    "Having recently put our last child through Bromwell and just heard about this site, we felt it imperative to point out our experience with the school for 14 years. Bromwell was the pride of our community for 20 plus years, a school the community built up along with award winning teachers, programs and an excellent education. Since the current principal took over 4 years ago, this once nationally recognized, award winning, well grounded, 'distinguished' school is no more. Regrettably the school has essentially been dismantled and survives on it's former stature. The school lost 40% of its staff last year and had a turnover of 85% in 4 years, yet DPS and a small, tight knit group of parents stand behind the decimation. Having seen all four of our children go through Bromwell, the difference between our youngest child having recently gone through the school is in stark contrast to the first 3. Fifth grade was a throw away year and we can only hope remaining talented teachers don't leave. It is our hope that newer parents are made aware of the problems of non transparency and autocratic leadership in concert with a handful of parents so that they can restore our cherished Bromwell!"

    "The Bromwell principal has driven out over 85% of preexisting teachers, many of whom were there for years and helped make Bromwell a Blue Ribbon school as well as keeping it a Distinguished status school. She has create an environment in which many students do not feel safe dealing with her or happy to have her as our principal. This principal is unfortunately similar to other DPS supported principals who fire experienced teachers."

    "I am shocked by the negative reviews. While there has been staff turnover in the past few years, the new staff is fabulous. Bromwell had double digit growth in its test scores this year - and that growth is coming from the classrooms of the new teachers. The new staff is thoughtful in their teaching and assignments. They teach to educate children, they assign homework and projects through which children will learn. They do not assign work for assignment sake to give the appearance of being a good teacher. A really good teacher teaches in the classroom during the day. They are such teachers."

    "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."
