Field Trip to the Legacy Museum and Equal Justice Initiative

Last week, on Wednesday, November 28th, a number of faculty and 50 students took part on a field trip to Montgomery, AL to visit the Legacy Museum followed by a visit at the Equal Justice Initiative (ELJ). EJI was founded by Bryan Stevenson, author of our 2018 all-school-read Just Mercy.

Actual Upper School Insights

Sometimes there are so many great things going on to share them all, so consider this a compilation of a few, but not all, of things going on in the Upper School!

Angst: Raising Awareness Around Anxiety

Here at Brookstone, we feel it is important to equip our families with tools they need to navigate the various aspects of raising kids, and that often extends beyond academics.  I am grateful for a school that offers educational opportunities for both parents and students on relevant topics that we all deal with on a daily basis.
