    "The major problem with this, and probably every other school in California, is the class size. They jam 30+ kids in a classroom, and due to job cutbacks many of the teaching jobs are job shares between two teachers, each teaching part of the week. So if your kid isn't quiet and conforming, they become a 'problem', because one teacher working part time simply can't handle that many kids and do much more than classroom management. Two or three kids that make noise or distract the class and its over, and there will always be 2-3 kids like that in every class. But the principal says she has a study that says huge classes are okay, despite 40 years of real studies that say otherwise. I guess when we waste our money on pork, we have to come up with some kind of explanation for short changing the next generations' education. So don't feel bad if you end up having lots and lots of meetings with school officials about your perfectly normal child. It just means they're unable to handle their classrooms and would rather that all be your problem instead of theirs."

    "My son was in private school prior to attending Brooks. I had a number of concerns about transferring him to public school. Those fears were unfounded. The great private education my son was receiving had him about a year behind the kids at Brooks. The staff and teachers quickly rectified that. Within a year he had caught up with his peers. He had a very successful transfer to Rolling Hills Middle School which was equally as great. He is now a sophomore at Oak Ridge High School and actively planning his college career. He is active in the community and is a superior athlete. Brooks was the best move we ever made!"

    "The most dedicated teachers in town are at Brooks! The children love their school and are pushed to achieve academically and excel in citizenship. Lots of extras at the school: garden, cross country, after school P.E. and art, strong P.T.A support. We love Brooks!"

    "This school has been the best for our family! The staff is amazing. They go above and beyond to reach the kids and provide extracurricular (chess club) activities for the kids. The standards are high and the children are challenged. I have observed unique and fun teaching strategies in the classroom. It is not just teaching to the test. My children love school and that in itself is the best testimonial from a parent!"
