About Us

From day one, Brooke leaders have been dedicated to great teaching.

Brooke Charter School founders understood that teacher quality — not socioeconomic status or race — is the #1 predictor of student achievement. They named the school for a man who exemplified the Brooke Core ValuesSenator Edward W. Brooke, the first African-American elected to the U.S. Senate and the first African American Senator from Massachusetts.

We opened our doors in 2002 to 88 5th grade scholars. In August 2006, we opened our elementary school with our first class of kindergarteners and 1st graders.

In the last several years, Brooke scholars have become some of the highest performing in the city and state. After the transformative Brooke experience, our alumni are excelling in high school and college, attending and succeeding in schools like Milton Academy, Boston Latin Academy, and University of Massachusetts – Amherst.

We focus unrelentingly on getting our scholars to and through college.

Our mission is to provide an academically rigorous public education to students from the cities of Boston and Chelsea that will ensure that they are prepared to enter into and succeed in college.
