The Brooklyn School system provides a
pre-kindergarten through grade eight program and is governed by a six
member Board of Education. Tracing its origins back to the early days of
the 20th century when the town had nine district schools, The Brooklyn
School today is a centralized district, located on Gorman Road, and
provides a comprehensive program to approximately 1,000 students. In
addition, Brooklyn sends approximately 360 students to designated high
schools, Killingly High School in Danielson and Woodstock Academy in
Woodstock, and 10-15 to other high schools. Thirty to forty students
each year attend the Harvard H. Ellis Technical School.
The Board of Education directs the operation of the school system
through an active committee structure and, when appropriate, involves
members of the school staff and community.
