Dear Parents,
Welcome to Brookside Elementary School, home of the Brookside Tigers! We strive to recognize the potential in all learners and to translate that into performance. Our team approach to teaching and learning encourages the academic, social and emotional development of the whole child. Our students are joyful learners and delighted to come to school.
Brookside is an outstanding place for learning. It is ranked as one of the top elementary schools in California. For 2012, Brookside has received an Academic Performance Index (API) score of 954. Out of more than 130 elementary schools in Ventura County, Brookside earned the third highest overall API in the entire county. The school has been recognized as a National Blue Ribbon School by the U.S. Department of Education for meeting national standards for school excellence. We have also been named a California Distinguished School by the California State Department of Education and as a school with a well-articulated curriculum and an outstanding learning environment. As members of the California Business for Education Excellence Honor Roll, we are recognized as a school with exceptional student achievement.
Parents and community members are encouraged to participate and become involved at our school. We actively ask for your support, ideas and suggestions. Our incredible PTA organizes and funds some of our most popular programs and activities. I encourage you to get acquainted and get involved. You will find the effort enjoyable and rewarding.
We hope you will find that Brookside Elementary School is truly a place where learning is joyful and children delight in coming to school. Come learn with us!
