A Great Place to Grow in a Caring Community of Learners

Brookside Charter School is a tuition-free public charter school serving Pre-K through 8th grade students within the KCPS boundaries. At Brookside Charter we teach and nurture the whole child, focusing on rigorous academics and the incorporation of leadership skills, to prepare our students for success beyond our doors.
Brookside Charter is a caring community that is conducive to growth for both students and faculty. Currently we serve 700 students and will build our enrollment to serve 800 students by 2024. Because of well trained and supported faculty members, engaged families, and supportive community partners, we are poised to continue preparing our students for success in high school and beyond!
