Brookridge day Schoo hits top 50 Best Private Elementary Schools in the U.S.” (2015-2016)
We’re bursting with pride! Brookridge Day School has been named to The Best Schools (TBS) listing of The 50 Best Private Elementary Schools in the U.S.
Brookridge Day School has operated as an accredited private school in Overland Park, Kansas since 1968. Our school is consistently ranked in the top 5% of all Kansas schools for excellence in reading and math. We currently have an enrollment of 250 students and are able to keep teacher- student ratios well below those typically seen in other schools.
Our school was founded by Dr. Carol Savage. Dr. Savage was a pioneer with the “Head Start” early education program. Her focus was whole-child development, which remains a guiding principal of the school more than four decades later.
“Brookridge Day School’s mission and philosophy has stood the test of time. Character development remains at the core of the Brookridge Way. The students take pride in being held to high standards of achievement, effort, integrity, and leadership. There is an understanding at Brookridge Day School that providing a solid foundation for learning gives children the tools needed to achieve their full potential. This advantage affords students the opportunity to excel, become responsible, and gain self-confidence. The end result is that our graduates are well-rounded and prepared for whatever stands before them,” said Barbara Brown, Elementary Principal.
“We are honored to be included in this prestigious listing,” Brown went on to say. “It further validates what we do, every day, and gives our community a huge sense of pride.”
