Providing a complete education in preparation for college and life
PHILOSOPHY OF GLENBROOK
Glenbrook School is designed to provide academic excellence. The administration, faculty, patrons, parents, guardians, and students feel it is the responsibility of the school to provide maximum growth in the field of education. The course of instruction is thorough and is designed to cultivate in the student self-reliance by teaching him to think, not merely accumulate facts. It aims to provide an exceptional foundation for all students after they leave Glenbrook.
Glenbrook’s enrollment is composed of different socio-economic and geographically-located students; therefore, it is necessary to offer a wide range of curriculum choices to see that each student’s primary needs are met. The school’s basic function is to prepare students to enter college life, but its curriculum also provides experiences for those who do not plan to attend college.
In order to achieve these goals there must be complete cooperation among the administration, faculty, patrons, and students. Glenbrook realizes that each student’s needs may vary; consequently, all must work jointly to see that these needs are met. It is the responsibility of the school to motivate each student by challenging him so that his mind, curiosity, and creative abilities may be used to the fullest extent. The reward for this joint effort will be an exceptional academic foundation that all Glenbrook graduates will enjoy the rest of their lives.
Glenbrook School is an independent, co-educational, college preparatory school committed to the pursuit of excellence in education for its students.
The purpose of Glenbrook School is to promote the development of the child: academically, socially, aesthetically, and physically. The school recognizes the responsibility it shares with the home in the development of ethical and moral values.
