It’s so much fun to see these “New Brookstone Cougar” signs popping up around Columbus and the surrounding area! We can’t wait to see all of these smiling faces (wearing masks!) back on campus soon! Go Cougars!
One of the many reasons the Brookstone community is so special is because of our amazing families. And those families stand ready to welcome all the NEW families to Brookstone each year! So if you are one of those new families, allow me to introduce our Virtual Host Families for the 2020-2021 school year! Unique times call for unique ways to connect and this is a new way for us to do so this year! Look over the names and info below and feel free to reach out to any […]
We are all longing for a bit of normalcy these days! Remember way back when – when we were in classrooms and on campuses? Oh – the good old days – days we certainly hope to return to soon! With that in mind, we wanted to highlight one of our sweetest Lower School classes – our Kindergarten – and reflect on all of the ways it is so special here at Brookstone! So what makes Kindergarten at Brookstone so special? Our Head of Lower School, Leigh Anne Floyd writes, Kindergarten […]

A message from Leigh Anne Floyd, our Lower School Principal. We began this unusual distance learning journey together over six weeks ago. None of us knew what to expect during this unprecedented event, and all of us – the teachers, parents, and students – were apprehensive. Even with these unsettled feelings, we started strong! We all started strong and determined to make this new set of circumstances work – and we did. You did. Your children did. And we did it well. Even though every single one of us has […]
If there is anything the past two months have taught us, it’s that our teachers are the ABSOLUTE BEST IN THE WORLD! We are so grateful! And to show them just a little token of that appreciation, our Brookstone Parents Association surprised all of our faculty members with “thank you” yard signs and some well-deserved goodies. Our teachers have worked tirelessly to ensure that our students remain connected and engaged and have continued to learn, grow, and thrive! They are heroes in my book every single day! Thank you, Brookstone […]
Week Six is in the books for Brookstone DLP and it’s hard to believe how quickly this year is coming to a close.

Brookstone Heroes Once again, it is an honor to thank the many Brookstone family members […]

We are proud to present the Brookstone Spring Arts Show as a virtual gallery. Brookstone has a long history of excellence in the arts. Students from 3K-12 are introduced to art in ways that ignite the imagination and explore a variety of mediums. In the age of COVID-19, this virtual tour will allow families to experience this years’ collection in a welcoming environment that inspires and delights. This is an unprecedented and challenging time; however, celebrating our students’ achievements in visual art continues. Student work includes examples of basic drawing, figure drawing, painting, and […]
