Based on the demographics shared on the National Blue Ribbon Schools profile site, Norton Elementary is more racially diverse and has more than 20% more economically disadvantaged students who attend compared to Holy Trinity.

"Brookwood Elementary is extremely proud of the hard work and dedication of the staff, students and the strong family support we receive", said Brookwood Principal Tracey Smith.
