I not only taught at this school, but I am still involved today. I have taught all over, philadelphia, NYC, suburbs etc...this is, by far, the best school I've ever taught in or worked with. The #1 goal of the school is HAPPY KIDS and they achieve that while giving them a superior education that thinks outside the box. The kids are supported academically, creatively, emotionally. They study things like robotics, chess, organic gardening and meditation. They offer music, art, movement, outdoor adventures, Spanish, computers, PE etc. And...the staff is treated like gold. Happy teachers equals happy kids. Must check out this school! 5 STARS and then some.

This is a pretty good Montessori school for the Nova area. Sometimes some of the front office staff are little rude or annoyed, but other than them most everyone is super friendly. They provide a nurturing, fun, friendly education environment and have lovely grounds. The pro's include incorporation of mindfulness into the curriculum, the playground, extended day for those that need it, and lots of enrichment (art, spanish, yoga, etc.) opportunities during and after school. The cons are that they have recently lost two of their long time lead teachers in the preschool program so the quality is unknown in those classrooms (they've replaced the experienced teachers with really new teachers),some of the office staff are not the friendliest people around, and they have a pretty aggressive fundraising policy. However, the admissions process is relatively painless.

Brooksfield is a Montessori School dedicated to the arts and outdoors. My children are thriving and love going to school everyday. They learn about a wide range of topics and love every minute of being in the classroom working. They love their specialist classes, gardening and the arts! The teachers are always positive and go out of their way to get to know your child and you as a parent. The families are very outgoing and participate in many different school related activities. The learning that goes on in the classrooms is amazing and the children walk away each day with a wealth of knowledge. I highly recommend looking into Brooksfield.

This is seriously an AMAZING school. The children are treated with so much respect and love and taught to love learning. The school is well-run, efficient, warm, friendly, responsive to parents and houses the most amazing group of highly-trained, creative, friendly, wonderful teachers. I am so thankful to have my daughter in this environment.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

Oops! We currently do not have any student information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.
