Brookside School provides children with many opportunities to experience a quality education. While our educational programs take into account the physical, social and emotional needs of our students, the primary educational focus continues to be largely academic in nature. Emphasis is upon acquiring a strong foundation in all subject areas; developing critical thinking and problem-solving skills; and fostering attitudes of social awareness, civic responsibility and cultural enrichment. Students also have many opportunities for classroom and individual use of computers with up-to-date software and access to the Internet. Programs such as student council, gifted and talented, music, chorus, band, special education, art, world languages, and physical education are also integral components of our school’s curriculum.
