In 2010 we relocated to Windham specifically for the schools, the first two years were fantastic. Since the implementation of Common Core two years ago the quality of education has declined significantly. After brief discussions with the new Super, Curriculum Director and Principal it became blatantly obvious they are all over her head and don't understand education. Such a shame, Windham used to be one of the best districts in the country, and with the amount of resources this town has it's a travesty it has sunk to such lows. If you enjoy outrageous property values, high taxes and an elitist attitude from parents and school administrators alike, this is your town. If you're looking for a great education for your children, save your money, there are a lot cheaper locations to live with better schools.

We re-located to southern NH 9 years ago. And with 3 children our highest priority for location was the school system. Two of three have gone through the Golden Brook experience with out youngest now entering first grade. The experience with GBS for out children has been wonderful, far beyond what we had hoped for. The program challenged our children and the approach to teaching was vaired for all types of learning styles. A wonderful, small community atmosphere in town that translates directly to the school system. The teachers and administration are first rate with the full support of the community. The parents are fully engaged and involvement is very high. With our oldest now in middle school our experience throughout has been identical. We're looking for to the new High School and all they have to offer.

It is a small community school with a special feel. The students and teachers are enthusiastic, and very caring about each other and the community. Golden Brook reaches out to the community with a Yard Sale Fundraiser, participatio in the 'Relay For Life' to fight cnacer, to name a few things happening this month.

My daughter is leaving GBS and entering 3rd grade. She has a wonderful 2 years and learned so much from both of her teachers, the many aides, and other instruction (including art, music, etc). The school welcomes volunteers and so many parents are involved at all levels. GBS is, in my book, one of the best elementary schools in NH.

Terrific school with a warm, nuturing environment. Children thrive here and parental involvement is abundant and crucial to their success. Strong leadership is evident right from the first exposure to this school.

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.

Oops! We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Public and charter school test scores for most states come from the state Department of Education. The most common reasons we might not have this data are either that not enough students took the test or that the school was recently opened, and its scores have not yet been reported.
