Our daughter is entering her 3rd year at Brouillet and began here her kindergarten year. We were on a district transfer due to being military and while waiting for a second vehicle our daughter was carpooling with a friend who had children at Brouilett. The transfer was granted and was the best thing to happen for our daughter. I absolutely love the office staff and both teachers that she has had so far. We just recently bought a house in the firgrove Elementry district and I will NOT switch her to that school under any circumstances. As long as she can continue to be on the district transfer she will continue on at Brouillet and I will do whatever I can to keep her there. If for some reason she ever has to leave Brouilett we will be enrolling her in a Catholic school. I do not want her at any other public school in the area. Emma genuinely loves her school from the academic side to the social side. I have nothing but amazing things to say about this school. Test scores speak for themselves! The teachers are caring and attentive. And they know your child not just as another student passing through, they really know your child. Nothing more a Parent could ask for!

This school is racist! I'm military and belong in the district and hate it! the administration is HORRIBLE and the special eduacation department is even worse! If you can volunteer at the school all day, you will receive favor from the staff. If you can from a family that needs two incomes, your screwed!

We are a military family and based on the location we decided to buy our house specifically so our children could attend school in this district and we have had no complaints. My children love going to school and I'm glad we made the right choice. I am really happy with the quality of teachers so far.

This school is very over crowded and has long had poor administration. Racism much? hum? There is no hope to raise happy children here it's all about test scores and making a districts look good. Want your kids to be happy and well rounded. HOME-SCHOOL.

This school is filled with racists, liars, and bullys. And this is just the staff

My daughter has Autism, and I adore her teachers and para-educators. My daughter entered school there three years ago, and at that time was completely non-verbal. Her vocabulary is now huge, and she is also readying and writing. We started off in the Clover district, and she didn't have teachers that really worked with her, nor challanged her to grow. This school and the educators in it are such a blessing. I can't speak for all the teachers; however, if you have a special needs child, this is the school you want them to be in.

Being a military family and having to transition my children into yet another school I was thrilled when we found Brouillett, Stahl and Rogers by moving int the Puyallup School district. I was impressed with the teachers and staff from 2003 to current in each of the schools that took an interest in teaching and caring for my kids. There was an overcrowding issue up to 2009 but with a new elementary school built helped the problem. This area is highly desired and still growing so those will remain issues for this district. The academics have proved, by state awards over the past few years, to show first hand the dedication these 3 schools have to learning/academics. I also was impressed with the amount of community support that is given to these particular schools. I highly recommend this area to live and these schools to place your children for their future benefit.

I had kids at this school up until this year. It is seriously overcrowded with no end in sight due to district money issues. I will say that the first grade team is superb and really concerned about individualizing reading instruction based on the needs of the students. After that, beware--the school is primarily concerned with State testing and spend way too much class time teaching the kids the scoring system and how to get the best score on each type of question. This is not meeting academic needs. Besides academics, the school fails to exhibit any sort of school pride or community cohesivness. It is somewhat of a depressing atmosphere. Having been involved in several schools over the years and being a teacher myself, sadly I would recommend staying out of the Brouillet district.

I have a 4th and 5th grader enrolled at this school and it has been a blessing! Principle Lisa Berry is really involved and welcoming to all the kids. Teachers are great and kids are super! Very positive learning environment.

Even with a new school in the vicinity, Brouillet is seriously overcrowded. The administration seems a bit more scattered and disorganised than last year, a lot of seemingly 'last-minute scrambling'. Teachers, as always, are wonderful though!
—Submitted by a parent


Posted November 12, 2007

My son attended Brouillet and while it was overcrowded the staff was excellent and tried to make the best of a bad situation. With the addition of a new elementary school, I hope the student to teacher ratio has dropped. I know before the new elementary was even opened, they had already moved portables onto the property. Poor planning by District Admin is the only issue any of the schools in our area have.

Both of my kids have been attending this school for years. We love it. I don't think we've had a bad teacher yet! The principals are very involved with the students and welcome them through the door each day. The PTA is wonderful. They sponsor several fields trips, offer a fall carnival, hold a book fair, and an end of the year barbaque. I highly recommend it.

Caring and compassionate staff members--a rich learning environment for students. Brouillet's PTA offers enrichment classes during the year; also excellent music program. Parent involvement is incredible!

Posted June 29, 2005

We haven't been at Brouillet very long, but it seems like a fairly solid school. The assistant principal & secretary are wonderful, energetic & know most of the kids by name (which is very impressive with the amount of children at this VERY overcrowded school). They seem to handle the overcrowding well also. It's distrubing to see the test scores slowly decline, so as a parent I hope to be able to help work with students to bring the scores back up.

Excellent parent involvement, teachers are good. School is presently overcrowded. A great school.

Posted April 11, 2004

Unbelievable how this area is overpopulated, the schools are terribly understaffed and the students are overworked. We need values and education both in value of time and value of students emotional and educational well being. We get none here. The kids are stressed and the school is consistently setting them up for failure by shortening the school day(s), too many vacations, sending entire subjects home to be taught by the so-called 'parent involvement'.

Brouillet is a family orineted school with tremendous parent involvement. The vast majority of the teachers are excellent with great enthusiasm for teaching. Brouillet is severaly overcrowded, as are most schools in the Puyallup school district.Many portable classrooms are being used on the campus. The school has exceeded it's capacity with no new schools being built in the new future. Puyallup (South Hill) does not have a long term growth plan and school overcrowding is a big problem.

In 2012-2013 Washington used the Measurements of Student Progress (MSP) to test students in reading and math in grades 3 through 8, in writing in grades 4 and 7, and in science in grades 5 and 8. The MSP is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Washington. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.
