This school is definitely lacking in ALL major areas. Organization is the area they are least successful, many times sending out notification letters for school events and such the DAY BEFORE the actual event! I found out once that the elementary school had taken the children via bus to a concert hosted at the middle school (not far away) without parent consent! They also seem well understaffed as the principal is often the crossing guard, maintenance man, and lunch helper. It is not uncommon to see him on top of the roof fixing and tinkering! During class recesses and lunch recesses you can find him, as well as the front office secretary supervising the children. Staff seems to have many roles at this school, from playing school nurse to driving the school bus! I kid you not, you can imagine the shock when I observed one of the ladies from the front office driving the school bus! Though teachers seem competent, lesson plans need better structure and they teach very little on culture. Little to no extra curricula or assemblies! Kids don't see many field trips as I'd expect 3-4 trips a year, at Brookwod your lucky to get ONE! There is also a need to improve student safety.

I was a student at Brookwood elementary School and then moved on to the middle school. There weren't very many extracurricular activities and i was not being challenged very much especially in reading. I loved the staff, but the curriculum needed some work.

It's an amazing group of teachers with a small hometown feel that I have always wanted for my children. The variety of events and activities that we do that pull the whole community together teaches our children to be involved in something bigger than just themselves. I feel blessed to have the opportunity to be involved the way I do, and I look forward to celebrating teacher appreciation week!

My son went to this school from kindergarten through 4th grade. The school doesn't have much for activities for the students and not very good security. I was not satisfied overall in this school so he switched.

My daughter has been here since 1st grade and it's a fairly good school. Teachers are good, not many extracurricular activities at all and that's sad. There is also not much of a program to deal with bullying and that's also too bad as it is greatly needed. The principal is very, very dedicated and devotes her life to the job. I love that students learn a foreign language in 1st grade! What a great start for them!

I went to Brookwood as a child and now my own children are attending this year my youngest daughter starting in 2nd grade she is doing much better this year so far then where we were before. My oldest is in 3rd grade and we had a rough start for many reasons but the staff being so wonderful helped us get over the hump. She now comes home happy and has made friends.

I could not be happier with Brookwood School, Miss Henry, Mrs. Newhouse, and all the wonderful teachers that have helped [my daughter] excel! She is a very good student, thirsty for knowledge always and I find that she is quite satisfied with the curriculum at Brookwood Elementary. I also have a granddaughter, who is attending Brookwood... and she is doing very well also. the teachers go out of their way to help both [girls] . I've been a mother for many years. I have 5 children, 3 are adults. I have much experience with many other schools, having attended some of the best private schools in the City of Chicago myself, and I must say I have no complaints at the time with Brookwood.

I had one child attend the Elementary School since 1st grade, one child since 2nd grade and the third child started in the Middle School (5th Grade). As of the 2006-7 school year, all three of my children have made the transition from the Elementary School to the Middle School. There is a noticeable 'gap' or 'learning curve' between the two schools. The Elementary School does a poor job in preparing their student for the Middle School. Thankfully, the Middle School has excellent teachers in 5 - 8th grade and they are able to have success with the students. The oldest child benefited 1 - 4th grade at another school, so 5th grade was a 'repeat' of her prior 4th grade. My two younger children went to Brookwood Elementary and they are above-average students and I still noticed some struggling the first semester.

My son did not enjoy his kindergarten class very much last year. This year my son enjoys every day. He gets off the bus and the first words out of his mouth are 'I had a great day' then he tells me about it. His teacher this year is wonderful so far. He has learned so much in the first weeks of school. It is amazing. We almost switched schools, I'm glad we didn't. I do wish there were more extracurricular activities though.
