Meet the People

For over four decades Brookridge Day School (BDS) has fine-tuned its formula for success. The main ingredient is our people.    

We are experienced and committed to creating an environment conducive to learning.  Essentially, that’s what makes BDS a top 50 private elementary school in the U.S., 7th best in the Midwest and one of the premier private schools in Johnson County, KS. CALL US!
