For the past two years, Brookstone’s Agri-Colga Club, which manages the vegetable gardens outside our cafeteria, has been going to Fox Elementary School every Tuesday after school to develop an on-campus garden. Working together with the same group of 4th and 5th graders, the students have built six raised beds at Fox and have implemented planting and harvest plans, teaching the students how to plant and grow their own vegetables. Recently, the WC Bradley Company and Columbus Food Oasis (the local chapter of Georgia Organics which promotes healthy, local food for our […]
Last week was a beautiful celebration of all things art – music, song, and celebration of the holiday spirit! It was the best SIGHTS AND SOUNDS OF THE SEASON ever – joyful and joy-filled! 160 students, of all ages, took to the stage, and art pieces by more than four hundred students were on display!

Our students are filled with amazing talent and we have the […]

So when we hear feedback from new families that is so very encouraging, we just have to share! We LOVE our school and we love that others are loving it just as much! “I can’t tell you enough how much we are all enjoying the Brookstone experience. […]
Over Homecoming this year, we had the privilege of inducting our 7th Class of Distinguished Alumni. These well-deserving honorees are nominated by their peers and voted on by a committee made up of fellow Brookstone Alumni. Each and every year, we stand in amazement at what they have accomplished. This year’s recipients were Catherine Biggers Trotter, Class of 1973, Deana Bass Williams, Class of 1991, and Timothy Collins Wilson, Class of 1979 (awarded posthumously). Their bios and accomplishments are below, but truly, words alone do not do justice to the […]

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! Our teachers are engaged, enthusiastic, and committed to creating an environment that makes learning fun. 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. […]
