We are proud to announce Brookstone’s first-ever Director of Fine Arts: Mr. Paul Hampton. Mr. Hampton, a theatre legend in the Columbus community, will be developing, teaching, and leading a robust schedule of programs for our students and their families. Brookstone’s commitment to the arts as an integral part of every student’s education is evident from grade 3K to 12. Whether it’s studio art classes, classroom productions, film classes, chorus, band, technical theatre classes, or advanced productions, every Brookstone student participates in and experiences the arts. We believe students must […]
We loved having Jonathan Rivers come speak to our school last week. Meeting throughout the day with the entire faculty and all students in grades 4-12, he delivered a powerful message of encouragement and motivation. What a privilege it was to have him here! He was entertaining and inspiring in every way! Once again, I am reminded of how wonderful it is and how grateful I am to be a part of a school community that is committed to personal, professional, and institutional growth. Thank you, Brookstone! It makes all the difference in the world!
Congratulations to sophomore Marianna Branch, who was recently named WLTZ Scholar Athlete of the Week! Marianna is a talented multi-sport athlete who is a leader on any team she’s a part of – and she’s only a sophomore. Not to mention she’s an academic powerhouse and one of the sweetest girls you will ever meet. (Full disclosure, I am one of her biggest fans!) Unfortunately, Marianna suffered a season ending injury a few weeks ago, but the fact that she was still awarded this honor speaks volumes about her character […]

Congratulations to the Brookstone Middle and Intermediate Reading Bowl teams! They recently competed in the 2019 Helen Ruffin Reading Bowl. Under the expert guidance of Mrs. Stacy Pease and Mrs. Mia Rice, both teams did extremely well. This was only the Middle School’s 4th year to compete, and they finished in third place. They were also the only independent Middle School to field a team. The Intermediate School team made their mark by answering the most questions correctly in each of their six rounds! Well done, Cougars! Sutton Hastings, Eve Stinson, […]
The Agri-Colga student group from Brookstone spent time recently filling the planting beds at our partner school, Fox Elementary! These upper school students are mentoring Fox students this spring teaching them how to grow their own healthy vegetables at their school. Students in the program, initiated and led by senior Emma Yancey, will go to Fox once a week after school to work with a designated group of students. We can’t see what “grows” out of this beautiful partnership!
Congratulations to senior Caleb Patillo for being chosen the Kinetic Credit Union Scholar Athlete of the Week! We are so incredibly proud of the example he sets on the athletic field and in the classroom. Caleb plans to attend Auburn University in the fall! Congratulations are well deserved!
