Brookside Middle School is an “A” rated school, home to over 750 students and their families. As the only Sarasota County middle school that is an authorized International Baccalaureate World School, our students engage in units of study that connect us to the world around us. The dedicated Brookside staff strives to grow world citizens who will contribute to our community through inquiry and knowledge while becoming open-minded, balanced and principled risk-takers. Brookside students will learn the skills required to communicate and reflect as they care for our world community.

Over the past few years, Brookside Middle School has been one of the highest performing schools in Sarasota County. Our staff are truly dedicated to the academic and personal success of all Brookside students. In addition to rigorous and engaging core courses, our elective courses are diverse and allow students the opportunity to explore many areas of interest! With most of our electives uniquely offered on an A-Day/B-Day schedule, students participate in the subject matter every other day throughout the entire school year. Our students may choose such electives as visual arts, chorus, band, orchestra, business, Spanish, technology, Robotics, TV production and physical education. Whether you intended to display your art at Ringling College or compete internationally with our championship TSA and VEX Robotics programs, there is something for everyone at Brookside!

At Brookside Middle, we are a World School acting locally.  We can’t wait to welcome you to our family. Go Cudas!
