Brookfield High School is a public high school in Brookfield, Fairfield County, Connecticut. In the 2006-2007 school year the school had roughly 1000 students. This steep increase was due to one of the largest freshman classes ever, with over 300 people. Ethnically the students are approximately 97% Caucasian, 0.12% Black, 0.3% Asian, and 2.6% Hispanic.

The school is located at 45 Longmeadow Hill Road. Recently, a new library, video production studio, and two new wings were added as the existing rooms were updated. In August 2009, the senior parking lot was repaved. The school is no longer under continuous construction.

In the 2009-2010 school year, Brookfield High School switched to block scheduling. Eight class periods are spread over two days, termed "A" and "B" days, with four class periods in a day. Classes then meet every other day. This allows more time for instruction and activities during class and homework outside of class.

The school mascot is the Bobcat and the school colors are blue and gold. Both white and black have also been used in team uniforms.
