Meet Our Head of School

Welcome to Brookwood School!

In 1956, Brookwood was founded by a dynamic group of community leaders and educators seeking to build an exceptional school, and their spirit lives on today. Among our faculty and students, we see the drive, perseverance and dedication that motivated that inspired group over 60 years ago.

Since joining Brookwood in 2015, I have learned many things about our wonderful school. Guided by our exceptional faculty, we have an abundance of creative ideas to make learning deep, engaging and enduring.

Our students achieve phenomenal results through ingenuity, careful research, passion and hard work.Laura Caron

Our school community is a place for belonging and support, where everyone has a voice and a seat at the table. As written in our guiding philosophy, The New Face of Rigor, we believe that “how kids feel determines in large measure whether kids learn.” We also believe that “instead of simply finding answers, students need to learn to make good decisions.” These perspectives underscore every interaction we have to ensure that kids are connected, reflective contributors within our classrooms and beyond.

Brookwood is well-positioned to continue deepening our strengths while exploring new opportunities for growth on campus and in the community. Our new strategic plan, Deep Roots, Bright Future, will build on our rich tradition of academic excellence and social-emotional strength. We will engage students as leaders and changemakers, personalize learning for every student and strengthen our culture of wellness. We will redesign how we spend students’ time and increase the cohesion throughout our program. We will empower our exceptional faculty and encourage them to share their impact more broadly. We will strengthen our inclusive community, and finally, we will ensure the financial sustainability of our beloved school.

We are excited for you to join us as we embark on the next chapter of Brookwood’s legacy of educational excellence!
