The 3,700 Boston Public Schools families on the Brooke wait list are eager for a better opportunity.
These wait-listed students lack access to high-quality educational options. We have over 4,000 families on our combined waiting lists – that’s NOT double counting families who are on multiple Brooke waiting lists. That’s 4,000+ different families. This number, combined with the already enrolled Brooke families, represents roughly 10% of all the families in the Boston Public Schools.
Together, the three Brooke K-8 Schools and our newly opened high school serve roughly 1,600 low-income Boston-area students. These schools provide our scholars the excellent academics and strong character foundation needed to make it to – and through – college.
The network will also serve as a nationwide proof that great teaching can close the achievement gap. School, district, and political leaders will take note of the excellent results at the Brooke Charter Schools Network. Our impact will ripple out beyond our 1,600 scholars, impacting policy and school decision-making in low-income urban districts across the state and country.
As we grow, we will make ongoing investments in dissemination, sharing our curriculum, our teaching and learning standards, our operational processes, and other best practices with schools looking to achieve Brooke-level results.
