Why Nashoba Brooks?

Our children are happy every day at pickup. They are excited about what they are learning, energized by their teachers and classmates, and embraced for who they are by the Nashoba Brooks School community.

Why Nashoba Brooks?

Why should you choose Nashoba Brooks School? We offer a student-centered approach that is built upon the School’s core values: integrity, collaboration, inclusivity, empathy, and resilience. With an emphasis on the interpersonal relationships between students and their teachers, students are encouraged to take healthy academic risks, voice their opinions, and grow from their mistakes. 
At Nashoba Brooks, we know that tomorrow’s leaders will need fluency and flexibility when navigating many forms of literacy. We also understand the best learning is not siloed and segmented, but integrated and interdependent. Our students build a genuine love of reading and research, while exploring natural connections through collaboration, design, creation, and iteration. Using our STEAM lab we amplify interdisciplinary pedagogy and diversify learning experiences so that our students have opportunities to explore all aspects of science, engineering, art, and math.

In spite of the challenges caused by this year's pandemic, Nashoba Brooks students and employees have successfully managed to learn in person all year, with some families electing to learn from home. In reflecting on the year, we asked ourselves, what matters most? See the videos below to hear what some of our students and employees had to say.

Employee reflections

Preschool - Grade 3

Our multi-age (3-5 years), coed Preschool presents the opportunity for children to spend two years being inquisitive and confident learners and community members. Our coed program continues in Kindergarten through Grade 3 where we encourage discovery and the acquisition of essential life and learning skills. Students develop multicultural perspectives and feel safe in taking on new academic challenges. Our students love coming to school because the classroom is an adventure—and our teachers are their guides on this journey. Learn more.

Grades 4 - 8

In our all-girls Middle School (Grades 4-8), students rise to new academic challenges while finding opportunities for self-exploration and leadership. Nashoba Brooks middle school students learn to answer tough questions, pursue elusive answers, assert well-formed opinions, and meet life’s obstacles with sureness, strength, and a sense of humor. As our community’s oldest students, they model the empathy, resilience, and grit needed to succeed in high school and the world. They become leaders and respected members of the region’s best secondary schools, and in the colleges, universities, and careers they choose. Learn more.
