    "Bromwell was an excellent school in it's hayday-- I have sent 3 children there and the youngest is getting a far different experince than the older ones. The best teachers have left or are trying to move. We are left with new and inexperineced teachers replacing them who are not as passionate about teaching. Many of our cultural programs have slowly faded away due to a new principal who believes that kids should all be taught in the exact same DPS model -- which unfortunately for our above average kids-- is not the best way to learn. The school was fabulous about 7-8 years ago and before. It is no longer that school. I would send my kids to Steck now if I had young ones."

    "The negative reviews are pretty shocking, coming from a parent of two children at Bromwell currently. Our children are having a great experience both academically and culturally at Bromwell and we have not yet had a teacher who we were not totally impressed with. The teachers seem to have just the right amount of push such that there is a healthy challenge for them to advance, but it is not causing a lot of stress on the kids. Our children regularly come home with a positive attitude about learning and exploring and we have to credit the teachers with this. We have gotten to know many of the teachers personally and have not heard a bad word about their experience at the school. There has been some turn-over at the school as others have mentioned, but this has not had any impact on our children's experience at Bromwell. One other thing to add, every family that we know who has come to Bromwell from another school has had a bit of catch up to do. It is always hard to compare the academic performance of schools but the feedback we get from new families tells us that Bromwell is doing well to advance our kids academically. Hope this helps."

    "The teachers and school were amazing, however the principal who took over the school in 2009 has decimated the staff, lowered morale to an unheard of low and brought down the school's distinguished rating. Only a handful of the original teachers responsible for this school's success are left. She has been responsible for the departure of 18 staff during her brief tenure through terminations, premature retirements and voluntary resignations - unheard of in the realm of top rated schools. This school was one of the crown jewels of the DPS system with a distinguished rating for more than 15 years and this principal brought its rating down to about average. Why in the world would anyone come into a successful school and systematically dismantle all the key aspects of its success including many of its award winning teachers? Tragic!"

    "The teachers are amazing, however the turmoil coming down from the principal's office has cast an ugly shadow over the school. Seven staff members left this years and looks like there will be another exodus this year. The award wining teaching staff is leaving because of the principal. This isn't the great school it used to be."

    "Pulled from the DPS website, here are Bromwell's School Performance Framework (SPF) scores for the past several years. (The SPF scores are DPS "report card" scores for schools, and the scores are mostly determined by academic performance and growth. You can read all about it yourself at http://spf.dpsk12.org/) Year 2007-08 85% Year 2008-09 87% (New principal arrives in Fall 2009.) Year 2009-10 80% Year 2010-11 80% Year 2011-12 76% This can't be called rising performance by any definition. And now six teachers are all leaving at the same time. This isn't the kind of change that's needed; it's the kind to be avoided. A brighter spotlight needs to be brought on this school to explain the falling scores and exodus of teachers."
