History

Brooks provides a college-preparatory program with opportunities for challenge from a broad academic curriculum including 14 advanced placement courses. With a student to teacher ratio of 5 to 1, small classes and a strong sense of community, students work closely with teachers to reach their academic potential and to pursue their interests in the arts and athletics. Our exchange programs with Kenya, South Africa, Hungary, Uganda, and Scotland add to our impressive diversity (16% students of color, 12% international).
