted daily with a big smile, and they leave thanking their teacher with a huge hug. If one of my boys is missing me, I know their teacher is there giving them a hug and making them feel loved. As an educator and parent, teaching our children to grow and develop socially is of utmost importance. I ve seen my two boys move from parallel play to cooperative play earlier than anticipated! Don t get me wrong, they bicker and fight; however, I have seen their relationships grow between themselves and their friends outside of school. Finally, I ve found all staff to be professional and responsive to my numerous questions and comments! The education my boys are getting at BF is a partnership and exceptional. BF is not only a school, it s a community dedicated to a common goal for all of our children.

As a Brookfield teacher, I've had a wonderful experience. I am consistently impressed with the professionalism and quality of instruction from my co-workers. I appreciate the opportunity to encourage our students to reach higher standards and goals in reading, math and beyond. As a teacher, the smaller class sizes provide me with ample opportunity for 1-on-1/small group differentiation. Overall, I've had very positive experiences with our Brookfield families as well- they are generally involved and committed to student success. The PTA has been very supportive with new technology and building/grounds updates.

I have worked for Brookfield School for 8 years. I have watched TLC grow from 12 children to over 90 this year. I feel it has grown because of the quality of teachers and staff no other pre-school in the Reno area can be compared. I can only say for me that the owners and directors are fully committed to making this school the best in education and have always been supportive in training and continious improvements for the childrens needs and staff education. I have truly enyoyed my work environment, my bosses, and co-workers.

When my 4 year old started teaching herself to read, Brookfield was the only preschool in Reno offered a curriculum that met her needs. My daughter enrolled at in Jr-K as a shy little girl who hated change and has blossomed into a confident student willing to try anything, even acting! I was so impressed with the teachers, curriculum, and school community that I enrolled my 5th grader in January. The changes I ve seen with her are just as impressive. She loves Brookfield. She is happy to go to school. She gets up in the morning without prompting, gets dressed, gathers her materials, eats breakfast, and is ready to go without complaint. She comes home from school with stories about her day! How many 5th graders do you know who want to talk about what they are learning in class? She postpones play dates until she finishes her homework. She has become totally responsible for managing her school career without prompting. I knew Brookfield was the right choice for my children academically; but I never expected to witness my children blossom in so many other areas. Our family loves Brookfield.

The scary thing about school review websites is that anyone can review any school. You don't have to go there, know anything about it, or even live in the same state. You can be a family from another private school or a former employee with a chip on your shoulder. With that said, I am a mother of two at Brookfield School. We are at our fourth year at this school. We moved from a large eastern city to Reno and chose the school for the full-time kindergarten program. We were a public school family and had no intentions of staying. Brookfield changed our minds in less than five months. I am grateful for all they have given my children academically and socially. We had great experience at TLC and now at the K-8 campus. The teachers we have had honestly care about our children...and still do a few years later. We have made such good friends at this school and I am proud to be a Brookfield mom. I know we are giving our children the best academics in the area and I know they love the school.

I have two kids at Brookfield (one at the main school & one at the Little School). I have found Brookfield's environment to be caring, welcoming & academically challenging for my children. The small class sizes are a tremendous advantage and my kids regularly recieve quality feedback and direction. Parental involvement is high. My children have attended school in other states/districts and, overall, Brookfield ranks right up at the top. I find the staff to be engaging, pleasant, and committed to my children's academic performance.

Brookfield is an amazing school. It is refreshing to be part of a school that can accommodate the top-tier academic students by challenging them and allowing them to grow to their potential, no matter how high, as well as the students who struggle and require more one-on-one academic support. We have been here for over 5 years and have seen all of our children become well-rounded kids great in the classroom and great at social activities. The complaints I hear on the playground are from parents who think their tuition should buy them the right to boss teachers and staff around like their servants. These are truly the minority as most of the parents here are working hard to enable the children to have this experience. It s worth every dime to come here when you see your child s SAT scores and his/her reading levels. It s wonderful to hear them talking about fractions and division in grades where their public school friends are adding. The teachers are the best you will find anywhere. They are professional. They are here for the children.

