At Brooks School, we seek to provide the most meaningful educational experience our students will have in their lives.
All current students and employees are invited to a Community Conversation about Brooks School's progress with equity and inclusion work. Topics of discussion include our curriculum, bias and grievance protocols for students and adults and employee professional development. Check your email for the link to join in!
