My daughter just completed kindergarten at Broadmoore and I could not be more pleased with this school! Her kindergarten teacher , Mrs. Martinez, has vast experience and is amazing with kids this age. The counselors and other teachers on staff such as the SLP know my daughter by name and welcome her to school each day. This school has a whole child mindset and and is not soley focused on test scores. We have been redistricted but I am hoping and praying we can get a transfer back to Broadmoore. It truly is a wonderful school all around!

My son has gone to Broadmoore for 4 years now. The teachers there have been pathetic, I constantly hear excuses that they have too many students, not enough funding, or not enough time to teach my son appropriately. This school is 100% focused on testing, only interested in getting state funding. The principal is a political yes-woman/career ladder climber. I have had to get the city superintendent and even state education department involved in several of the stupid decisions they make. From political forms they send home, unauthorized questionaires about family business, they even had a footrace to decide who gets in to all day kindergarten. I moved to this area because of the good reviews, and then the neighborhood has turned into a rental heavy crime ridden area. Not a good school at all. If this school wanted to improve - get rid of the principal, focus on education and stop complaining about funding and crowding. This is a city issue, not something the parents can do anything about. Politics do not belong in public education of my kids.

Great school, good teachers, but poor Principal... they should make a few changes for sure.

Broadmoore has been such a let down... The principal is very superficial and the staff along w/ the PTA is oblivious to anyone outside of their cliques. Every single time I go to pick up my kids, I see the same group of women just hanging around (either in the office, entryway, or somewhere in the school). My child's 2nd grade teacher always had her college aged daughter hanging out in class. What is even more upsetting to me, is that my kids got all A's last year but when we worked at home this summer... they did NOT know what they should have known. I mentioned this throughout the school year when they struggled w/ homework but the teachers assured me they were doing great at school. We bought our house because of the school and now I wish I could get them out of there. Broadmoore needs to take some lessons from Northmoor. The principal and teachers actually care for the kids and take the time to get to know them. Northmoor put education first but made learning fun. The world needs more principals like Mr. R at Northmoor. AGAIN, BROADMOORE COULD LEARN A LOT FROM THEM!

My child has attended Broadmoore for a couple of years now. We have had several great teachers but I have been less then pleased with the principal. In my opinion she is not willing to take the parents input on what would be best for their own child. I also feel like parents are not very welcome at the school. I am very disappointed

best school, best support by not only the teachers but every person working in this school. I am Military this is my son's 4th school easily by far this is the best school. If you want your child be given a way above average learning experience do the best thing you can do for your son or daughter move to Moore and put enroll them in Broadmoore. Oh and bye the way they will love you more just for the huge rock climbing wall in gym.

My daughter attended Broadmoore her 2nd-6th grade years. The teachers were absolutely amazing. They instilled in her a desire to learn and a love for reading. The 2nd and 3rd grade teachers, I recall, would contact me often about strengths and weaknesses and how we could work together to continue improvement. I appreciated their extra efforts. The upper grades even came to some after school activities and I was able to get to know them better outside of school. They expected her learn and I appreciate that. It wasn't about just about homework or grades or tests, it was about making my kid a better person who could learn on her own, outside of school and my care. She has grown academically and in principles and I attribute that to the teachers at Broadmoore as well as home and church. Everyone has worked as a community for my child.

I have been very disappointed in Broadmoores ability to meet the needs of children with disabilities. After several mistakes made by the school staff in caring for my child who is type 1 diabetic I had no other choice but to withdraw my child from Broadmoore. I would not recommend this school if your child now, or in the future, may need help dealing with a chronic disease or illness.

My daughter is in her second year at Broadmoore. I love this school, the teachers, and the staff. Even the janitorial staff is the friendliest I have ever seen. The principal personally greets each child outside each morning and helps them exit their parents vehicles. Wow! The principal and teachers repeat the process after school, helping each child into cars. This school is something special!

I have two second graders that attend Broadmoore Elementary. My girls were new this year and they already feel very comfortable at Broadmoore. The teachers and parent involvement seem wonderful. I don't think I could ask for a better school!
