Founded in 2016

Brooke High sees our students from kindergarten to college and beyond

In August of 2016, we opened Brooke High School with a founding class of 9th grade students in a temporary space in Dorchester. Two years later, Brooke High has moved to its new and permanent location. Within our new, state of the art 90,000 square-foot facility, both the high school and Eighth Grade Academy are adjacent to our Brooke Mattapan campus. 

We are now fulfilling our long-term vision to usher Brooke students to the doorstep of college and through to college graduation. Brooke High School currently serves over 390 students in grades nine through twelve.

With a focus on college success,

We aim for Brooke High to be the number one open enrollment public high school in Massachusetts.

By continuing to focus on great teaching – guaranteeing that each student is challenged and known by her or his teachers — Brooke High School will provide students an exceptional secondary education.

At full enrollment, Brooke High School will serve 600 students from Boston and Chelsea in grades 9-12. Students from all three Brooke campuses – Brooke Roslindale, Brooke Mattapan, and Brooke East Boston — will be guaranteed a seat at Brooke High School.

Our rigorous curriculum, excellent teaching and wide offering of sports, clubs and community-building experiences will ensure that students have the skills and confidence to identify as high achievers who can navigate any challenge. It is an absolute privilege to be able to take our students to the doorstep of college.
