Facts and Figures


Average Class Size

Small classes mean greater interaction between students and teacher, which includes both in-class instruction and extra help given outside of class during free periods.


Credits for Diploma

Brooks has minimum requirements for students in a number of traditional disciplines, including art, English, history, classical and world languages, math and science.


Credit Courses

Students have a wide variety of classes from which to choose. As they move into their junior and senior year, they are able to select from numerous elective courses.


Library Space

The Henry Luce III Library is a 15,000-square-foot, three story building where students come to research, study, use the computer labs, and do group work in the study rooms.

Students celebrate their heritage during our annual Flag Day ceremony. In recent years, Brooks has enrolled students from across the country and around the world.
