Brookdale is an absolutely fantastic school. My daughter loved attending Kindergarten and is currently enjoying First grade. The teachers have been excellent, they care deeply for every child and are completely engaged. The principal is also outstanding - he is outside to greet the children every morning, in rain, ice, snow and wind, making sure that they are herded safely inside, and is there again for pick up. He makes it a point to know every childs parents, and even knows the names of my younger children who don't yet attend. As a parent, I could not be happier!
The quality of the academic programs is wonderful. They have a gifted and talented program available to 3rd and 4th grades and the teacher is phenomenal! The music and band programs are outstanding as well as the art class (teacher is great!). The SCA (PTO) is a very involved group of parents who care tremendously about the students and teachers.
