Brockett is not one of Mansfield ISD's finest. I truely question the quality of the education offered at this school. I also feel that problems that arise are never addressed by the principal. Discipline is lacking at this school and I am disappointed in how situations involving violence, have been handled. Parent involvement is low, yet the teachers that my child has had do not even encourage it...in fact it is the complete opposite. Overall, I am disappointed with this school and will do what I can to get my children out of this school district.

This is a newer school with an amazing principal! He is very involved with the students, easy to talk to, always around, and the kids absolutely love him! I think it says alot when you have a caring principal. My daughter has had 3 wonderful years here all with very good teachers. I don't think you will be dissapointed.

I am very impressed with Janet Brockett Elementary. The school is brand new. This is only it's second year in operation. Principal Chuck Roe and his staff are outstanding. The teachers are fantastic and truly care for their students. We are participating in the after-school cup stacking club as well as the running club that the school offers. There is even a 5k Fun Run at the end of the year. My daughter has made many friends and loves going to school.

My grandson attends Brockett. He is a truly more confident little boy now that he is there. He loves his teacher and loves school. He was in a situation with teacher peer pressure, and child intimidation and not just saying this as a grandmother. I was in the school system for more that twenty years and I would listen to my son and daughter-in-law speak of their son in school and things that was happening there and I thought, that it was just words of protective parents, but it wasn't. I am extremely happy with Janet Brockett Elementary School. It's the school for happy children. __Johnnie Tsirigotis____ Grandmother
