- Our educational philosophy affirms the importance of balance between academic and personal development. In the Lower School, the developmental approach allows boys and girls to learn according to their varying levels of readiness; in the Middle School, the special attention given to educating young women encourages risk-taking and fosters leadership potential.
- We are committed to differentiation. Small group reading sections in the Lower School and math sections in the Middle School allow for each child to learn at his or her own pace with individualized attention from the teacher. Section placements are re-assessed throughout the year to make sure that each child is being appropriately supported and challenged. We meet students where they are in order to propel them towards their own personal excellence.
- Through intentionally small classes, faculty-coached athletics, and supportive advisory programs, our faculty get to know and experience each student as a scholar, athlete, artist, and leader.
- Our campus sprawls across 30 green acres and includes three athletic fields, tennis courts, ponds, nature trails, an outdoor garden and classroom, and two playground structures geared toward different developmental groups.

My student started Nashoba Brooks School in the 5th grade and will tell you that the #1 reason for choosing Nashoba Brooks was the feeling of inclusivity. My student felt a positive vibe from the first visiting day. The small class sizes allow for more personalized attention. Every adult in the building - teacher, administrators, and staff — gets to know every student well — who they are as learners and individuals. Nashoba Brooks cares about the whole child, supporting both social and emotional learning and excellence in academics. Our child was anxious about public speaking, and by mid-year in 5th grade was up on the stage speaking during an all-school assembly with confidence and support by peers and teachers. Nashoba Brooks School lives its values: integrity, collaboration, inclusivity, empathy, and resilience! This is especially evident during the pandemic, as they have worked hard to bring all students safely back to in-person school while also providing a hybrid option for families. My student is thriving and happy to be learning in school with peers. The teachers are especially dedicated, skilled, and creative. I highly recommend the school.

Our kids were on the quieter side in their pre-school before coming to Nashoba Brooks. We were worried they might slip through the cracks in a larger class. Wanting them to have solid engagement in these early years as they were learning to read/build the foundations for learning, we looked at Nashoba Brooks for kindergarten. I was not a private school person myself, so was a little skeptical. However, after the visit we knew it was the place. From kindergarten all the way through for boys (through 3rd) and girls (through 8th), we were continually impressed. As I was not bought in to the full private school program, as a family we agreed to evaluate things every year and see if it still made sense. Each year, we came away so happy with our kids' academic progress, engagement, love of learning, strong sense of right and wrong, kindness and open-mindedness. While no school is perfect, and kids can have a bad day now and then, we could not have asked for more and the investment was so worth it. They were very well known, loved and encouraged. They felt free to take risks in the classroom, on the field and on stage. They have gone on to next schools as confident, capable students and most importantly, good people. Thank you NBS! The world needs more students coming through your doors. If you are considering it, go visit.

All 3 of my kids attending Nashoba Brooks. They all started in kindergarten and my daughter graduated from 8th grade. My 2 sons graduated from 3rd grade. All 3 had enriching experiences and were very well prepared for their next schools. Nashoba Brooks faculty is unmatched and its nurturing environment and mission driven commitment to excellence is unparalleled. I highly recommend!!

I have three graduates from with the most recent having graduated last year. My children have all gone on to top secondary schools -- which is great -- but what is better is that they were INCREDIBLY well prepared in all ways, as a student, a communicator, a self-advocate and a community member. Each of my children developed a strong sense of self during their formative years at NBS and were supported and encouraged by teachers who knew them well. Middle school can be a difficult time for both kids and parents and NBS does a great job helping us parents create a great community of learners. I might also note that I have never seen such a close knit group of teachers and administrators -- they are all on the same team and have the kids well being as their primary focus! HIGHLY recommended.

I have been a parent at Nashoba Brooks School for the last 11 years. My daughter started in Preschool 1 and will be graduating from the 8th grade. I have seen her develop from a shy little girl into a confident and articulate young lady. Even more than the outstanding academic education she has received, this school has developed a person of strong character and helped her discover interests and passions that she plans to pursue in high school. The personalized attention she has received, the innovative program and the caring teachers have made all this possible. Our family is so pleased we chose Nashoba for our daughter.

I am an 8th grader at this school and I can confidently say that coming to this school was the best decision I ever made. There are so many different opportunities for leadership and I have changed so much! I have really good self confidence and have found my ability to be a good leader. Nashoba fosters the curiosity and supports girls of today so that we can be the women who make a difference tomorrow. I

Nashoba has been a great experience for me. I came in really shy, but the community really changed that. The teachers are amazing; what we learn is very interesting and relevant. Still, there are challenges: sometimes since the grade is so small you feel like you know everyone too well, which can be a good or bad thing. The academics are great, and the teachers push me and support me. Overall, I have loved it here, but am really excited to go to high school and move on.

Sending your child to a single-sex school is one of several options you have when it comes to private schools.
Each state sets its own teacher certification requirements. While many private schools do not require you to be certified, it is in your best interests to obtain certification. This article includes contact information for state education offices so you can begin the process.
Marketing the small private school can be done affordably and effectively. We suggest five easy steps to make that happen.
