Some teachers discriminate and if you get bullied they will deliberately build a case against the student and manipulate their grades even if it destroys the child's self esteem and happiness. They are extremely arrogant. Very concerned about the rigid grading system that seems to highlight memorizing math steps rather than understanding and applying key concepts. Makes me wonder whether the teachers fully understand the Singapore math concepts themselves. Definitely an overrated institution where the caliber of teacher does not match the high tuition fee. Teachers PLEASE STOP THE BULLYING!
Do not send your child to BA if he/she is gifted and extremely advanced. Most BA teachers have no clue how to accommodate someone who is very advanced and neglects them. The kid ends up picking up bad habits and sitting around doing nothing. Such a waste of money. The environment is extremely arrogant. Teachers and head believe in labeling students with mean labels.
The school does not offer a rich variety of subject matter particularly in the arts. There are no musical ensembles besides choir which greatly lacks. The school is also not entirely up to par with the caliber of its teachers when you compare them to the price you pay for tuition. Couple these things with an environment complacent of students getting bullied and a very arrogant overall atmosphere and you've got a very overrated institution.
Caliber of teacher not up to par with the tuition amount. Lacking in math, science, and technology education.
We started our oldest child in 6 th grade, and have been completely happy with our decision! This school has gone above and beyond to not only provide an excellent education, but also assisting parents in guiding the students in character and truth. It's amazing to watch our son striving to be like his peers- smart, hard- working, dedicated! I highly recommend attending an open house or contacting admissions to schedule a tour. You will be treated with kindness and respect! The teachers and staff are 100% committed to all students! The big picture for us is also when you see where these students end up after BA; impressive colleges and scholarships for most grads. This is why we know this is the right place for our children!
Watch out for bullying and cliques! Many parents are also teachers so it is very difficult to get an unbiased opinion.
I personaly think that this is a fantastic school and if you have a chance to come visit and join I would be the most wonderful school experience!
Great pre-k to level 12 program. Small enough for great teacher/student ratio but large enough for ok class size. Around 800 total in all levels.
The school is excellent.Our children have been here for several years and are getting a superb education.The approach is traditional blended with the best of the modern.My children have never had a poor techer.It is not inexpensive but you receive value for your money.Traditional American values are emphasized.The racial makeup, while majority white, is very diverse.Children of any background or ethnicity would fell comfortable here.Brookfield academy students continually score first or second among all schools in the Milwaukee metro area on federal standardized testing.Parental involvement is unparrelled.No I do not work for the school. I am just very satisfied with the school.If interested try an open house.
We were new to Brookfield Academy middle school two years ago and have been very pleased with the transition. The teachers are especially exceptional at this school...it is easy to notice they love their jobs and really care about the children. The class sizes are small and they really have an opportunity to get to know each child on an individual level. The school not only focuses on academics but also strives to develop a child's sense of character and guides them to be responsible adults. I highly recommend Brookfield Academy.
