Brookfield Reviews

Although there are not too many events that will keep you busy in Brookfield Wisconsin, the schools are incredible and you can ensure the safety of you and your family. Most people are very friendly and it is no hard to make friends with your neighbors. There is also the Elmbrook School District which is the best way to educated any child. The teachers there are compassionate and truly want your children to succeed. I attended K5-12 through Elmbrook Schools and the teachers really prepared me for college.
I've grown up in Brookfield most of my life. It is a great city, with lots of recreational activities. It is very family friendly with lots of places to take the kids. Including fairs, petting zoos, parades, outdoor summer pool, and a nearby movie theater. The city is very safe both during the day and at night, the police patrols 24/7.
Brookfield Wisconsin, a suburb of Milwaukee, offers a safe place to attend school and live. Because the city is constantly building new shops and places to eat, there is always something to do without having to drive to downtown Milwaukee. The cost of living is reasonable but because the city is a suburb, depending on where you work, the commute may be longer.
