Message from the Principal

Welcome!I am delighted that you are a part of the Brookdale learning community!  I welcome and value your positive energy & dedication to students.  I look forward to working with you and your children this year!  

Brookdale is a richly-diverse school with over 500 students and over 50 staff!  We offer rigorous, engaging instruction designed to provide students with the tools they need to be successful in school and beyond!   We are committed to using equitable, restorative, and trauma-informed practices.  Students are supported in a way that ensures growth and positive self-image.  In academics and behavior, mistakes are treated as an opportunity to learn.

We use MTSS (multi-tiered systems of support) to ensure that students don't fall through the cracks.  Staff monitor student academic and behavior achievement and make instructional decisions based on the data.  Students may receive additional support to meet standard.  

Facilities Update!As you may have heard, there is a lot of construction happening in the district!  The new Collins, James Sales, & Harvard are in various stages of building and that means that we are getting closer!  As this year progresses we will be sure to keep you posted regarding the process and how you can be involved!  This will be such an exciting time and I can't wait to begin the journey to a new Brookdale!

We value the importance that that family has in the achievement of students!  Your input is important to us!  Please don't hesitate to contact us if we can be of assistance or if you have any questions.
