Welcome to Brook Avenue Elementary
Brook Avenue Elementary School reflects its street name - Brook Avenue - and is nestled within the Brook Oaks Neighborhood Association along the banks of the Brazos River. Peppered with stately oak trees, this picturesque slice of Waco boasts a rich and diverse history. Several events over the past 15 years have generated a sense of pride and ownership within the community.
Just a little over 20 years ago in 1993, the Brook Oaks Neighborhood Association was formed with the purpose to "unite and organize the community; to promote and establish closer neighborhood ties; and to encourage and assist in the restoration, preservation, and improvement of the neighborhood." Six years later in 1999, Brook Ave. Elementary was rebuilt at its current location. With a relatively new neighborhood association and elementary school, the future was bright for this north central Waco neighborhood.
It serves as one of the main hubs of activity for the community and serves the areas' children, providing a safe learning environment that is rigorous and relevant in content.
