Brookside Middle School is an “A” rated school, home to over 750 students and their families. As the only 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 that will contribute through inquiry, knowledge, and be 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. 

If you have a passion for marine life, our Marine Science Academy (MSA) is for you!  MSA students focus on caring for our community through a rigorous course of study and engage in hands-on learning both inside the classroom and our state-of-the-art Marine Science Lab as well as outside of the classroom on engaging field experiences both on land and sea!

The Talented and Gifted (TAG) program at Brookside provides an advanced course of study to prepare students for rigorous high school pathways to college. The TAG program consists of multiple gifted endorsed teachers to meet the needs of advanced learners. The TAG students visit a college each year to explore options for their futures.

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!

We can’t wait to welcome you to our family. Go Cudas!
