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!
It’s Christmas time and even though final exams are in full swing, there is a festive feeling around campus! Here are a few snapshots from campus celebrations! The faculty celebrated with breakfast and a rousing game of “Who’s the Boss?” Our division heads and their respective administrative assistants took on one another in a head to head challenge! Upper School technology teacher and guidance counselor, Jacob Crowder, was our emcee and he took his duties very seriously! We also had a special guest show up in carpool later that morning […]
Last week, on Wednesday, November 28th, a number of faculty and 50 students took part on a field trip to Montgomery, AL to visit the Legacy Museum followed by a visit at the Equal Justice Initiative (ELJ).

One of the highlights was being able to visit with Kuntrell Jackson, who was featured […]

This year alone, over the past six months, we have had teachers attend the […]

Sometimes there are so many great things going on to share them all, so consider this a compilation of a few, but not all, of things going on in the Upper School! Mrs. Lumsden’s AP Environmental class took a field trip to the local marina looking for macro invertebrates and also because of the large amount of solid waste pollution, did a clean up while there. They found mussels and a few fish, but very few macro invertebrates. They then decided to follow up with a water quality test. As […]
