Choosing a school for your child is no small decision. That’s why we want you to come visit us! Our next Open House is this Thursday, December 5th and here are five reasons you will want to come! You get to see the campus in person. The best website, the best promo items, the best videos, the best billboard – they can only convey so much! SEEING things with your own eyes makes all the difference in the world. You get to talk to people. Have questions? Get them answered. […]
Starting a new school can be an anxious time on the part of both parents and kids! And truthfully, on the part of a school, too, as we so desperately want to make sure all of our students are having a great experience. So when we hear feedback from new families that is so very encouraging, we just have to share! We LOVE our school and we love that others are loving it just as much! “I can’t tell you enough how much we are all enjoying the Brookstone experience. […]
There’s a lot of pressure in schools these days – grades, test scores, academic performance, college acceptances, etc., etc. All of these things are important, of course, but all these things can lead to stress and anxiety in our kids, too. So we need to find a balance. That’s why Friday Fundays in the Upper School are meant to bring some lighthearted levity to life! Let the kids laugh! Let the kids sing! Let them be kids! So here’s to karaoke in the rotunda! #WhyBrookstone? Friday Fundays, that’s why!
Of all the things that are on the mind of Upper School parents these days, and there is a LOT, the college admission process seems to be at the top of the list! (And if you haven’t turned on the news lately, it’s on a lot of people’s minds.) That’s why our commitment to parents is that our College Counseling office will be with you every step of the way. And that’s not just lip service. Having three children graduate from Brookstone, I can attest to that personally! Deadlines, applications, […]
Do you live in the Auburn area or do you know people who do? Then come join us or help us spread the word! We are hosting an informational meeting in Auburn next week to share all the wonderful things going on at Brookstone School. If you have friends or family in the Auburn area that you would like to invite, we would love to have them join us. For more information, see details below or email Avery Wolff.
One of the MANY reasons I love Brookstone School is because of the true commitment the school has to our kids’ well-being. The same can be said for us as parents. That’s why I am so grateful for our Brookstone Parents Association and our faculty who work together to bring speakers to campus whose knowledge and expertise will benefit us all. They are called Parent Universities. And this school year alone (as in since August!!), we’ve had Dr. Scott Hamilton, an expert in the field of learning differences and executive […]
How much homework is too much? It’s a valid question. It’s also a question I’m glad Brookstone School is not afraid to ask. Last year, our Upper School teachers began doing some research into the amount of homework students had to do each night. Obviously, there are lots of factors that go into the amount of time each student spends on homework, such as after school activities, technology, and routine bedtimes, but regardless, an informal survey of our students from last year indicated over 70% of our students said that […]
As a Brookstone alumna and parent, I’ve always thought one of the most powerful things about being a part of the Brookstone family is the relationships students and teachers share. Those relationships are an integral part of what makes Brookstone the exceptional school it is. For generations, Brookstone teachers have poured into their students in ways that have transformed lives and impacted the world. I am so blessed to have had the teachers I did during my years here as a Brookstone student, and now, to be surrounded by remarkable […]
It’s been a great first week at school, but the best is yet to come! Enjoy this video made by Leigh Anne Floyd, our Lower School Principal! We sure do love these kids!
It’s been a busy summer for our students and faculty alike! From trips and travel to teacher and team training, summer days were spent in a variety of ways! Here are just a few highlighted below!
