    As a parent of a Brimmer graduate from the class of 2017, I can't say enough good things about this school. My daughter earned a Global Studies Diploma (one of three unique diploma programs at Brimmer) and now she is majoring in Political Science with a minor in Environmental Studies at a top 30 Liberal Arts college. Thanks to Brimmer's faculty and how well they know each student, along with a huge offering of course choices, our daughter was ready for success in college. Additionally, her participation in clubs and activities like Model UN, Greenline Chorus, Student Senate, Varsity Soccer and Lacrosse gave her the confidence to try lots of different things. She could never have done all of that at a larger school.

    My two daughters attend Brimmer and May. They both started in PK and my oldest daughter is in 6th grade. It is a warm, inclusive, innovative learning environment. My children are happy, thriving, and challenged. It is a very welcoming and diverse learning environment where students have fun and are encouraged to take risks. Honestly I can't imagine a better school for our family. Both my daughters plan to stay at Brimmer until they go to college.
    Most teachers are great, especially within the humanities department. Very tight knit community. Sports are decent but athletic facilities are very poor(no showers, tiny locker room). Most sports teams are not super competitive due to low numbers but the athletic experience is still a very good one because everyone contributes and has opportunities to try new sports and be a leader. The college counsellors do not care much about their jobs or their students unfortunately. Overall very good experience mainly because of teachers, coaches, and community. Athletics were great for me as someone who at a bigger school would have been an average player. At brimmer I was a leader on multiple teams. Facilities are average. Would recommend brimmer for well rounded students. You have to be involved in everything at brimmer not just one thing. This was great for me but could make some people unhappy. everyone will know your name and you will have many different roles if you attend brimmer.
