Brookwood School Curriculum Open House
On Thursday, February 7, 2013 at 8:45 a.m., parents of students entering grades Pre-K through Eight are invited to Brookwood School's Curriculum Open House to learn about the exceptional education the school offers.
"At Brookwood, we know that what matters most is a child who is happily engaged in his or her learning and a student who is intellectually challenged, supported, and encouraged by teachers and peers alike," says Brookwood Head of School John Peterman. "Over the course of Brookwood's 55-plus year history we've learned that a confident child is a successful learner and successful learners are successful in life. And we know this is a question of balance -- balancing rigor with compassion, excellence with exuberance, and self-discovery with sensitivity to others."
The Program will feature:
- 8:45 a.m. Coffee & Conversation
- 9:00 a.m. Head of School John Peterman and Assistant Head of School Barb Liston will provide an overview of Brookwood's curricular program and initiatives identified in the school's new Strategic Plan -- including global interconnectedness through partnerships and alliances with world-class universities and organizations.
- 9:20 a.m. Visitors will have the opportunity to participate in small group discussions with division heads and faculty members.
- 10:00 a.m. School Meeting
In 2012, Brookwood embarked on an exciting new strategic plan. From global interconnectedness, including partnerships and alliances with world-class universities and organizations, to improvements to athletic fields, and reconfigured learning spaces in our Lower School, Brookwood is poised to bring today’s students to their tomorrows.
“When the world is changing at a pace faster than any one mind or organization can match, educational enterprises must prepare students for a world they must imagine, but cannot possibly know,” says Peterman.
