    Brookfield Reviews

    I love living in Brookfield. It is a small town in New York. We have a school that holds 300 students from pre-k to 12th in one small building. You got more one on one time with your teachers. The only problem I have with Brookfield is everyone knows everyone so that means everyone knows your business. Other than rare privacy, Brookfield is a great little town.

    I like that it is a small town, everyone knows everyone. The school is small but really good. Not much in the town but a few places.
    There are good and bad things where I live. There's ton of nice places to go and visit, but the cost of living is just to high.
