The Core of our School

Philosophy About Teachers

The Brunswick School understands the importance of hiring well-experienced, highly educated, caring and responsible teachers for our school. Beyond all other aspects of running a school, hiring the very best teachers to lead our classrooms is always at the top of our list to keep not only our students happy, engaged and learning well but to keep families happy knowing their little ones are in terrific hands! As you will see below, our teachers come from different though equally impressive backgrounds and we are thrilled they have joined our team. We are so excited for you all to get to know our faculty and know you will feel comfortable and confident in their abilities within moments of meeting them.
