Principal's Message

Dear Brookhurst Families, Students, and Community Members,

At Brookhurst Elementary, we are committed to preparing all students to be successful and responsible citizens who contribute and thrive in a diverse society. We are dedicated to providing a quality education to all our students within secure and supportive environments. Our teachers maximize learning by emphasizing critical thinking skills, problem solving and scholarly habits that allow students to monitor their own learning for improved academic outcomes.

Through our monthly Instructional Leadership Team Meetings, weekly collaborations and Student Study Team Meetings every 6-8 weeks, our teachers work together to ensure all students are progressing both academically and socially.

Social growth is promoted by our focus on the following character traits: responsibility, respect, courage, caring, perseverance, honesty and fairness. Excellence in academics and citizenship are recognized at our Dolphin assemblies.

We thank our dedicated and supportive parent and community members! Our volunteers regularly help inside the classroom and in the office on projects that support our students.

To maintain a strong home-school connection, parents have many opportunities to participate in school activities. We have a PTA that works as a team in fundraising activities to provide the “extras” for our students, such as: fieldtrips and special assemblies.

The Brookhurst school community makes a positive difference in the lives of children. There is no greater validation as an educator or parent than to see our students succeed.
