Our History

History of Brookside

In the Fall of 1993, Brookside School, home of the Bobcats, opened its doors to 250 excited Kindergarten thru 7th grade students. It was a small school with innovative teachers in which there were high expectations for all. The school began with a multi-age classroom model. This instructional practice fostered learning between grade levels within one classroom. Over the past many years, there has been a lot of change.  We now have a school with a population of over 750 kindergarten thru 8th grade students.  All classrooms are grade level specific.  State standards have increased in rigor and our classrooms are equipped with an abundance of technology. 

While there have been many changes, there are many things that are remarkably the same.  We continue to have innovative and creative teachers that are dedicated to our students.  We have a very active PTSA that does extensive fundraising to provide our students many enriching educational opportunities.  Our families and community provide a high level of support for our school and students in many capacities.  Brookside School students continue to exceed academic expectations.  The Bobcats have earned 1st place finishes in the the following county and state competitions:  Math Olympiad, Math Counts, Math Steeplechase, Science Olympiad, and so much more.   Brookside School has been recognized as a distinguished school.
