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 […]
We’re a few weeks into school, but we would be remiss not to remember all the fun had at our Freshman Retreat at the start of the year. All of our freshmen load up on buses with their Link Crew Leaders and Advisors and travel three hours north to Camp Mac in Munford, Alabama for three days of team building, fun, and adventure! With so many new freshmen entering high school, the Freshman Retreat serves an important purpose, integrating new students into the class, and it does so incredibly well! […]

We know that there are great things happening at Brookstone School on any given day, but it’s always nice to hear feedback from parents! Below is an excerpt from an email sent to Leigh Anne Floyd, our Lower and Intermediate School Principal, from one of our new families, shared with their permission. Kudos to our teachers and administrators for creating an environment as special as the one here at Brookstone. As a parent, there is nothing more gratifying than to see your child blossom and grow. My son had a […]
Middle school is one of life’s hardest seasons – even under the best of circumstances. That’s why when walking through the halls this morning, I was struck by the beauty of this simple bulletin board. Who doesn’t need some love, hope, peace, kindness, self-control, or humility? Thank you, Middle School faculty, for fostering an environment such as this. Here’s to more of all of these things flooding the hallways and classrooms of our school!
Every spring, our seniors and our faculty members go head to head in a variety of competitions that range from basketball to corn hole to flying paper airplanes! It sounds so simple, but these friendly face-offs are just another example of the strong sense of community and camaraderie that we have here at Brookstone! You just don’t get at other schools! Today was the annual Hamburger Cook-Off! And these kids take their burgers seriously! Though Coach Jimmy Thompson is quite the grill master, the seniors pulled out all the stops! […]