In all honesty, I hear so many complaints re: Brookfield (even from staff/teachers). The owners/upper mgt.,spend more time "drinking" according to the teachers of lower education (pre-school). Do they care about their kids?The teachers that have friends/family, allow their kids to come for free, therefore costing the paying parents "more $$$". If you don't believe, check their school records & see who pays & who doesn't. There is so much back-stabbing between teachers/owners, don't know who to believe. I DO NOT agree with the staffs kids coming for free when some aren't even Reno residents. Pop in & visit the younger kids classes (2,3&4-yr. olds). Have to wonder about the teachers. Once again, a lot of "back stabbing". My children don't need this..... very concerned parent!

I am a current Brookfield parent and I could not be happier with the school. My child is thriving - she is academically challenged, happy, and looks forward to going to school each day. I have found the teachers and curriculum to be challenging and creative. We love the small class size, and I feel my child gets a lot of 1:1 attention. We have especially enjoyed the sense of community with the teachers and other parents at Brookfield. We have made many close friends from Brookfield over the past few years and I cannot tell you how happy I am to really know my child's friends, as well as their parents. It gives me great piece of mind to know that my child is surrounded by families with the same morals and expectations as ours. I have to say I was quite surprised to read the negative reviews of Brookfield on here. We have had a very different experience with Brookfield. My advice is to visit the school for yourself and make your own judgement. If you are looking for quality private education for your child I would definitely visit Brookfield School.

Our child is attending Brookfield for the first time...so far I am still wondering where the additional fees of close to 600.00 are being spent. I have yet to see any of the folders from the long list if supplies that were requested. Our childs teacher doesn't want to be bothered with any questions. The administrative staff was very accommodating while interviewing the school, now they can't be bothered. The additional money that is requested on a daily basis is rediculous! We feel like it was a "bait and switch". I was literally asked to leave my child's classroom while he was showing me his desk. Our son has had a wonderful foundation for learning, being creative, etc., prior to attending Brookfield. I feel like his feelings are changing based on the dynamics and rigid structure of this school. We are very dissapointed and feel the pricing is absolutely absurd for what the school actually delivers! I feel horrible that we made this decision and are now stuck until Spring!

I have one child attending this school, and am considering sending my pre-schooler to their TLC campus. From an academic point of view I give Brookfield 5 STARS*****. They are very strong in their Math and Reading. The PTA Rocks and has raised money more than ever. With the money raised, the PTA has purchased Smart-Boards and iPads.They do lack focus on the arts and music. From and administration point of view I give Brookfield 1 STAR *. Their front and principal offices are a mess, the admin makes constant errors in your monthly statement. Some of the teachers are very friendly and accommodating to the needs of your child. Unfortunately not all share this quality. The school building is in poor condition and is a shame especially for the amount of money you give to put your child to this school! If you are looking for a strong academic school, then Brookfield shines out. But that is all you're getting. Overall I am pleased with the results my child has achieved.

Brookfield is an exceptional school for this area. I am very pleased with the academic and social strides my 2 kids have made over the last two years. I have spent some time observing the classroom behavior and interaction between the teachers and students and have consistently been impressed. The teachers and aides are held to a very high standard of professionalism in addition to their teaching abilities. I have received continuos feedback on my children's progress in addition to semi-annual meetings with the teachers. I love the incorporation of energy, enthusiasm and play with the curriculum so much so that my kids look forward to attending school. The PTA is outstanding in their commitment to all the students as they have surpassed my expectations of service. This past school year the PTA brought in top notch technology upgrades to both campuses. Everyone from the owners to the aides in the classrooms are highly accessible and helpful at any given time. I highly recommend this school to anyone who is looking for an environment which fosters creativity, encourages excellence and promotes citizenship for their children.

