Service Teaches Powerful Lessons
As part of the strong academic program, we empower our students to be responsible citizens through service learning initiatives. All members of the Nashoba Brooks community, from preschoolers to eighth graders, are involved in meaningful service activities. Our goal is to channel students’ interests and talents as we open their eyes to new ideas, diverse experiences, and global awareness. Not only do students develop skills that will serve them throughout life, they build lasting relationships and develop a better understanding of problems and how to solve them.
