The Brookville mission permeates the entire district in a concerted effort to prepare students for a different world than that of their parents. Brookville faculty and staff continuously focus on supporting students to succeed both in the classroom and after high school. Brookville is a rural community in the Midwest with a population of approximately 5,000. Students and families are primarily middle class; family support is strong across all grades in the district. Family and community volunteers are often visible in the buildings. Because the district is small, it has been difficult to serve all students with challenging and supportive content. Through hard work and planning, Brookville has implemented rigorous courses including Advanced Placement. These upper level courses also include opportunities for students to earn college credit without leaving the building. Simultaneously, interventions and supports for low-ability students have strengthened. Over the past eight years the Ohio Department of Education has rated the district Excellent (three years as Excellent with Distinction, the highest rating). In addition, Brookville High School has been rated in the top 100 schools in the nation by the US News and World Report for providing an excellent education for students. Brookville High School has a tradition of providing outstanding opportunities for students regardless of abilities and talents. Students like to come to school as evidenced by the 96% average attendance rate. The faculty and staff provide a solid education with the appropriate rigor and support to prepare students for success in society after high school.
