    Poor facilities money hungry and mean administration. They make kids scared instead of being nice to the kids. Zero confidence in most kids who go there. They brag about reading who cares? everyone eventually ends up reading at the same level. Stay away from this trailer (literally) park school.

    My children had a full education with caring teachers. I appreciate all the enrichment classes and events the children did. If you are wanting a best kept secret I recommend coming and visiting Brookfield school. I do believe they are full in most grades. The classrooms have a small student to teacher ratios. My children have both graduated with the invitations to take AP and honors classes in high school. They both became great public speakers. Goodby Brookfield and thanks!

    Brookfield School has provided my kindergartner with a great educational foundation in reading math writing & so much more. Having the opportunity to read beyond her grade level has opened up her curiosity in all subjects and enhanced her enthusiasm for learning. She really enjoys having Violin Dance & Art as part of her daily curriculum. I appreciate the diverse class offerings that provide my student with a busy stimulating day of learning.

    Extremely disappointing overall. From facilities to teachers to other parents to buildings and grounds and to directors. This for profit school is money hungry and that is evident in every aspect.

    This school is a dump! I am still wondering where all my hard earned money goes? Obviously not to maintaining a safe and happy environment for the students. I don't know how real these past 5 star reviews are considering they all are left in and around the same date of each other. Seems as if they are flooding this website with doctored positive reviews after each negative one which is ruining the integrity of the entire process. I have learned this past year as a parent that all this school cares about is the mighty dollar and they don't have your child's best interest at heart. Can't wait to get my son out. They brag about having white boards and computers that I haven't seen since I was a kid. Maybe they will end up upgrading to Commodore soon.

    We love this school and send both of our children there one at the TLC preschool campus and one at the main campus. The teachers are wonderful and teach each child at their own level while pushing them gently towards further academic success. There are too many clubs to mention and I can't imagine sending our kids anywhere else. My older child says he likes it better than our zoned school because his classmates are nicer. Even though the buildings are smaller he does not seem to mind one bit. The teacher to student ratio is around 1 15 and that we just absolutely love. Academically it is rigorous but we feel it will prepare our children well for the future. The administration always addresses any concerns and communicates frequently with the parents. And the PTA rocks too! Thumbs up!

    My daughter attends Brookfield and has excelled. The program is designed to achieve academic success and experience activities like foreign languages computers library PE art and much more. This school is great for parents looking for small class size and great teachers.

    I have five children and have seen and experienced many preschools prior to moving to Reno two years ago. I am so glad we chose Brookfield for our then 4 year old. Having investigated many options Brookfield was the obvious choice because not only did it have a truly well designed academic curriculum the faculty and the staff (Mrs.B at TLC- amazing) create a warm and nurturing environment which is wonderfully supportive of the child and the parents! In our second year here our junior kindergardener continues to grow in a community that takes pride in not only developing her academic talents but creating a lifelong love affair with school and learning. Our PTA is active and engaged with administration in a positive partnership. Our after school and extracurricular programs are the best I have ever seen. My child will be moving to the main campus in the fall as there is no other Kindergarden that we would consider based on our experience thus far.

    This is our first year at Brookfield School & we have one child at TLC and the other at main campus. So far school has exceeded our expectations and any issues we've had have been immediately addressed to our satisfaction. We have re-enrolled for next year!

    Ok I'll put it this way. Our child who you would definitely characterize as shy thrives at Brookfield. Why? Because the environment the staff from the directors and teachers supporting staff to PTA produce brings out the best and most in the children. We feel very comfortable and confident that with Brookfield we are laying the foundation for our child's successful development into secondary and post secondary schooling. We see it in our child we see it in all the other children attending Brookfield and from what I see and hear it is expressed by my fellow parents as well. Very simply Brookfield produces an overachieving happy product. I don't know how it gets better than that ) "To infinity ... and beyond!"...

    As a parent heavily involved in Brookfield school activities and volunteering since 2007 I can infer who the authors are of the recent negative reviews. My favorite is the parent who posted a horrible review basically claiming she hasn't seen her money's worth AFTER FIVE DAYS OF SCHOOL. These parents would not dedicate their time money and energy to this school if it weren't the best educational choice possible. Yes it is not a New York City style private school and honestly I would not be here if it were. You send your kids to Brookfield for the academics and family feel of the school. You send your kids here because you can trust the teachers staff and administration because they live for these children. You send your kids here because they develop a love of reading and math and science. You send your kids here so they can have music PE art foreign languages and computers when their public school friends are seeing these programs cut. You send your kids to Brookfield because they won t get lost in a sea of hundreds of students. Come and visit the school if you have any doubts.

