Brook Valley School
Brook Valley School began in 1996 as the Gifford Farm Project. The original setting was a one room building on the Gifford Farm property in Bellevue. A growing enrollment prompted a move to southwest Omaha in 1999 and the new name - Brook Valley School. We serve students with severe special needs from eastern Nebraska and southwest Iowa.