I am so unahappy with the school administration. I have a child at the school. Many PTA volunteers, worked very hard to raise money for the school thru the PTA. We raised more money for them than they have seen in years. The PTA provided the Smart Boards with the administration dragging their feet the entire time. The administration pays their teachers an extremely poor wage, does not provide enough money for supplies, they rule thru intimidation and finally they are control freaks.. At the end of the school year they did not renew the contract of one of their most creative and energetic teachers. The only reason parents can see for this termination is that they felt threaqtened by a teacher that was raising the bar for the school.

Brookfield is a great learning environment! This might not be the school for everyone but you will know if it fits your family when you visit. The staff and administration are great at getting to know each child and making individual learning tracks. Yes, it's a private school and the costs reflect that but you get what you pay for. The academics are rigorous and the expectations are high. Small classes, great acceleration where needed, good options for extra curricular activities, a very active PTA for a small school, and a wonderful mix of students. A recent addition of smart boards to each classroom is a wonderful addition, the children also get regular PE, language, music, hands-on science, regular field trips and Friday whole school assemblies that are very inclusive and exciting for the kids. The school also highly encourages Accelerated Reading program with awards, weekly recognitions and other wonderful incentives to keep the children reading. Overall, a terrific learning and social environment for our children. Very happy with our decision to enroll our children at the school.

NOT worth the money and not a "high-end" school at all, as the principal likes to think. Experienced teachers have left and new inexperienced teachers are rather immature. Not much emphasis on developmental level of children; poor emphasis on positive reinforcement. Teachers are not enthusiastic or excited to teach. Poor condition of buildings. Limited educational materials. Computers are from 80s. One of the second grade teachers likes to argue with 4-5 year-old kids!

OLD SHED-LIKE buildings, small and poorly maintained classrooms. Computers are indeed from 80s; headsets are heavier than children's heads. It's laughable to hear that principle calls it a "high-end school". Pushing above grade level work doesn't make kids smarter; with repetition anyone can learn. But the creativity and joy of learning cannot be taught with boring and inexperienced teachers. Poor materials, no emphasis on individuality and creativity. I sit in a pre-first grade classroom; teacher shut the children up in almost every occasion; didn't answer simple questions. No respect to little ones. SAD!

It is good compared to the rest of Reno, but you will be disappointed if you moved from any other decent city. No school in Reno would get above 4 stars. Parents 5 stars for participation. Students 5 stars for their good manners. Teachers 3 stars - some are excellent, some are ok, for a private school there should be more consistency in excellence. Curriculum 1 star, too basic.

Brookfield is by and far the best school you will find in Northern Nevada. They have helped my children grow by leaps and bounds, with small class sizes, individualized attention, and a strong focus on academics. They have a weekly hands-on science program which is outstanding, and dedicated classroom teachers who care about the children and are truly interested in educating.

Preschool is rather basic, but compared to the rest of Reno- it's better than daycare. Compared to what is available nationally in other cities, it is a disappointment. The 4-5 year olds are just learning the alphabet, rather basic. Unfortunately, there's not much else in Reno. Teacher turn over is high. Socialization is good for student and parents. Not worth the money, but what else is there? New preschools are openning and they maybe worth investigation. I disagree that the curriculum is accelerated when compared to palo alto, seattle, or any other good school city.

It is a typical private school but has an accelerated curriculum in order to appeal to parents of higher-achieving students, thus the scores on the standardized tests tend to be very high. Curriculum is similar to public schools but the students are taught one grade level higher than their current grade level. This doesn't always work, for if a student is not 'gifted' or nearly so, he or she will struggle. Other disadvantages include high teacher turnover thanks to low pay and inferior benefits to public schools. If you are a parent who likes small class sizes and wants your children to get a head start in the basics, you could do worse than Brookfield.

Excellent school for the overall development of your child. Our 2 sons truly has shown significant improvement not just with their academic performance but their overall attitude towards learning. (Our 5 1/2 yr old (Pre-first) was able to read the Harry Potter Novel before the end of their school year!) They also focus on discipline and developing your child to be a better person. Even if their tuition fee is very expensive, it's worth every single penny. You can never put a value on your child's future. We would definitely recommend Brookfield School!
