Brookwood Christian School is considered a language learning disability school. It has been my family's experience that Brookwood is a language learning ABILITY school. Our son Blake was 8 when he started at Brookwood in September of last year. After attending public school for 4 years plus August of this past school year he still could barely recognize his own name and could read nothing. We were told by the school system he was mentally retarded and that he would never learn to read. They were going to place him in special education only classes where he would be allowed to pass from grade to grade until he aged out of the school and then would graduate with a special education diploma. He would be sent into adulthood unable to read or write. We found Brookwood and immediately contacted them. We knew immediately upon meeting with the Kim, that God had placed this school and its staff in our lives. In the 8 months that Blake was there last year he learned to begin reading. His test scores showed extreme progress. This school loves its children and has a true and genuine desire to see that each child is given the opportunity to grow to their full potential. As the parents of a child with with auditory processing disorder and several other special needs we were determined to give our son every opportunity we could for him to succeed. We are confident that Brookwood was the key that opened the door for our son to have everything he needs for success. Don't let your child struggle another day, call Brookwood and let them help you. - Shan, Julie, and Blake Burnette
My daughter will be graduating from Brookwood this coming year. Seven years ago, we were shopping for a school for her.
Every school we interviewed was eager to walk us past their awards case and boast of their achievements.
When we came to Brookwood, the first words out of the principal's mouth were, "Tell me about your daughter.". After a lengthy discussion about my little girl's strengths and weaknesses, her ambitions and dreams, and plans to make them happen. Only then did she tell us about Brookwood.
We've been there ever since.
I taught public school for 30 years, but I stopped because the emphasis was no longer on educating the child but testing and having to teach a scripted lesson. At BCLS, we teach individual students based on their needs and interests. I absolutely love it!
Brookwood Christian School does not get my endorsement because they discriminate against children with life threatening peanut allergies and refuse to make any reasonable accommodations and deny admissions based on this allergy. When informed about her peanut allergy the principal of this school told us my daughter would have to "handle this on her own" and that she would be responsible for wiping down tables after other children that ate peanut butter. Every reasonable accommodation I suggested was not considered and the principal stated she didn't want the liability. I was so shocked and disappointed that this school had no reasonable allergy plan in place and had such little empathy toward my daughter's allergy. Needless to say my daughter ( and me) left in tears because of the attitude and lack of understanding toward this life threatening allergy that affects so many kids.
Brookwood Christian was the answer to many tears and prayers. Both of my girls have Learning Disabilities and the public school system was failing them. Within a short period after arriving at Brookwood, we began to see changes not only in success with learning, but in their behaviors as well. The tears and tantrums at homework time no longer exist. Each staff member at Brookwood is invested personally in the children. They provide a caring and compassionate atmosphere that allows children to learn on their level, without the added pressure of "performing" for standardized tests. I can't imagine a better atmosphere for children to learn.
Top notch environment for my child with Autism who was struggling with being "odd or different" in the public school. Our 1st year, our experience from every teacher was as God commanded 'to love thy neighbors as ourselves'. Daily devotionals instilled Christ's love for us, regardless of our abilities or disabilities, while living in a broken world. Very happy with the education designed specifically for the exact level each child is at for each subject
Brookwood Christian School has been the greatest thing that has happened to my son. My son has Auditory Processing Disorder and was unable to learn to read in public schools. He has been at Brookwood Christian School for a month and a half and is already reading!! I could not be happier! It's nice to see my son so proud of himself!!
