Brooke’s Experience

I love attending Sewickley Academy. Everyone here is extremely friendly and respectful, and all of the teachers have high expectations for us in class. I’ve also bonded with other girls outside of class through Girl Scouts, and I was able to join band and play clarinet even though I had no experience. Everyone gets a chance to try fun, new things!

The Lower School faculty uses the renowned Responsive Classroom approach to teaching, which emphasizes interactive lessons, meaningful choices, high expectations, critical thinking, and creativity.

I come from a long line of teachers, and strongly believe every child has a unique gift to share. Getting them to show it as individuals takes time, patience, and understanding. Sewickley Academy greatly values this individuality in teachers and students alike, so I get to be “me” while figuring out how to engage students and foster growth to help them find themselves in their education as well. The energy and enthusiasm of students at this school is what I love most.

I transferred to Sewickley Academy in ninth grade, so I had a unique perspective of a childhood spent in different schools before coming to the Academy. Having a more rigorous, challenging educational path was so valuable to me, and pushed me to be the best I could be. I’m jealous of those who were able to spend their whole education at SA, but so thankful I made it there eventually!
