Brooke 8th Grade Academy

Coming August 2018!

In August of 2018, Brooke will welcome its inaugural class to the 8th Grade Academy.  Due to increased enrollment at our K-8 campuses, we are converting Brooke Roslindale, Brooke Mattapan, and Brooke East Boston to K-7 campuses and launching the Brooke 8th Grade Academy, solely devoted to 8th grade students and families. The 8th Grade Academy will also uniquely prepare and serve students transitioning from their elementary campuses into high school. 

At the Brooke 8th Grade Academy, students will develop effective study skills, time management skills, and personal regulation required for high school success.  They will hone their reading skills to tackle high school-level fiction and non-fiction texts, develop their abilities to thinking critically and articulate that thinking in oral and written form, engage in rigorous pre-Algebra or Algebra math courses, and deepen their science knowledge.  In addition, students will continue twice-weekly computer science instruction to prepare them for computer science at Brooke High and take twice-weekly Spanish courses to prepare them for high school Spanish courses. Brooke 8th Grade academy students will continue to receive the personal support and care (both academically and personally) that are the hallmarks of a Brooke education.
