Both my son (3rd, 4th, and 5th) & daughter (preschool, kindergarden, and 1st grade) went to this school for three years. It was a horrible experience or anything but my daughter is dyslexia (but wasn't diagnosed until the end of 1st grade). She missed the fundamentals of reading from this school. Her kindergarten teacher was unfriendly, never smiled, and my daughter was afraid of her. Her first grade teacher ignored her disability and finally towards the end of the year, I was able to get her tested for dyslexia (which I was correct, she had dyslexia and ADD). By that time, the 1st grade school year was over, and it was too late. Luckily, she transferred to a school in Round Rock because we moved. But, she had to repeat the first grade again, in order to gain the material that Brooke & her teacher never taught her. I gave the school an extra star because their school lunches were much better than other schools. They were healthy, wholesome, and nutritious - the kids still talk about their school lunches at Brooke!
I have two sons that attend Brooke Elementary and I have been IMPRESSED!! The Principal is wonderful and cares for the kids and supports parents in more ways than one. The office staff is great and is always willing to lend a hand if need be. The Teachers, Speech teacher and Special ed. teachers are GREAT!! I have only good words to say about this campus. Keep up the great work!!! Proud Parent, Minerva Cervantes
I would recommend that parents look very closely at Brooke before moving to the area. The staff is highly disorganized- they didn't have their back-to-school night until almost six weeks into the school year. Also, my child was tested and passed into the gifted and talented program at the beginning of the year, and nothing has been done to get him started in the program. Being that the school is in a rougher part of town, the staff is more discipline oriented than positive reinforcement oriented. The communication between the teacher and parent is also limited until a problem arises.
