Upper School

Connection and student agency are at the heart of the Upper School experience, as students are encouraged to take ownership of their learning with the support of invested faculty and peers.

Upper School students are continually honing their mastery of Brookwood’s Mission in Practice skills: respectful and clear communication, collaboration, risk-taking, critical and creative thinking, and being responsible for themselves, the care of others, and the environment around them. Our faculty know how adolescents learn best and intentionally build a community of connection in our Upper School that fosters meaningful relationships, rigorous learning, and growth. Through the integration of individuality and skill building, students establish a solid foundation and a deep sense of self with which to build and explore more complex academic pursuits both at Brookwood and beyond.
