Visiting Us

Phillips Brooks School invites you to visit our campus and offers regular Open House campus tours by reservation from September through January. Optional classroom observations are available by appointment once you have submitted your child’s application. Applicants spend time on campus in the classrooms. Applicants for the ELC and Kindergarten also visit the Admission Office to participate in one-on-one activities.

Campus Tours

Open House tours typically begin at our community GATHER assembly, followed by remarks from our Head of School, a walk-through of the campus and classrooms, and a brief question-and-answer session featuring volunteer 5th-grade students and available faculty. Tours last approximately 90 minutes and are for adults only. Please visit the Explore and Apply webpage to sign up online for the tour date you prefer, or call the office. The Admission Office is always happy to help with any questions at 650-854-4545 x137 or by email at
