Great education at Great Brook
To the editor:
Every morning when my son gets on the bus to go to Great Brook School, I feel relieved.
I know he is going to a place, close to home, where the principal knows every kid's name. GBS is a place where every student is celebrated — not just the most athletic or the smartest. Every month at their Students of Excellence Assembly, each student, throughout the year, receives an individual award acknowledging who they are and what characteristic is worth celebrating. It may be leadership, creativity, citizenship, humor (yes, humor!), extra effort in their Spanish class, or being an integral part of a class project.
The school is lively, positive, encouraging, academically strong, full of spirit and creativity, and a really fun place to go. The principal, Jim Elder, leads his staff and students with interest, compassion, humility and high standards. He inspires them to achieve their best, academically and interpersonally. Every student is an excellent student at GBS. I am so grateful for Great Brook.
