The educational component of Brookfield Elementary is designed to provide an intensive and grade-level academic curriculum with a successful model for therapeutic health and socialization opportunities that promotes each student’s return to their original school district. Our priority is to facilitate the learning process. Additionally, we hope each Brookfield student will return to their district with an increased awareness of appropriate social behavior, greater self-esteem, and more positive social interactions.
At Brookfield Elementary, a program of behavior modification using a 100-point system is in place. A written report is sent home daily and the positive reward system offers students the opportunity to earn daily, weekly and monthly rewards, trips, and purchases at the school store. The goal is to change the behavior of the students so they will be able to confidently interact within their environment.
Brookfield Elementary services encompass more than just the educational component and include:
• Individual and group counseling
• Creative therapies (art, play, cooking, gardening)
• Parent and family counseling and consultation
