How does a child grow to fulfill his or her potential? At Renbrook, we believe it starts with a small, close-knit, safe community where students take appropriate risks and identify and cultivate their own strengths. We believe that active learning, engagement in service, and opportunities for leadership foster the optimal growth of children during their most formative years of development.
With the motto, not to be served but to serve, the school is committed to helping out in schools and nonprofits in the local community.
Book Buddies! Our upperclass students mentor our younger students in our 'Book Buddy' reading program.
In addition to using traditional numeric and letter grades, Watkinson awards effort grades. A direct extension of Watkinson's unique educational philosophy, effort grades evaluate a student's work ethics and habit in the classroom. Using these alongside each student's record of academic standing is imperative to assessing the whole child and invaluable to celebrating a wide array of learners.
The beautiful shoreline of Connecticut makes a perfect spot for a school like Oxford. Our tight-knit community of students and faculty love to take advantage of all the area has to offer: beaches, museums, restaurants, and more!
