I had to pull my child out of Brookhaven. Different schools have different personalities, which reflect the personalities of the people who do the hiring. Some teachers at this school are self-absorbed. The school is too focused on test scores. Some of us parents witnessed a couple of teachers being very poorly treated. We didn't like the social hierarchy among staff and administration. This is not a healthy environment for children.
As a Parent this School was terrible. The staff were rude and not caring for my 12 year old autistic son. Too much home work and the bullies were rampant around here. The teachers were not that great. Avoid this school as much as you can and I recommend a different middle school either Twin Hills or Sebastopol independant charter school.
My daughter attended Brookhaven for middle school (grade 6-8), and had such a positive experience. We selected BH over other schools in the area due to the warm and supportive atmosphere of the school. From the administration, to the teachers, to office staff and students -- we were often impressed by the overall kind and caring culture of the school. We loved that the principal was out greeting students and parents in the parking lot as they arrived each morning. The selection of electives was unmatched by other local schools (wood shop, drama, ceramics, etc). But most importantly, our daughter was 100% prepared for her first year of high school. The transition was seamless, and she and her BH friends appeared to have a much easier transition than kids coming from other middle schools. She was very well-prepared academically and earned a 4.0 GPA her first year at Analy. We recommend Brookhaven very highly.
Love, love, love Brook Haven. Our kids are in 1st and 5th grade and we love their multi-age program. It enables the kids to learn at their own pace. Especially K-2, as your child needs to learn concepts by end of 2nd grade -- and this program enables them to mature at their own schedule. Also the multi-age program gives the students the ability to learn and teach kids younger than them by solidifying their learning.
