    "As a parent, I found this school lacking, academically and socially. My daughter is persistently bullied and the administration offers no help. The curriculum is inadequate, almost to the point of boredom. When these issues are brought to the attention of the administration, they blame the parent and community. The principal actually told me the "diversity" of the school student body causes the school to perform low academically. There are inappropriate assignments, for instance, first graders were made to memorize the song "Somebody that I used to know" for their concert, and the students complained, but again the teachers and administration turn deaf to the opinions of the community. Here's the warning: send your children somewhere else!"

    "I think Brookside is a wonderful school for the children. The current principal is very good with the children, always trying to improve. Programs are always available to students (but with limitations of students getting in). Teachers are young and enthusiastic and willing to work with you. Children learn skills to move onto the Jr. High and I think it is great prep. I never liked 'no mark ups for spelling', but under the new principal Spelling is being looked at much closer... more improvments are sure to follow."

    "Brookside has a new principal as of July 1, 2007. His leadership has changed the school greatly. The school is much more academic focused. The music department influence in the school has also been cut back. The focus of this school is now on teaching the children not making artsy book reports and other projects. There are many great teachers and some very poor ones at Brookside. Receiving a Star School award a few years back has allowed a few teachers think that they run the school. The open classroom setting of no walls and 75 students in a huge classroom reminds one of the failed attempts at this form of education in the 1970s. The new principal needs to clean out these teachers which will improve overall teacher morale. Overall Brookside is a great school. The new principal is always available to work with students and parents. The whole school district is working very hard to improve its academic performance."

    "Horrible setup for academics right out the gate, even though the administration claims all the groups are equal. Virtually no homework is given it was impossible to check progress, teachers were unavailable for extra help or feedback to parents. Only when there was a problem i.e. comprehension, was a parent notified. If homework was given, progress could be followed. Too many involved artsy projects, not enough focus on math basics. The math program used was very confusing. Too much focus on socializing and trips. Principal was not available, concerns were ignored and parents made to feel as though they were a nuisance. We are considering switching to parochial school for next year."
