Teaching at Brooke Charter Schools Is Different

Brooke’s professional development is multifaceted and continuous

Our principals are instructional leaders who support teachers with weekly observations and feedback, video analysis, and formal professional development sessions.

Professional Development

Brooke teachers collaborate to create lessons that push students to do the thinking

When asked what support they value the most, Brooke teachers consistently highlight collaborating with their peers every week to review data, interpret learning standards, and plan lessons.

Effective Instruction

Brooke teachers successfully generate great results for our scholars

Every year, Brooke students outperform their peers in Boston and in many more privileged suburban districts; our success and positive culture feed into high levels of student and teacher retention year over year.

Student Achievement

Brooke's compensation system values all teachers and pays a premium to those who stay in the classroom long-term

Our thoughtful and transparent compensation system is designed to reward excellence and encourage a commitment to teaching long-term. Over time, successful Brooke teachers significantly eclipse their earning potential in neighboring districts.

As a former teacher, I know that teaching is most successful when teachers are able to focus on what truly matters: the instruction itself. As such, the Operations team works to provide the supports teachers need to deliver excellent instruction every day.

Allyson Taylor Director of Operations, Brooke Mattapan

Our approach to fostering great teaching is built on a foundation of research-based best practices in education.

Every Brooke campus:

  1. Provides more time on instruction (through a longer school day and school year, Brooke students have 35% more learning time than students in Boston Public Schools)
  2. Ensures a safe and orderly learning environment
  3. Celebrates a positive, achievement-focused school culture
  4. Implements strong organizational supports and resources for teachers
