When Brookstone became a member of Global Online Academy in 2017, we joined a consortium of elite independent schools committed to developing students through excellent teaching and deep learning in shared, online classrooms. In fact, there are only four other schools in the state of Georgia who are members, Lovett, Savannah Country Day, and Westminster. Brookstone’s partnership with GOA allows eligible students access to specialized courses during which they engage and learn alongside students from around the world. Courses are led by teachers exclusively from member schools, and they all […]
It’s been such a treat to host students from our sister school, Petra School in Zimbabwe, on campus recently. Our partnership with Petra has continued to grow and flourish through the years. We’ve sent student groups there twice and had school administrators here at Brookstone on occasion, as well. This time, it was our turn to host students! Though they were here mostly as tennis players, traveling for intense training and exposure to American coaches, they were also here to visit Brookstone. All of our students who traveled to Zimbabwe in […]
Our Intermediate School students are just a little competitive! And they also love math! So hats off to them for being ranked 8th in the state of Georgia for the “First in Math” program!! And what is so cool about this video is that this was made and sent to serve as motivation to each other – spurring one another on to do more math! Gotta love that! Keep up the good work kids!
Upper School Club Day was last week and it was a beautiful day on the quad to hold sign ups! One of the great things about Brookstone is the ability to be involved in a variety of activities! And with over 40 clubs to choose from, from academics to sports to the arts, there truly is something for everyone! Just to name a few, there’s a club for sign-language, coding, fishing, gardening, ornithology, investment, pre-med, music, dance, and school spirit to choose from. There’s even the Happy Club! Who doesn’t […]
Fall sports are off to an awesome start! And congratulations are in order to the following athletes: In Cross Country news, a HUGE shoutout goes to senior Caleb Pattillo ran a personal best of 17:18 on August 25th at the Bob Blastow Invitational in Whitesburg, GA. To put this into perspective, this was the fastest 3.1 mile/5k time by a Brookstone runner since 1990! (Shoutout to Roger Birkhead, Class of ’91!) That’s almost 30 years in the making! Way to go, Caleb!! In football news, senior Jeremiah Burgess has received “official” […]
We’re a few weeks into school, but we would be remiss not to remember all the fun had at our Freshman Retreat at the start of the year. All of our freshmen load up on buses with their Link Crew Leaders and Advisors and travel three hours north to Camp Mac in Munford, Alabama for three days of team building, fun, and adventure! With so many new freshmen entering high school, the Freshman Retreat serves an important purpose, integrating new students into the class, and it does so incredibly well! […]
Mrs. Bone, our Middle School art teacher captured this moment this past week in her 6th-grade art class. Spontaneous singing in art class? In MIDDLE SCHOOL? Kind of awesome. And their collaborative artwork? Beautiful. Great job kiddos!
