While the teachers are caring and fond memories of yesteryear are strong, [there are] entirely too many disciplinary distractions to consider it a good school. This is not a neighborhood school at all.
I feel that Brookmeade has a discipline problem with TOO many of the students, however, they do have a program in place to encourage responsible behavior. The level of parent involvement is very high... I am concerned that the test scores are low...although, my son is doing very well.
well .. seeing how it is .. i went to brookmeade k-4th && two of my cousins did the same .. my family LOVES the school .. everyone is soo friendly! .. it has over come a few changes since i have been there such as adding onn .. && the new play grounds .. but the teachers there are VERY loving .. (( they have the BEST p.e teacher .. MISTER WOOTEN!!!)) .. but i 110% recommend this school .. your child will have friends for life from here! .. such as i do! .. thank you
I have not been happy with Brookmeade. Although the administrators are kind, they are totally unresponsive to parental concerns. There is also a lack of extracirricular activities and there is little opportunity for counseling the kids if they need a soft shoulder or help problem-solving. I also think that the emphasis on discipline retards the childrens' creativity. I believe it has a much better reputation than deserved.
Brookmeade Elementary school is an awesome school! My son is in the third grade and has attended Brookmeade since kindergarten. Our son has had terrific teachers, the principal (Mr. La Veck)is a warm hearted caring person who cares deeply for the students. Brookmeade has strong parent support and is focused on making Brookmeade the best it can be! Brookmeade provides a great overall learning environment and we feel blessed that our son attends Brookmeade!
