I am a parent of a ninth grader and a seventh grader. We moved from ID a little over a month after school started. I was concerned about the kids not being picked on because they were new, but everyone is very nice. There are kids that want to learn and kids that don't, which you have anywhere you go. The only thing that I am not happy with is the fact that my kids both say that there is a lot of swearing in the school.

Brockbank has one of the best staffs I have ever worked with. The teachers are highly professional. They mentor their students with caring while providing a rigorous curriculum that is delivered with the required differentiation to meet that needs of the diverse student body. We have implemented many innovations to make learning relevant to our students. We provide many of our students that come from difficult background the structure and nurturing environment that they need in their lives.
