Brooke East Boston
Our vision for this school is the same vision that has led to excellent results at the original Brooke School. This vision is shaped not only by what we believe, but also by what research has proven. Research tells us that the number one predictor of student achievement isn’t race. It isn’t socio-economic status. The best lever that we have to help low-income and minority students succeed in college is the same one that is most effective in helping all students achieve, regardless of their backgrounds: quality teaching in bigger doses.
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.
We opened the doors of Brooke East Boston in August 2012 to Kindergarten, first, and fifth grade classes and in August 2015 reached full-enrollment. At Brooke, students are closing the achievement gap and exceeding expectations for even Massachusetts’ highest performing students.
