Our School

What sets us apart?

The Brooklin School is excited to be one of the few middle schools in Maine to offer a year-round boat building program for students. Students design a paper model, visit the WoodenBoat School to get acquainted with the space, tools, and safety precautions, and then start building. With the guidance experienced, Brooklin boatbuilders they are introduced to the world of wooden boats.  Upon completion of their boat, the entire Brooklin School and local community celebrate with a launch party. The builders then get to spend time on the water navigating through the Eggemoggin Reach. It is a rewarding experience that none of them ever forget. Visit their facebook page for great pictures and information.

Brooklin School Curriculum
Our curriculum in a comprehensive pre-school through grade eight scope and sequence of appropriate grade-level learning. It is grounded in rigorous standards, connects locally when possible, and requires students to be global thinkers and problem solvers. Read More
Enrichment Activities
The Brooklin School offers both in and out of school enrichment opportunities. We have a history of competitive sports’ teams. In the fall, we love to play soccer and when the colder months arrive, we take our love of sports indoors for basketball. We also take pride in our musical talents and our students always fair well at the music festivals they enter. We are very lucky to have a performing arts teacher who involves the entire school in a spring musical.
Brooklin School PTF
The Brooklin School has a very active Parent, Teacher and Friend group. The mission of the Brooklin School PTF (Parent, Teachers and Friends)  is to rally broad support for the Brooklin School. The PTF seeks to enrich the lives of students by encouraging open communication and cooperation among parents, administration, students and the greater community. The PTF will coordinate parent volunteers and provide monetary support for student extracurricular activities and teachers’ educational items not currently funded in the school budget. Join us in making Brooklin School even stronger. Read More
