When learning is fun and engaging, students thrive! Our 8th graders have been studying kinetic and potential energy recently, so they’ve been doing some pretty “energetic” activities! Enjoy these photos from Mrs. Robertson’s science class! They’ve been building roller coasters all around the classroom and doing some pretty amazing feats with popsicle sticks!

It is our pleasure to announce that Garry Sullivan has accepted the position as Brookstone’s Head of Upper School beginning July 1, 2018. We are thrilled to welcome him to our school!

This past week, Brookstone once again hosted Cuts for a Cure, the national effort in which women and men donate their hair to make natural wigs for people suffering from cancer. Started in 2012 by Kate Wilson, Class of 2014, this event has become an incredible opportunity for students to give back in one of the most personal of ways. Kate, inspired by her own mother’s battle with breast cancer, was able to attend this year’s program as well. Click here to watch the WRBL news report from the event. This […]
Any time our Upper School students get to work alongside our Lower and Intermediate school students, it’s a special thing. And Cub Track might just be one of my all time favorite examples! For several weeks each spring, our Varsity Track team works with our younger students, teaching them the ins and outs of track and field events. This culminates in a grand track meet pitting the “Blue” and “White” teams against each other! Enjoy these pictures from the event!! The future looks bright for Brookstone Track! (And not that […]
It’s true! The Brookstone Varsity Girls Tennis team just won the area championship for the 45th year in a row! That’s correct! Every year since 1973, our girls have clinched the title – for 45 straight years! We don’t like the throw around the word “Dynasty” loosely, but I think we could make a pretty strong claim in this instance! Congratulations, girls! On to the next round!
We have been celebrating the arts this spring, and yesterday, we were fortunate to have another incredibly talented artist visit our campus. Kelly Robertson, with Calvary Glass in Atlanta, spent most of the day sharing his gift with our students. Our youngest classes enjoyed choosing colors to accentuate a lovely glass flower, while the older students listened and asked questions about the physics and chemistry of glass blowing. The results? Absolutely beautiful! Thank you to BPA and the Arts Alliance for making Kelly’s visit possible and all the many unique […]
We are so grateful for an active and engaged parent association who makes great things happen for our school. They are simply the best! Last week, the BPA invited Lee Bryan, aka That Puppet Guy, to spend a week with our students as part of our annual Literature Live event. What he did with our students was nothing short of amazing! Though he put on fun and interactive shows with all of our Lower and Intermediate School students, our 5th graders had a special opportunity. They spent the week making life […]
