School Reviews

  • Recommended January 25, 2011 - I love this school. My son has been a scholar at Edward Brooke for 2 years now and its great. I feel as though he is extremely advanced in all subjects. Many complain about the tough discipline but I agree with it 100 percent. Why waste valuable learning time correcting discipline problems? When that occurs all students are affected. I do not want my son to miss out on learning something because a classmate misbehaves all the time. - Posted by Parent
