Fall sports are off to an awesome start! And congratulations are in order to the following athletes: In Cross Country news, a HUGE shoutout goes to senior Caleb Pattillo ran a personal best of 17:18 on August 25th at the Bob Blastow Invitational in Whitesburg, GA. To put this into perspective, this was the fastest 3.1 mile/5k time by a Brookstone runner since 1990! (Shoutout to Roger Birkhead, Class of ’91!) That’s almost 30 years in the making! Way to go, Caleb!! In football news, senior Jeremiah Burgess has received “official” […]
Mrs. Bone, our Middle School art teacher captured this moment this past week in her 6th-grade art class. Spontaneous singing in art class? In MIDDLE SCHOOL? Kind of awesome. And their collaborative artwork? Beautiful. Great job kiddos!
One of the greatest things we’ve implemented here in our Lower and Intermediate School this year has been the door greeters. Designated students are asked to serve as greeters for their respective classes or division each week just to start off each day with a friendly hello. Nothing cuter in the world! Hope you have a great day!
The Intermediate School might just be one of the happiest places on campus! This past week, parents were invited to join in on the Morning Meeting to get a glimpse of what their children experience every day. After lots of dancing and singing, announcements were made, accolades were given, the Pledge of Allegiance was recited, and a mini spirit competition was held before sending them off to class. Wish I’d been able to start the school day this way! It was awesome! Enjoy!
What an incredible First Day of School! The pictures say it all! 2018-2019 will be the best yet! Click here to watch a video from the Lower School and here for one from the Intermediate School! #betheonewhohasagreatyear

Graduation is an emotional time for parents. It’s a time of joy and celebration, but it is also marked with wistful reflection over how quickly time goes. This year, one of our faculty members wrote a heartfelt email to her colleagues upon the graduation of her oldest child. It was so beautifully written, I asked her if I could post it here. Thank you, Deana (aka Mama D), my sweet friend, for sharing these kind words with us. We love the Graham family! My friends, After all of the crying […]
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 […]
Several Brookstone students were recognized at the Ledger-Enquirer Page One Awards held at the River Center for Performing Arts this past week. Congratulations are in order for the following winners: Will Byrd, math, Elim Lee, English, Maylyn Hinson, runner-up, foreign language. What an amazing accomplishment for these fine young people.

We have been celebrating the arts this spring, and yesterday, we were fortunate to have another incredibly talented artist visit our campus. Kelly Robertson, with Calvary Glass in Atlanta, spent most of the day sharing his gift with our students. Our youngest classes enjoyed choosing colors to accentuate a lovely glass flower, while the older students listened and asked questions about the physics and chemistry of glass blowing. The results? Absolutely beautiful! Thank you to BPA and the Arts Alliance for making Kelly’s visit possible and all the many unique […]
