School is BACK IN SESSION!

Today marks the start of our first full week in school, but there are so many activities happening, you would think we’ve been back for a month or more!  There are too many happenings to highlight, so I encourage you to go to our Facebook Page, Brookstone School (Official) to see all the latest news and photos! However, there is one event that truly sets us apart as a school and that is the Freshmen Retreat.  No other school in the area takes their ENTIRE freshmen class away, along with […]

Alumni Highlights!

As a proud graduate of Brookstone School and now the mother of one, I can tell you one thing, Brookstone alumni are out to leave their mark and make this world a better place.  And nothing gives me more pleasure than to showcase two of our very own that were highlighted in today’s Columbus Ledger-Enquirer. The first is Miss Brian Kalpen, Class of 2015. In January, she won the title of Distinguished Young Woman of Alabama, and just recently finished in the top ten NATIONALLY.  That is pretty remarkable.  Congratulations to you, Bria.  We […]

Graduation 2015

Graduation 2015…It was amazing. You simply could not leave campus this weekend without knowing for certain that this is an incredible school.  In fact, as an admissions director, I wish I could somehow combine our open house events with our graduation ceremony because the whole time all I could think was, I wish everyone could see this. THIS – this is what it is all about.  The end result, the grand finale, the culmination of years of hard work and perseverance, and friendship and community.  THIS is a day worth […]

End of the Year Awards

It’s awards season at school!  There are plenty of assemblies to go around and lots of awards being handed down!  But that’s a great thing because it means there are so many people worth honoring! So while all of the award recipients are worth publicly lauding, there are two in particular I am highlighting here, mainly because I am one proud mom. First, this boy, my second born, won an award for his work in his Studio Productions class. Studio Productions is one of our many elective classes and is taught by […]

Memories Made

It is impossible to highlight all the things that are happening on this busy campus during the month of May.  In fact, do we not all agree that May is by far the busiest month of the year?  However, it is busy with a lot of good things and many reasons to celebrate. A couple of highlights: Our Baseball Team What a way to end the year.  These young men represented our school so well, making it all the way to the final four in the state playoffs.  Fans packed […]

1st Grade Writing and 8th Grade Speech

Today, I got to witness two amazing things that Brookstone teaches so well – writing and speaking. First, my sweet third child gave his 8th grade speech – standing in the same spot I delivered mine nearly 30 years ago. I remember mine well.  The topic was manatees.  I don’t remember much of what I said, but I remember the round carriage of the slide projector stationed securely in the middle of the Turner Center.  My best friend advanced the slides for me manually, the projector making a noise that is […]
