Now celebrating our 44th season, Renbrook School Summer Adventure is a day camp open to 3 year old through tenth grade students coupled with our Counselor-In-Training Program for eleventh and twelfth grade students. Each program has been carefully developed for each age customized by staff aware of the growth and needs of children. Admission is based on personal qualifications without
In our science classes, our primary purpose is to increase students' understanding of the scientific way we learn about and understand the universe. We take the long view first and study a variety of processes on planet Earth and the challenges life must overcome to exist on the planet.
Through a constant variety of hands on activities and projects (topics are often chosen on their own), we show students how science affects their lives. Whether we're in the classroom, walking through our woods and fields, exploring our pond, or keeping up to date with new discoveries on the internet, we are in constant motion.
Arts and Athletics: 15 sports offerings for grades six through nine with every student participating in physical education. 10 different performing groups in a variety of Arts opportunities.
From preschool to grade five, we seek to promote students to the Upper School who are joyful, resilient, life-long learners. Lower School embraces a philosophy of education that combines a nurturing, inclusive learning environment with an increasingly challenging academic program that recognizes the learning style and developmental needs of each student.
Buddy Programs are organized by teachers, to pair up classes of older and younger students. For example, the ninth graders are traditionally buddies with the preschoolers or JK students.
We believe that the Visual Arts play a vital part in educating the whole child. At Renbrook, every student has the opportunity to learn how to communicate their ideas visually, as they experiment with new materials. Students are given the technical skills they need to allow them to explore and discover, as they find their own artistic voice.
- At Renbrook, we educate the "complete" student-your child will grow intellectually, socially, and ethically.
- Renbrook School prepares your preschool to eighth grade child for success at secondary school and beyond.
- At Renbrook, your child`s education will be characterized by small classes and personal attention from faculty members.
- With about 200 students in each of our Lower and Upper Schools, class sizes of 10:15 are typical.
- In this smaller, focused learning environment, your child will have the opportunity to ask questions, share ideas, and to learn-both from dedicated, passionate educators, and from the other students in the class.
- We value challenging academic work, but also encourage creativity, versatility, and a balanced, healthy lifestyle.
- Most importantly, like few other schools, we support your child`s individual advancement and achievement. This is learning. This is Renbrook.

After visiting several schools in the area for our daughters, RENBROOK SCHOOL, was the easiest decision we had to make. Superb faculty and staff, and a 5 star facility. Waiting to see what the final product looks like. FM

Renbrook provides a solid foundation for its students. I am grateful for the skills and confidence it provided me and how it prepared me for a successful secondary educational career and beyond. The feeling that the school, its faculty and staff, and fellow students have for this special place is immense.
