Our teachers here at Brookstone are hands-down, bar-none, undeniably THE BEST. They love our kids, they encourage our kids, and they tirelessly pour out their lives into our kids. I am so grateful for each and every teacher who has been a part of my children’s lives. But our teachers are more than just really awesome people, which goes without saying. Our teachers are also professionals. And Brookstone’s commitment to professional learning and development is unsurpassed. This year alone, over the past six months, we have had teachers attend the […]

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! Mrs. Lumsden’s AP Environmental class took a field trip to the local marina looking for macro invertebrates and also because of the large amount of solid waste pollution, did a clean up while there. They found mussels and a few fish, but very few macro invertebrates. They then decided to follow up with a water quality test. As […]
It was an absolute delight to interview these students. Click here to watch their stories! Enjoy!
“This world is but a canvas to our imagination.” Henry David Thoreau Sentiments like this are one of the reasons we love to get our students outside as much as we can. Having a beautiful campus and wonderful places to gather provides many opportunities for our students and teachers to enjoy being outdoors. So as I walked to the cafeteria last week, I loved spotting Dr. Harkey’s Crime and Punishment class gathered around Courtney’s Pond and discussing Dante’s Inferno. Sometimes, just the very thing you need to inspire good conversation […]
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 […]
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 […]
The Intermediate School might just be one of the happiest places on campus! This past week, parents were invited to join in on the Morning Meeting to get a glimpse of what their children experience every day. After lots of dancing and singing, announcements were made, accolades were given, the Pledge of Allegiance was recited, and a mini spirit competition was held before sending them off to class. Wish I’d been able to start the school day this way! It was awesome! Enjoy!
What an incredible First Day of School! The pictures say it all! 2018-2019 will be the best yet! Click here to watch a video from the Lower School and here for one from the Intermediate School! #betheonewhohasagreatyear
