Faculty Wish List

Everywhere you turn at Brookwood, you will see the lasting benefits of PA fundraising. One of the best examples in recent years is the addition of lockers to the Upper School. The PA-funded wooden lockers were designed and custom-built especially with the Brookwood Upper School student in mind – with ample room for backpacks, coats, sports equipment, books, binders, etc. Just ask the students how much they love them!
