Brookwood is dedicated to creating an environment where every child feels safe, valued, and respected. We prioritize the emotional well-being of our students. Through SEL, we empower them with tools to understand and manage their emotions effectively. Our educators are trained to recognize and address the unique needs of each child, fostering an atmosphere of trust and open communication.

Fostering Personal Growth and Development

Our Early Childhood through eighth grade PGD curriculum is designed with multiple goals in mind: to nurture the personal growth and social competency skills of each child at Brookwood; to encourage the development of solid decision-making skills, an appreciation of civility, and a sound ethical grounding; to offer opportunities for the explicit consideration of social and moral issues in order to help each student gain an understanding of self, of others, and of the relationships between and among them; and finally, to promote self-respect, self-confidence, respect for others and empathy.

Encouraging Risk-Taking

We understand that growth often comes from taking risks. Brookwood encourages students to step out of their comfort zones, try new things, and embrace challenges. Our supportive community ensures that students feel encouraged to explore their interests and pursue their passions. Our curriculum incorporates real-life scenarios, collaborative projects, and reflective practices, preparing students for the dynamic world beyond the classroom.

Building Confidence Through Authentic Expression

We understand that true confidence comes when children feel secure in expressing their authentic selves. Our commitment to providing a safe and nurturing environment allows students to be who they are, fostering a sense of self-assurance that extends beyond the classroom.

Encouraging Student Agency

We believe that every child has a unique voice and perspective. Through our emphasis on open communication and active listening, students are encouraged to express their thoughts and ideas freely. This not only enhances their communication skills but also boosts their confidence in articulating their viewpoints.

Pushing Boundaries for Growth

Confidence is further cultivated when children are encouraged to push their own boundaries. At Brookwood, we inspire students to challenge themselves, take on new challenges, and explore their potential. This mindset of pushing boundaries fosters a resilient spirit, laying the foundation for a lifetime of confident decision-making and problem-solving.
