Dr. Westfahl takes time for each student and parent. He is never to busy to say hi to anyone. He makes everyone feel welcome and special.

This is a wonderful school. My other kids went to Swanson so I was worried about putting my daughter in a different elementary school. They have been nothing but wonderful! I am really happy that this is our home school!!!

My kid was enrolled in the middle of spring semester of 3rd grade when we moved here from other state. The front desk was actually very friendly and helpful. Everything went smoothly. The school has a high bar for academy. The gifted program is wonderful. After the first two months in the new school, my son went through some tests and was suggested to attend 4th grade math class while others stayed in the 3rd grade classes. The school also has well-organized music program, orchestra and band for the 4th and 5th students. Their concerts are fantastic! It s one of the best schools! If I have to pick something that I am not so satisfied with, that s probably no after-school program. It s a little hard for working parents. (But there are two child-cares on the school bus route.) When we lived in other state, that school had after-school until 6pm.

Inexperienced principal and poor leadership. Look else where if you have a child with special needs. Extremely behind the game when it comes to teaching children with special needs. They don't believe in teaching children with special needs, they believe in containing them.

Amazing school! High scores, dedicated teachers, caring principal, nurturing climate, terrific parent involvement, fun activities for kids, and the list could go on and on.

This is a very well run school. Some parents object to the rules and business like atmosphere, but the principal is fair with all the families. I can't image a better school for my daughter.

I must also agree with the first reviewer who stated that the principal and office staff are unfriendly. I have experienced the same. On a better note, however, the school itself and the teachers have been great with my kids. They are learning well and they really enjoy being there.

Brookfield Elementary one of 2 new grade schools in the Elmbrook District. The teachers and curriculum are top-notch. The Principal and front office staff are consistently unfriendly. The school encourages parental involvement which is great! There is limited after-school programming.

My daughter went to Brookfield EL. for K thru first grade and she loved it and so did we. The award winning building is beautiful and has a lot to do with how the kids feel, it has a nice open feel about it. The class sizes are appropriate and the teachers are highly qualified. My favorite part was the open door policy, parents are welcome at all times and are encouraged to volunteer and be involved in the school! The principal and front desk staff could be a little warmer, I didn't find them to be too friendly. Absolutely love the parent car pick up system devised by the dist. It should be the norm! Supervision and safety on the playground needs improvement!

We moved to Wisconsin 3 years ago but weren't happy with the district we moved into. Since switching to Elmbrook and Brookfield Elementary we feel we are in a whole new world - it's fabulous! Every child should get to go to a school like this.

We have only been at this school 1 year so far - we transferred our son from a private school and he started his 2nd grade year at Brookfield Elementary. We love it! Their academic standards are current and the teaching is excellent. I definitely plan on sending my other 2 children there! Parent involvement is very high which I think is so important.
