Brookfield High School is a public high school serving the town of Brookfield, Fairfield County, Connecticut, United States. The school offers a wide variety of co-curricular and extra-curricular activities, and is frequently ranked by U.S. News & World Report as one of the top high schools in Connecticut and the United States.[2] Brookfield is one of the twenty-one school districts in District Reference Group B.[3]

In the 2012–2013 school year the school had 918 students. The ethnic makeup of the student body is approximately 90% Caucasian, 1.9% Black, 4.0% Asian, and 3.8% Hispanic.

History[edit]

The school was originally built in 1962 as Long Meadow Hill Junior High School. Less than 10 years later, it was converted to a high school and graduated its first class in 1967. It has had a number of additions. In 1967, a 3-floor section was added. In 1974, a new auditorium and a second gym were added. Another wing was later added (unsure of when). The most recent expansion was in 2007. It included a new video production studio and two new wings, the library was made bigger, and the existing classrooms were updated (completed in early 2008). The football field and track was redone shortly thereafter. In August 2009, the student parking lot was repaved. In 2016, the new basketball gym was repainted and waxed. Later, in 2017, the roof was completely reconstructed.

Sports[edit]

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

Brookfield High School is a member of the South West Conference. Commonly referred to as the SWC, Brookfield competes with 12 other local schools.
