School Overview

Kindness and compassion foster a positive, warm and inclusive school environment at Brookside Elementary School.

The Brookside community challenges and inspires all students to demonstrate high levels of achievement, responsible citizenship and a lifelong love of learning. With an emphasis on accepting its beautiful diversity, Brookside students are empowered with the academic and social emotional tools they need for future success.

Brookside families are offered traditional classroom settings led by highly qualified certified teachers and inclusive co-taught classroom settings led by both special education and general education teachers. Multilingual learners have access to dual-language classroom settings to support bilingualism and bi-literacy skills in both English and Spanish.

Unique to Brookside School is the Montessori Pathway. Based on self-directed activity, Montessori style focuses on hands-on learning and collaborative play. The Montessori program is one of four public Montessori programs in the state of Connecticut.

Children make creative choices in their learning, while the classroom and highly trained teachers offer age-appropriate activities to guide the individual's learning and social development process. The program is currently open to Brookside families only. Montessori classrooms are divided into multi-age groupings based on each child's stage of development.
