Brooksfield School Reports 82 Percent of Public Schools Are Failing Children

Brooksfield School presents a new approach to learning, one that is founded on the Montessori method while taking it to the next level


McLean, VA -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/13/2014 -- According to Department of Education Secretary Arne Duncan, 82 percent of public schools fail in their primary goal of educating children. Experts believe this is due in large part to the fact that, thanks to the No Child Left Behind Act, school cannot take into account their unique racial and income level makeup. Brooksfield School solves this problem, by treating each child as unique and nurturing their individual gifts.

"Children deserve the best when it comes to their education, yet public schools aren't providing what they want and need. Brooksfield School provides an enthusiastic and positive attitude and treats each child as an individual, while encouraging teamwork. Nature remains the teacher and the guide at all times, and all at the school treasure the wonder and magic of life," Sarah Krawchuck, school spokesperson, declares.

Mary Anne Duffus founded Brooksfield School with the purpose of offering a Montessori curriculum that allows children to learn through discovery, taking full advantage of the arts and the great outdoors. Children participate in exciting opportunities and adventures to foster their individual thinking skills, risk taking, imagination, self-confidence and more. Children attending the school find they have more respect for themselves, others around them, and the environment, and all leave with a love of learning that will help carry them through life.

"Each child comes with their own unique talents and gifts. Educators at the school strive to help the child find the wonder within themselves. Opportunities are presented each day that allow children to reach their full potential, while still allowing them to be children. Stimulating experiences, self-discovery and mutual friendships allow for more learning, and Brooksfield school encourages this at all times," Krawchuck continues. To learn more, visit
