At Brooks Global Studies, we prepare students to become active, knowledgeable participants in a global society. Our studies lead them to understand how their actions as individuals impact the larger community of their classroom and the school, just as the actions of a single country affects the world. Our children learn to genuinely respect and accept the differences that make people and their cultures unique.
