Why did you choose PBS for your family?
We chose PBS because of its reputation for academic excellence and its constructivist approach to learning. The School’s focus on developing a love of learning is a principal that resonated with us. Moreover, when we toured schools, the one factor that was obvious to us, was that the teachers and faculty members are warm and generous with their time and affection. The children on campus looked happy to be at school and after five years, we can attest that children are indeed happy to be part of the Phillips Brooks family.
What are some of your favorite things about PBS?
How have you seen your child grow since they've been at PBS?
When we brought our oldest child to PBS five years ago, she was shy and diffident. PBS has been instrumental in helping her develop into a confident girl who is comfortable in articulating her feelings and standing up for herself and others. She also has the confidence to walk into unknown situations and make new friends.
What is it like to be a parent here?
Being a parent at PBS means that you can be as involved as you want to be in your child’s life at school. There are many opportunities to volunteer at the school, in and out of the classroom. Parents are also always welcome on campus. Further, it is a place where the channels of communication between teachers and parents are always open; teachers are prompt in responding to every day questions and concerns and are always willing to sit down and talk about a student in detail.
