Growing Tomorrow's Leaders Together

Mission Statement: We, the staff of Brookside Place School, take pride in striving to personalize learning and differentiate instruction to support students spanning grades K-5 in acquiring the knowledge and requisite skills to excel as learners and productive individuals. Through a partnership of teachers, students, parents/guardians, administrators, and community members, Brookside Place School students will learn to respect others and think independently and critically.


Greetings from Brookside Place School! I hope this message finds you and your family safe and well. Certainly this school year will have different procedures from previous years, but the most important aspects remain the same: our caring compassion for each other, the dedication of our staff to the education of our students, and our supportive community of families. Whether students are engaged in virtual or in-person learning platforms, the Cranford Public School District staff and administration continue to partner on best practices for both learning environments. In addition, the safety, health and wellness of students and staff are always at the forefront of our efforts. As the 2020-2021 school year unfolds, we look forward to partnering together with our BPS families to create a fulfilling learning experience for all our students.
Take care and be well, 
Michael Klimko
