School Notes:

  • Winter Term is a success!  In January, Brooks students embarked on its first ever Winter Term and it was a great success. The goal of Winter Term is to put into practice the concept of “depth over breadth,” something that supports the school’s mission of providing the most meaningful educational experiences Brooks students will have. The single-course structure of Winter Term allows students and faculty to work together even more closely than they do in regular classes.
  • A new boys dormitory, Chace House, opened in September of 2012.  A "green" dormitory, it features a state of the art common room, outside patio and gathering area, and both single and double rooms. 
  • In the fall of 2008, Brooks unveiled its new "green" science building. It houses three state of the art laboratories, a lecture hall, and plenty of open space in which students and faculty can interact. The new science bulding complements Brooks' other outstanding facilities including newly constructed athletic facilities. The main gym has three hard wood courts, a fitness center/weight room overlooking the courts, and a wrestling room. Attached to the gym is the newly renovated ice hockey rink. The squash/rowing center features 10 international size squash courts and two indoor rowing tanks. This facility is unique amongst small boarding schools.
  • Something exciting is always going on here, so please make an appointment to come visit us!
