Edward Brooke Charter School

Mission Statement

Our mission is to 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 in college.

Description

Brooke is founded on one core belief: Great Teaching Closes the Achievement Gap.

Brooke Charter Schools is a network of three K-8 public, charter schools dedicated to closing the achievement gap in the Greater Boston area. Brooke students are 94% minority and 80% qualify for free or reduced-price lunch. For nearly a decade, we have steadily expanded to provide more and more students with the quality education they deserve. In the latest report by Stanford University's CREDO center, researchers found that the typical student in a Boston charter (about 13 percent of the state's charter students) gained more than twelve months of additional learning per year in reading and thirteen months greater progress in math - in addition, Brooke Charter Schools was named one of the nation's top charter school networks. The original Brooke School (Brooke Roslindale) serves 475 students in grades K-8. In August 2011, Brooke opened a second school (Brooke Mattapan) in a temporary location in South Boston, serving students in grades K-8, with plans to move to a permanent location in 2014. In August 2012, Brooke opened its third K-8 school (Brooke East Boston), with plans to grow to full size (475 students in grades K-8) by 2015. This rate of growth makes Brooke the largest and fastest growing charter school network in Boston.
