12 Parent Reviews for Edward Brooke Charter School

I was really disappointed with this school. They do not value family life. They have extended hours and extended homework after school which makes it impossible to have a home life. It is apparent by their policies that they have little regard for parents and believe that inner-city parents are incapable ...  Read more

My daughter started going to BCS august of this year, and I must say I am very impress. within 2 months my daughter started to read. Teachers are dedicated to excellence. There is a heavy emphasis on academics and family involvement in homework.

Edward Brooke is the worse school I ever been apart of. It lack the resource and trained staff as a regular school. It seems as though they have their own set of rules and standards. And if you have a child with social, emotional or behavioral issues you are kicked out. Instead of them helping the family ...  Read more

I am very disappointed this site allows the posting of racist reviews. As the parent of a kindergartener at the newly opened, highly diverse East Boston campus, I can assure you the behavioral expectations are the same regardless of race. The teachers are enthusiastic and dedicated to helping each ...  Read more

My children started this school in K2 and now in 2nd grade. In comparison to children their age in the city and suburbs it is apparent this school is developing advanced children academically and socially.

The students including kindergarterns are treated like modern day criminals and are penalize for everything. There is no room ...  Read more

I was part of EBCS' 1st graduating class and I attended grades 5-8. Coming from a BPS I thought that I was being over worked and that the school was too advance for me. As the years went along I came to find that the years begin to get easier & easier. It wasn't just that I was understanding what I was ...  Read more

My son just started to attend this school in August 08. So far, I really don't like the school and neither does my son. I know that they say it is a strict school, but I have noticed that every interaction that the teachers or elementary school principal has with the kids borders being rude and condenscending. ...  Read more

I feel so blessed that my child was able to get a space in this school. EWBCS is a excellent school. The school is strict, but if your child will learn. The day and school year are long and there is homework every night. Everyone at the school knows your name, your child and will always go the extra ...  Read more
