We’re not just excellent MCAS results. We also teach our scholars the values they need to succeed in life.
Our supportive, transformative school culture results directly from the Brooke Core Values. They guide teachers and scholars in all aspects of school life.
Core values are reinforced throughout the school day. As kindergarteners read a book about a hard-working lightning bug, they might discuss his great focus. As third graders tackle new geometry concepts, they’ll think about teamwork as they collaborate to gain understanding. As 8th graders approach graduation, they’ll talk about the self-determination needed to make it to and through college.
In addition, our K-2 scholars start every morning with a Core Value song and group-wide discussion of the latest Core Value Challenge during Morning Motivation (see below). Our 3-8 graders use weekly Character Education lessons and Community Meetings to set personal growth goals, discuss inspiring quotes, and give shout-outs to teammates who’ve exemplified the Core Values.
All scholars are expected to show Core Values by meeting our grade-specific Character Education Standards.

Core Value Songs
Each morning our K-2 scholars enthusiastically sing our Core Value Songs to get them ready for the day. A big thank you to Mr. Scott, Brooke Roslindale second grade teacher, for writing and creating ALL our core value songs! Click on the links below to hear each song!
