Along with our desire to see kids PLAYING, we have thoroughly enjoyed the photos from our kiddos taking part in Mrs. Floyd’s Top 10 Summer Challenge! Keep up the good work, kids! Go play outside, laugh with a friend, jump in a puddle, or have a dance party! Enjoy every minute of sweet summer time!
As a child growing up on a dairy farm in the small town of Madison, Georgia, my friends and I spent our days entertaining ourselves outdoors. We only came home for a few minutes to grab a bite to eat before racing back outside to find something else to climb, ride, or even burn. No, I was not lighting the neighbor’s storage shed on fire. However, I had a blast seeing how many small things I could burn using a magnifying glass. Take a minute and think back to your […]
Even though summer is thoroughly underway, we wanted to share this Upper School “Year in Review” that was sent to our parents from Mr. Garry Sullivan, Head of Upper School, at the conclusion of the school year. It has a lot of great information and much worth sharing. Enjoy! THE YEAR IN REVIEW My goal is to uphold Brookstone’s reputation as The Independent School of Columbus, and I truly believe we are the best school, public or private, in the Columbus area. To make sure we are always striving for […]

Enjoy his thoughtful and sweet summary of the weekend’s events! GRADUATION OBSERVED Among the iconic images of American graduations is that of mortarboards being gleefully tossed […]
Graduation 2019 was one for the books. It was a week of festivities and jubilation starting with the Alumni March and culminating in Commencement. Every year, it is a beautiful week full of tradition, ceremony, and celebration. On Thursday evening before graduation, the Senior Faculty award dinner was held at the Rivermill Event Center. As always, the event was lovely in every way and a fitting way to honor our graduates and commend them for their hard work and accomplishments. Then on Saturday morning, Baccalaureate was held in our Illges […]
Yesterday morning was one of those mornings that just made you smile. It was one of those times where you remember all the reasons you love this school and how great it is to be a part of it. We started the morning with our annual Yearbook Assembly, where the students unveiled this year’s book, featuring the most beautiful artwork by local artist, Helen Johnson. It is fitting to have a yearbook this gorgeous to celebrate the 50th Edition! To make the morning even more special, the Senior Class chose […]
As we prepare to launch the Class of 2019 into the world, it is with a heart full of mixed emotions. Joy – because we know how much we know they have to look forward to. We know they are ready. We know they are prepared. And we know they will do great things to better the world around them. But we also know how much they will be missed. And how our world will be a little emptier without them in it every day – without seeing their smiling […]
