Want to see how math is made fun? Just take a peek into Mrs. Leatherwood’s 6th grade math class as they take part in some serious “operations!” From Mrs. Leatherwood: I just love to see how excited the kids are collaborating with their partners to solve some really challenging math problems, and when they get through them (the Operation) their celebration. At the beginning they sit down at the “Operation Table” and I hear them say there is no way they can solve these problems – they are huge!! (See […]

The middle school years often get a bad rap, but I am here to tell you our Middle School is amazing. I am so grateful for teachers who consistently raise the bar and make it an AWESOME place to be!

My own child, a current 6th grader, said last week, “I can’t wait to go to math today!” Well, that is just not a statement often heard out of the mouths of middle school kiddos. […]

When Brookstone became a member of Global Online Academy in 2017, we joined a consortium of elite independent schools committed to developing students through excellent teaching and deep learning in shared, online classrooms.

Brookstone’s partnership with GOA allows eligible students access to specialized courses during which they engage and learn alongside students from around the world. Courses are led by teachers exclusively from member schools, and they all […]
Our Intermediate School students are just a little competitive! And they also love math! So hats off to them for being ranked 8th in the state of Georgia for the “First in Math” program!! And what is so cool about this video is that this was made and sent to serve as motivation to each other – spurring one another on to do more math! Gotta love that! Keep up the good work kids!
