The Brookside School community is committed to providing a program of academic excellence, cultural richness, and social, emotional, and physical development that educates, supports, challenges, and inspires the whole child. We believe every child has the innate ability and desire to learn, and that all children need challenge and support to grow to their full potential.  Families and staff work together as a team to create opportunities for developing healthy self-worth, celebrating diversity, thinking critically and creatively, taking risks and showing respect for one another and the earth.
