And a huge thank you goes to our Upper School thespians for putting on a “spooktacular” event for our Lower and Intermediate School students to enjoy! Happy Halloween!

We’ve been in school for seven weeks now and we felt it was time to share the gratitude our parents feel for our teachers! Being a teacher in the best of times is always full of challenges, but teaching during a pandemic, balancing in-person and virtual learning, has elevated everything to new levels. So the least we can do is to THANK THEM! Because they are pouring themselves out on behalf of our children and we are so incredibly grateful for the work they do every day. So below are […]
College counseling, just like so many other aspects of school, might look different this fall in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, but that doesn’t mean our counselors are any less committed to seeing our families through the process. In addition to “hosting” college admissions counselors who are meeting with our students via zoom on a weekly basis, the college office is committed to being there for parents, too. So if you are a parent of a member of the Class of 2021, we hope you will take advantage of the […]
Ms. Marie Clepper, a fixture in the Upper School for generations and beloved by all, has officially retired from Brookstone School.

At the time, she had three school-aged children and was looking for work that would align with their schedules so she took a position as a fourth-grade teacher’s aid. She served the school in several capacities […]

For me, I was entering my third year in the U.S.A. as an international student, playing tennis at CSU. I remember walking into my first class of the day with a few students who were […]
