Brooke Eighth Grade Academy
History and Mission
The Eighth Grade Academy Core Values are Respect, Community, Positivity, Integrity, Gratitude and Leadership.
Year founded – 2018. 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, students of color 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.
The Eighth Grade Academy (8GA) will 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 socially and academically at Brooke High School and beyond. Our staff will help our students build their knowledge in a variety of content areas, develop effective work habits, teach them how to problem solve, overcome adversity, be advocates, and become good citizens in their communities.
