    North Brookfield has failed several times with their Special Ed department. Following through with IEPs is rare and parents must fight tooth & nail to get the minimum. The "committees try & bully some parents into their child receiving less than they need yet they will claim they are helping the children. Many families that have dealt with the school system have elected to transfer to other area schools for both special ed and greater opportunity.

    The NB schools have really turned it around for the positive. With a brand new middle/high school building and new administration - the place has become a welcome learning environment for kids and a place where parents feel good about. Small can be really good!
