About 90% of students in my year got they they grades 1 lower than expected. Some of them got them 2 grades lower than expected.
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!
My daughter attends Brookfield and has excelled. The program is designed to achieve academic success and experience activities like foreign languages, computers, library, PE, art, and much more. This school is great for parents looking for small class size and great teachers.
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.
This is our first year at Brookfield School & we have one child at TLC and the other at main campus. So far, school has exceeded our expectations and any issues we've had have been immediately addressed, to our satisfaction. We have re-enrolled for next year!
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.
This is my first year teaching at Brookfield... I have never worked for a school that is so dedicated to the children. I love how our staff works together as a team to make sure our students achieve such a high level of academics. I am proud to say I am a teacher at Brookfield and I am blessed to be able to teach for such a great school.
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!
My experience at Brookfield school has been amazing! It 's been a pleasure to be part of the teaching staff. It's exciting to see how much TLC has grown and how excited the students are when they walk through our doors. Children love to have fun, feel safe and be happy. I feel Brookfield and the administrators are committed to making every family feel special. It's a honor to be part of this wonderful team of teachers, administrators and staff. 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 two children that attended Brookfield. The teachers and administration are compasionate and caring professionals. Thank you Brookfield for giving my children a broad, strong academic head start in life. We also think the professional Art teacher, Dance teacher, PE teacher, Violin teacher, and Spanish and French teachers are truly amazing group of professionals.
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.
