Even though summer is thoroughly underway, we wanted to share this Upper School “Year in Review” that was sent to our parents from Mr. Garry Sullivan, Head of Upper School, at the conclusion of the school year. It has a lot of great information and much worth sharing. Enjoy! THE YEAR IN REVIEW My goal is to uphold Brookstone’s reputation as The Independent School of Columbus, and I truly believe we are the best school, public or private, in the Columbus area. To make sure we are always striving for […]
We are so blessed to have the greatest group of parents and grandparents as part of our Brookstone family! So we were thrilled to hear from one of our own after this year’s commencement exercises. Don Murphy, a marriage and family therapist and devoted grandfather, was so kind to jot down some reflections after this year’s ceremony and even kinder to allow me to share. Enjoy his thoughtful and sweet summary of the weekend’s events! GRADUATION OBSERVED Among the iconic images of American graduations is that of mortarboards being gleefully tossed […]
Last night was a great night for Brookstone at the Page One awards!

Blue and White Day and Country Fair were both held last week! Both of these long-held traditions spotlight what an awesome thing it is to be all one school – from 3K-12th Grade! Opening Ceremonies and a few of the indoor events were held in the gym before moving the games outside. There was a fierce battle between the Blue and the White Teams, with events being hard fought and won, but this year, the Blue team pulled through in the end and clinched the title! But more than who […]
Twenty-six years ago, a school record was set in the girls 4x400m. Just last week, these strong young women – Wells Roberts, Eva Sullivan, Anna Kate Helton, and Adrianna Hamilton – decimated that record, setting a new one of their own. The best part? With two freshman and two juniors, they’ll be back next year. To set even more records. Kudos to Coach Crowder and his staff for encouraging and pushing these student-athletes to do their best.
This past week was spectacular on our campus! The sun was shining, the birds were chirping and everything beautiful about spring was in the air! As we prepared for the annual Spring Arts Festival, our fabulous fine arts department brought art and music outside for everyone to enjoy! So classes of all kinds ventured outdoors, relishing the warmer weather, and learning from the beautiful environment that makes up our campus. It also was time for our third annual Market on the Quad! Gorgeous flowers and delicious homemade goods were on […]
Over spring break, 27 energetic Upper School students joined our two college counselors, Frances Berry and Jon Terrell, for our 18th Annual College Tour. That’s right! 18 years of college tours. That is impressive. Each year, our college counseling office takes a group of students to visit more than a dozen colleges on one of three routes. The 2019 tour focused on many of the schools in the Carolinas – going to 14 in total! That’s 14 schools in one week! Furman University Clemson University Wofford College University of South […]
