Kids need to develop skills to help them make healthy decisions for their bodies, hearts and minds.
Through our thoughtfully-sequenced approach to social-emotional learning and personal growth and development, we fortify students’ abilities to lead independent and healthy lives. We develop students’ cognitive, social-emotional and physical skills and equip them with the tools they need in order to prepare them for any challenge that comes their way. Our homeroom teachers, advisors, and division heads—as well as our health office staff—help guide, direct and support student growth throughout the school year.
Personal Growth and Development (PGD)
Our PreK through 8th grade PGD curriculum is designed with multiple goals in mind: to nurture the personal growth and social competency skills of each child at Brookwood; to encourage the development of solid decision-making skills, an appreciation of civility, and a sound ethical grounding; to offer opportunities for the explicit consideration of social and moral issues in order to help each student gain an understanding of self, of others, and of the relationships between and among them; and finally, to promote self-respect, self-confidence, respect for others and empathy.
