Philosophy, Mission, "The Brookfield Way," DEI Statement, and Expected Schoolwide Learning Outcomes

Our Philosophy
“Brookfield School is a thriving independent, co-educational, college preparatory school, serving children in Kindergarten through eighth grade. The school is best known for its rigorous accelerated curriculum and emphasis on character development. Brookfield’s primary purpose is to prepare our students to become independent thinkers, responsible citizens, and effective leaders.

To achieve this purpose, the curriculum is challenging and balanced, class sizes are small, and students are held to high academic and behavioral standards. Teachers are selected for their collegiality, professionalism, dedication to scholarship, and passion for teaching accelerated learners.

The Brookfield community is proud of our diversity. We emphasize respect and understanding of each other’s differences. We welcome students of all religious, ethnic, and social backgrounds.”
Our Mission Statement
"Brookfield School is a learning community where children are nurtured and cherished.  Our mission is to encourage and guide our students to develop to their fullest potential, both intellectually and socially.  Academic excellence, civility, and good character are hallmarks of Brookfield graduates."
The Brookfield Way
The Brookfield Way is our path to success.

Brookfield Students are always Rising to the Challenge!
Diversity, Equity, and Belonging

Brookfield School is dedicated to embracing everyone. Our school community is strengthened and enriched by the diversity and interconnectedness of our students, families and staff.  From building a culture where all members of our school community are respected and appreciated for who they are, to practicing equity-based and welcoming hiring and admission policies, to providing a curriculum that represents diverse perspectives, we’re doing what it takes to build an inclusive world for all. We challenge ourselves to regularly evaluate and refine curricula, policies, and practices and to commit the appropriate resources to ensure we embody these beliefs everyday.
