Handles bullying effectively: Disagree


- a
Bullying is mostly overlooked as long as bullies come from families that are singing praises to the school's administration

Supports LD students: Strongly disagree


- a
Programs for gifted and talented teenagers are non-existent


Effective school leaders: Strongly disagree


- a
Leadership goal is to make helicopter parents happy, that's the only ambition.

Develops character: Disagree


- a
Multiple draconian rules at the school lead to mass cheating

Teacher effectiveness: Disagree


- a
Students are hesitant to take AP exams following AP courses at Brookfield Central, as they know they cannot master exams just based on classroom work, a private tutor is required to achieve even a passing score.


Amount of homework: Strongly disagree


- a
Homework is strictly busy work without challenging the student



- a
This is a school that caters to kids that are used to hearing that they are the best thing since sliced bread, without any justification. The school strongly favors parents with ample time to babysit their teenagers along with singing praise to the administration of the school. The ACT and SAT scores have been either stagnant or on the decline for the past 3 years. The number of seniors admitted to Ivy Leagues is in the single digits out of classes with several hundred students each. If you want the best college prep for your kid and do not have time to babysit your kid's every step, please do yourself a favor and look at multiple private schools that offer a much better college admission outcome.

This is an academically rigorous school and, therefore, has done an excellent job of preparing my child for college!

I'm currently a juinior here and I'm really glad this is the school that I attend. Academically, this school is amazing, the teachers can be tough at times, but they really push you to do your best. There is a wide range of classes to take in all subjects and levels. The arts program is really great, although I'm not an artistic person I like to take art classes and see the musical every year. The sports here are really good as well. I'm on the dance team and we got fifth place in the Midwest and got to go to Disney World! Overall just a fabulous school that is making me feel very prepared for college.

Brookfield Central is truly a phenomenal public school; I'm extremely appreciative of the opportunities I had while attending. I really began to realize this once I reached college at the University of Minnesota after comparing the preparation I received in comparison to many other students. If students are willing to put in the work, they will succeed, without a doubt. Other than the semester when I took 24 credits, my first two years of college seemed easier than my junior/senior years of high school; I still have to work hard, but I am so confident in the work that I do. And having both a G&T sibling and a sibling with an IEP, I've seen the great caliber of work dedicated to students at levels across the board. Also, coming from a student who was either involved or had friends involved in other programs, the non-academic opportunities are excellent; whether students are interested in the music departments, theater, visual arts, journalism, athletics, community service, etc... just about every program seems top notch. If students want to apply themselves, they will find great opportunities and successes at Central.
