Learning At The Brook

Our curriculum asks big questions and expects students to work through them at their own pace. We look for our students to develop their own answers because those answers will construct how they live their lives. SBS graduates often tell us how grateful they are that we did not tell them what to think, but rather taught them how to think while giving them the space to do so.
