The Agri-Colga student group from Brookstone spent time recently filling the planting beds at our partner school, Fox Elementary! These upper school students are mentoring Fox students this spring teaching them how to grow their own healthy vegetables at their school. Students in the program, initiated and led by senior Emma Yancey, will go to Fox once a week after school to work with a designated group of students. We can’t see what “grows” out of this beautiful partnership!

They found mussels and a few fish, but very few macro invertebrates. They then decided to follow up with a water quality test. As […]
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. In fact, there are only four other schools in the state of Georgia who are members, Lovett, Savannah Country Day, and Westminster. 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 […]
Upper School Club Day was last week and it was a beautiful day on the quad to hold sign ups! One of the great things about Brookstone is the ability to be involved in a variety of activities! And with over 40 clubs to choose from, from academics to sports to the arts, there truly is something for everyone! Just to name a few, there’s a club for sign-language, coding, fishing, gardening, ornithology, investment, pre-med, music, dance, and school spirit to choose from. There’s even the Happy Club! Who doesn’t […]
When learning is fun and engaging, students thrive! Our 8th graders have been studying kinetic and potential energy recently, so they’ve been doing some pretty “energetic” activities! Enjoy these photos from Mrs. Robertson’s science class! They’ve been building roller coasters all around the classroom and doing some pretty amazing feats with popsicle sticks!

The Brookstone Robotics Team, made up of nine students, hosted a tournament this past weekend. Ten teams from around the south Georgia area participated. Brookstone finished second in the meet and is well-positioned to make a run for the state tournament! Congratulations to these young engineers! It’s amazing what they can build! #betheonewhoinnovates
