As we come to the end of another school year, we celebrate the retirement of an amazing group of educators, some of our longest serving faculty members. To say we will miss them is an understatement. These teachers have decades and decades of combined years at Brookstone. Multiply that by the number of students they have taught and the impact they have had is simply immeasurable. We wish them all the best as they move onto the next chapter of their lives, but they will always be a part of […]
As we celebrate Teacher Appreciation Week, it is only fitting to honor those teachers with an official, “Thank you.” Thank you for what you do day in and day out and for the many ways, often unacknowledged, that you pour yourselves out for the sake of your students. We simply cannot say thank you enough. Here at Brookstone, people matter. Our students matter and they know they matter. They know our teachers are FOR them, fighting for them, working on their behalf, and doing everything they can to provide the […]
Throughout this school year we have enjoyed celebrating Brookstone’s 70 anniversary – 70 years that encompass a remarkable history and vision built on a solid foundation of values. This important milestone has given us a chance to celebrate our founding, reflect on our success, revel in the sense of community we’ve built over seven decades, and imagine our next 70 years. To celebrate the 70th anniversary, we invited several people to reflect on Brookstone’s history in a video story. Two things were evident, the values that Brookstone was founded on […]
A recent social media post from one of our 5th grade teachers summed up perfectly the bond our students and teachers share here at Brookstone. She wrote: “I was on the playground with my kiddos today when one of my ‘former’ kiddos walked up and gave me a hug! As our school continues to grow, it takes engineers and brains to plan and oversee! You are looking at the TOP DOG!!! I am so proud of you, Tim! This makes it all worthwhile. Precious child; dynamic young man!!! HARD WORK […]
One of the highlights of our year is when we get to honor a few of our alumni as they are inducted into the Distinguished Alumni Society. It is a night of celebration, reflection, and gratitude toward the Brookstone School community and the ties that bind us together. The Distinguished Alumni Society Award honors those Brookstone Graduates who have made significant contributions to society and whose accomplishments, affiliations, and careers have honored the legacy of Brookstone. To be considered for the honor, recipients must be accomplished in both professional achievement […]
We are so excited to announce the start of Forest Fridays here at Brookstone this fall! What is Forest Friday? Forest Friday is a weekly class for kindergarten through third grade. The class is about connecting with nature, outdoor learning, and instilling adventure and exploration in our students. Research shows that students get minimal outdoor time and are spending more time indoors in front of screens and various other technologies. Yet other research shows that more time outdoors has a positive impact on our students’ behavior, mental health, and academics. On […]

Brookstone’s Graduation held special significance this year since it had been two years since our last full in person graduation!
