To acknowledge and honor the many artists within our community and to celebrate the opening of our new Lower School, Brookwood is hosting its first ever Alumni and Community Art Exhibit on the afternoon of January 11, 2015.
The Brookwood community extends a hearty congratulations to the 56 students who received their diplomas at Brookwood’s 51st Commencement ceremony held on Tuesday, June 10. Although the sunshine failed to make an appearance for the second year in a row, spirits were high among the family and friends who filled the School Meeting House.
From geocaching and crime scene investigation to knitting for charity and digital story telling, the 168 students in Grades 6, 7 and 8, were immersed in one of 14 intensive, singularly focused courses from May 19-23.
Brookwood's global initiatives continue to thrive with students and faculty welcoming two visitors to campus this May: Tonny KASINJA, 2014 Exchange Educator from FAWE School in Kigali, Rwanda, and Elius Muhimbise of the Kasiisi Project in Uganda.
Congratulations to the winners of the 2014 Harold W. Wise Declamation Contest: Lower Level winner sixth grader Max M. declaimed “Totally Like Whatever, You Know?” by Taylor Mali and Upper Level winner eighth grader Michaela M. presented “Repetition” by Phil Kaye.
A Brookwood faculty member is spearheading a collaboration between 10 Brookwood eighth graders in a design-build club and a senior at The Governor’s Academy to fabricate and assemble a 3D printable mechanical hand.
President Barack Obama: "You've got Alex Emerson, who showed us how his 8th grade class at Brookwood School in Massachusetts changed the definition of "pen pals" by video chatting with students in Uganda. And one of the things they did was collaborate on cookstoves that help families in rural areas cook safer and with cleaner energy."
