Brookside is home to over 700 students and their families. We celebrate our learning as an authorized International Baccalaureate World School where units of study connect us to global decision making. We are growing world citizens that will contribute through inquiry and knowledge. They will be open-minded, balanced and principled risk-takers. They will think, communicate and reflect as they care for our world community.
Brookside offers a balanced selection of courses. Students engage in core classes, such as language arts, science, mathematics and social studies daily. Most of our elective classes are uniquely offered on an A-day/B-day schedule which allows students to participate in the subject matter every other day throughout the entire school year. Our students may choose such electives as 2-D art, 3-D art, chorus, band, keyboarding, drama, Spanish, technology, robotics, news and physical education. Our class sizes are small, we have 20 different clubs and sports, and free tutoring is available to all students.
We are an IB magnet school and accept applications from families all year long.
Welcome to CUDA-Nation and the Brookside family!
You’re invited to Unite, Share, Care & Collaborate
