My daughter attended the PK-4 program and will be in kindergarten this fall. So far, I am very pleased with Brookland. I find all of the administrators, office staff, teachers and volunteers to be very helpful and they all seem very invested in my daughter. There are many opportunities throughout the school year for parents to get involved and overall, my daughter seems to enjoy school, her teacher and making new friends. In terms of academics and the social environment for older students, this is an area I need to do more research. I am considering transferring my daughter to another school across town with higher academic ratings once she gets older, but for right now, Brookland is a good choice.

The principal here at this school has no sense of direction when it comes to driving these students. I observed her allow students to use profanity, fight, and run circles around her staff and she did absolutely nothing. I don't feel my child is safe at this school under her direction. These kids had to be no older than 10 years old cussing up a storm in front of her. She also is very rude to her staff in front of students and parents. PLEASE STAY FAR AWAY FROM THIS SCHOOL PARENTS!!!!!

My daughter was bullied and abused by 3 boys and two girls and the principal did nothing about it. I was even notified until my daughter came home and told me that she bribed her an the other students with candy not to tell the parents. Inasked for a meeting with ms malakina and was barred from the school. I withdrew both of my children. The kids aren't safe and most of the parents don't even know what's happening on a day to day basis

WARNING TO ANY PARENTS OF PROSPECTIVE STUDENTS OR PROSPECTIVE TEACHERS: Save yourselves and your children from the stress, headache (figurative and literal -- NOISY) and awful administration and steer clear of this nightmare of a school. Ms. Malykhina is a horrible administrator who does not support her staff at all but instead berates and reprimands them in front of students. There are no consequences whatsover for the outrageous behaviors and dangerous situations that are allowed to occur in this building because she is trying to keep her suspension rates down. There are so many students that prevent the learning environment from being productive that ultimately very little learning takes place, with no consequences at all for the students causing these disruptions. They continue to act like this because of the complete lack of consequences and administrative support for these actions. Students who want to learn will ask teachers to "do something" about it, but there is nothing that the teachers can do. Malykhina's answer to everything is "increased rigorous instruction" -- which is true to an extent, but she ignores the fact that the school has become a dangerous place.

Brookland is doing an excellent job in educating and preparing their students for the future. The teachers and staff know all of the students and really show that they care. The middle school portion of the school offers honors sections in both English and Math. Students have gone on from Brookland to attend a variety of high schools, from Banneker to Wilson to McKinley Tech to Coolidge to Duke Ellington. The Brookland experience is great from Pre-School all the way up through 8th grade! We are just hoping we get the Gymnasium that was promised to us-keeping our fingers crossed!

More than just a school, Brookland is a caring community of educators. Brookland's staff is constantly striving to excellency. With Mrs. Pressley at the helm and a team of committed teachers supporting, the students have the best DCPS has to offer.

Brookland Elementary is an Excellent School! The principal, staff and teachers are wonderful, kind and caring. They treat the students as if they were their own children. The principal, Ms. Donna Pressley is outstanding in her position. My two older sons graduated from Brookland and have done very well at their next school. I still have a daughter at Brookland and she is in kindergarten class. I just want to say that Brookland has always felt like family and when you enter their walls, you feel safe and secure. Keep up the good work Brookland - this is a school that's going places!

I am impressed with Brookland for two reasons, I am a former Brookland student myself. My daughter is now a Kindergarten student who is excelling! I am proud of her accomplishments. I am pleased with her teacher. The Principal is a wonderful operator of a well oiled educational machine! Good job Brookland staff, keep up the good work. P.S. My Kindergartener daughter is now reading thanks to Brookland's dedicated teachers!

The teachers at Brookland Elementary School open their hearts to the children and want them to succeed. The school has an open door policy and encourages and welcomes all parents to be involved in their child's learning. The Principal is great! She interacts with all of the children from all grades. I have seen her come into the kindergarten classroom and assist the teachers with the children, by singing 'learning' songs with them both in English and Spanish while the teachers were having a special science competition for the kindergarten students. I can not say that I have seen this type of support, from Principals, in other schools. The children at Brookland Elementary School show great self-esteem, which is cultivated through encouragement and respect for their classmates, the teachers and the Principal. 'It takes a Village to raise a child' and you have that Village at Brookland Elementary School!

I am totally impressed with this school!! The principal is wonderful and the teachers are extremely good and caring. I am a member of the PTA and the parent involvement in the school is great as well. I would encourage anyone looking for a GREAT elementary school to come visit the Brookland Family.

I was very dissapointed with Brookland Elementary School this past school year. I was especially dissapointed with the Principal. She seemed to care more about the overall appearance of the school than the actual students attending. Although there are some note worthy teachers there, I believe they are not allowed to promote a healthy learning environment under her guidance. I noticed that most teachers appear to be discouraged thus tranfering that on to the students. In my opinion, the environment is not condusive to learning or growth for those who are important...our children.
