It was an absolute delight to interview these students. Click here to watch their stories! Enjoy!
“This world is but a canvas to our imagination.” Henry David Thoreau Sentiments like this are one of the reasons we love to get our students outside as much as we can. Having a beautiful campus and wonderful places to gather provides many opportunities for our students and teachers to enjoy being outdoors. So as I walked to the cafeteria last week, I loved spotting Dr. Harkey’s Crime and Punishment class gathered around Courtney’s Pond and discussing Dante’s Inferno. Sometimes, just the very thing you need to inspire good conversation […]
We are so grateful to donors who continue to pour back into our school! Thank you to former parents and now current grandparents, Molly and Claude Scarbrough, who wanted to donate a “Buddy Bench!” The whole idea behind the Buddy Bench is simple – to foster friendships and inclusivity amongst our students! So if a student doesn’t have anyone to play with on the playground, they are to go and sit on the bench and wait! Other students are being taught to take notice and then join their friend on […]
When Brookstone became a member of Global Online Academy in 2017, we joined a consortium of elite independent schools committed to developing students through excellent teaching and deep learning in shared, online classrooms. In fact, there are only four other schools in the state of Georgia who are members, Lovett, Savannah Country Day, and Westminster. Brookstone’s partnership with GOA allows eligible students access to specialized courses during which they engage and learn alongside students from around the world. Courses are led by teachers exclusively from member schools, and they all […]
It’s been such a treat to host students from our sister school, Petra School in Zimbabwe, on campus recently. Our partnership with Petra has continued to grow and flourish through the years. We’ve sent student groups there twice and had school administrators here at Brookstone on occasion, as well. This time, it was our turn to host students! Though they were here mostly as tennis players, traveling for intense training and exposure to American coaches, they were also here to visit Brookstone. All of our students who traveled to Zimbabwe in […]
Our Intermediate School students are just a little competitive! And they also love math! So hats off to them for being ranked 8th in the state of Georgia for the “First in Math” program!! And what is so cool about this video is that this was made and sent to serve as motivation to each other – spurring one another on to do more math! Gotta love that! Keep up the good work kids!
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 […]
