Imagine a school where priority is given to the holistic development of students, alongside a robust academic and extended day program; a school where faculty and staff engage a sense of purpose within a supportive environment. Imagine a place where there is genuine support and engagement from an authentic and diverse community – a community that has the courage to embrace the innovation and creativity needed for the future. Imagine Brockton School!

Brockton’s mission is to inspire the growth of outstanding humans – and that includes inspiring the continual growth of our faculty and staff.
