Caring Relationships

Students get to know one another and develop meaningful relationships with staff through: 

  • Small learning environments
  • Family events and activities throughout the year, like carnivals and family dances
  • Regular communication, both in person and electronically, between teachers and families
  • Strong support from intervention teachers and other staff (English learners, math/reading support and more) 

Outstanding Learning Opportunities

All Stillwater Area Public Schools focus on the 4Cs – Communication, Collaboration, Critical thinking and Creativity by providing opportunities for students to solve problems through hands-on projects and real-world experiences. We consider children participants in the learning process. 

All elementary students have access to:

  • Core instruction in literacy, math, science, social studies, art, physical education, media and general music
  • Opportunities in band, orchestra and choir beginning in 5th grade
  • Responsive Classroom, where students participate in morning meetings emphasizing social, emotional, and academic growth in a strong and safe school community
  • Enrichment experiences to advance learning and challenge students
  • Special Education: reading and math interventions, English Learner program and summer Targeted Services
  • Service learning and community service projects
  • Preschool for four-year-olds (fee-based; offered through Community Education) 

My wife and I are 834 alumni and are ecstatic for our kids to be carrying on our traditions as Ponies in the new Brookview Elementary. Giving our kids the same great educational opportunity our parents gave us was a major factor in our recent move back into Ponyland.ANDREW POLEHNA, WOODBURY RESIDENT AND BROOKVIEW PARENT

Celebrate Brookview

While what we teach at Andersen is similar to other schools in the district, our school has a unique culture and community. In our first year, we're working to blend the traditions and cultures of several school buildings into one – creating a new learning environment. Join us! 

I'm excited to be joining a dynamic staff at Brookview. I'm looking forward to the halls and walls of this building being filled with laughter and learning. It is in that moment when this shiny new building will transform into a school.sherri gutzman, brookview teacher
