Brockbank Junior High School was built in 1950, with the science building being built in 2000. The schools namesake was Taylor Park Brockbank. The school mascot was originally the “Bees”, but in 1973 it was changed to the “Braves”. For the past decade Brockbank has been on the cutting edge with teaching and technology.
