At a Glance

Brookwood is an Early Childhood through 8th Grade coeducational independent school located on a beautiful 30-acre wooded campus in Manchester, Massachusetts, on the coast of the North Shore of Boston. At Brookwood, kids come first—not the test, not trophies, not to-do lists.

We know how kids learn best.

Every day, we use our expertise to challenge kids intellectually and ensure they feel valued so they can grow into their best selves. Because when kids skip down hallways, learn with curiosity, think deeply and take risks, they confidently walk into whatever’s next.

Prepared for tomorrow.

Instead of simply finding answers, kids need to learn to make good decisions. Our rigorous academic program helps kids become innovative creators, ethical leaders, contributing citizens and lifelong learners.

Why Brookwood?

Since 1956, we’ve been steadfast in fulfilling our founding mission to graduate children of conscience, character, compassion and cultural competence.
