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 […]

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!

Servant leadership is at the heart of the Brookstone education. And over winter break, four of our upper school students had an amazing opportunity to take the lessons learned here and carry them around the world to Zimbabwe. Below is a guest blog post about the trip written by junior Graham Wolff. When I signed up to go on the Zimbabwe trip, I really did not know what to expect. I wasn’t sure if there would be lions prowling around, dirt roads everywhere, big cities, or villages. But I decided to travel […]
