The Brook Hill Middle School educates students in grades 6-8th. There are many options for middle school in Tyler, Texas and the surrounding area, but our small class sizes, focused on individual needs to prepare students for college, sets our private school apart. Most importantly, Brook Hill is a Christian school, and our Christ-centered environment helps students find their identity in Christ and discover the gifts and talents we believe are God-given.

The faculty and staff in the middle work diligently to prepare each student for the next level of their education, leading to success in college and beyond. As a Christian school, we strive to create a culture of genuine love and care. We hope that this trains up our students in a nurturing environment, and that our private school develops students that are prepared, challenged, affirmed, and encouraged in body, mind, and spirit. We see successful and happy students moving onward to excellence and success as we partner with families in the growth and development of their children. We hope that we can partner with your family in this endeavor as well.

Why Choose Brook Hill?

Middle School is one of the most critical times in a child’s life. Our experienced faculty and staff are dedicated to helping students grow educationally, personally, and spiritually! Learn more about the distinctives of our Middle School and why it is right for you at the link below!
