The teachers at Brookfield East are all incredibly dedicated to their students and their students' success, emotional well being, and opportunities. Brookfield East is invested in ensuring their students' health during this pandemic, but also ensuring that students still receive the best education possible and still have lots of safe opportunities in extra curriculars. Brookfield East could be better at supporting the arts as they currently get no funding from the district and are suffering because of it. The school does not have it's own auditorium, but completely redid a somewhat new football field for 5 million dollars.

The school district as a whole is pretty good, but there’s definitely a lot of gaps to fill. A lot of different courses are offered, and funding for early college courses is provided as well. However, too much money is spend on sports as opposed to books or updating educational programs. In my statistics class, the books are very old and from 2002, whereas we are getting a new turf football field this year. While I understand that the programs the bring in the most money are rewarded better, it seems unfair educationally do to this. Overall, Brookfield East is a great high school, and is up to par with schools like Brookfield Academy.
The teachers at East seem to really care about students and want them to be successful. Overall, East has a great athletic program, and the lunches are good too. There is also a wide variety of extracurricular available to students, along with a lot of AP courses.