    This is my first year teaching at Brookfield... I have never worked for a school that is so dedicated to the children. I love how our staff works together as a team to make sure our students achieve such a high level of academics. I am proud to say I am a teacher at Brookfield and I am blessed to be able to teach for such a great school.

    We have been attending Brookfield for 5 years now. Every year I am amazed at how much my children are learning. We love how the teachers are so compassionate and eager to help their students. Because of the small class sizes there is more attention spent with each individual child and because of this we are seeing our children learning one to two years ahead. I would recommend this school!

    My experience at Brookfield school has been amazing! It 's been a pleasure to be part of the teaching staff. It's exciting to see how much TLC has grown and how excited the students are when they walk through our doors. Children love to have fun feel safe and be happy. I feel Brookfield and the administrators are committed to making every family feel special. It's a honor to be part of this wonderful team of teachers administrators and staff. Thank you to our dedicated PTA who have taken the time to improve our schools. We appreciate you.

    I have been a teacher for many years both in the public school system and in private schools. Working at Brookfield School has been a wonderful experience. We have adminsitrators that listen to our concerns and act upon them. Our PTA and other families take an active role in school improvement programs as well as volunteering to help when we are in need. Brookfield's curriculum is exceptional in that it allows the teaching staff to work within the curriculum and teach to the individual students in the way they learn best. I have never before worked with such professional individuals as the teaching staff at Brookfield. What a wonderful school.

    My family has been at Brookfield School for 6 years. BF offers a challenging curriculum for grades Preschool to 8th. The small class size has helped my children thrive and grow well beyond grade level. My first grade student this year is reading at a 4th grade level. It is a testament to our dedicated teachers and administration. Simply stated we have teachers administration and parents who are committed to student success. Our test scores prove this each year. I would highly recommend Brookfield School to anyone in northern Nevada. My commitment to BF is investing in the future for my children and for our community.

    I have two boys with very distinct personalities & learning styles. They re both thriving in various areas of growth & development at Brookfield. Forming a positive desire to learn early on sets the standard for future school experiences. BF provides a safe loving & structured environment making learning fun. BF offers teaching strategies & a curriculum to meet the needs of a variety of learners. BF was the only school I interviewed to produce a curriculum! Other pre-schools danced around the question What is your curriculum? In addition to what I find as an effective and challenging curriculum the manner in which it is presented to students is impressive. Tour the school and one will see engaged learners! One of my sons began reading at 3 & BF keeps up with his desire to learn. My other son was interested in playing & socializing. BF fostered this interest & has stimulating his desire to learn new things. Teaching Special Education it s become increasingly clear teaching a stimulating & challenging foundation as early as possible is imperative. I believe early education builds the bridge for future learning. Thus teaching a year ahead which BF offers is invaluable.

    As a Brookfield teacher I've had a wonderful experience. I am consistently impressed with the professionalism and quality of instruction from my co-workers. I appreciate the opportunity to encourage our students to reach higher standards and goals in reading math and beyond. As a teacher the smaller class sizes provide me with ample opportunity for 1-on-1/small group differentiation. Overall I've had very positive experiences with our Brookfield families as well- they are generally involved and committed to student success. The PTA has been very supportive with new technology and building/grounds updates.

    I wanted to know my children were not only in a school offering a challenging learning environment; I wanted to know my boys were nurtured and cared for in a loving manner. My boys are greeted daily with a big smile and they leave thanking their teacher with a huge hug. If one of my boys is missing me I know their teacher is there giving them a hug and making them feel loved. As an educator and parent teaching our children to grow and develop socially is of utmost importance. I ve seen my two boys move from parallel play to cooperative play earlier than anticipated! Don t get me wrong they bicker and fight; however I have seen their relationships grow between themselves and their friends outside of school. Finally I ve found all staff to be professional and responsive to my numerous questions and comments! The education my boys are getting at BF is a partnership and exceptional. BF is not only a school it s a community dedicated to a common goal for all of our children.
