Brimmer Blog

What makes a school special is both who its people are and what they believe. At Brimmer, you will find educators who embrace new ideas, respond with dynamic programming, and adjust to the needs of each student. You will find students who are encouraged to be inquisitive, confident, and open with their ideas and beliefs. We are a PK – 12 community that models what it means to be lifelong learners. In Brimmer’s school blog, our educators and administrators share their unique perspectives. Come learn how our students are inspired to learn, encouraged to explore, and empowered to lead.

    Defending the Core of Democracy: A Response to the Attack on the U.S. Capitol

    Joshua Neudel, Head of Upper School
    It is not clear what will transpire over the next few days, but there is a pathway to change. It requires us to stand up and engage in civil discourse, work together, and live our Core Values. We will continue to work together, students, faculty, and staff to create a positive change at our School, in our community, and beyond.
  • Empowering Lower Schoolers to Work Toward a More Equitable World

    Emily Miller, Head of Lower School
    This week has offered important lessons and many opportunities to engage students in conversation around topics related to civics, democracy, racism, voting rights, and protest that is in stark contrast to nonviolent, peaceful protest. We are committed to supporting students during this difficult time, and with your partnership believe that we can empower them to work toward a better, more peaceful, and equitable world. 
  • Ensuring our Democracy Endures: A Response to the Attack on the U.S. Capitol

    Carl Vallely, Head of Middle School
    Despite the horrors seen in our nation’s capital yesterday, I am confident that we will walk through this moment together, that our democracy will endure, and that we will emerge from this moment. However, we must also recognize and call out the evils that led to the attack and continue to grapple with how we got to this point.
  • Seeking a Path Forward: Brimmer's Response to the Attack on the U.S. Capitol

    Judith Guild, Head of School
    A time like this calls for us to be respectful and kind and always promote equity; hate and violence are in conflict with those values. If our students’ actions reflect our Core Values as they explore these issues, I am confident we will be able to seek a positive path forward.
