Why would you send a sixth-grade boy to boarding school? Shouldn't a ninth-grade student start high school? What is a junior boarding school? Make an appointment to visit us today and learn why Eaglebrook, a boarding and day school for boys in middle school, might be the right place for your son.
Eaglebrook School was founded in 1922 by Howard Gibbs as a private boarding and day school for boys in middle school. Learn about our school in Deerfield, Massachusetts then and now, and read about the Core Skills we think every boy should know.
At Eaglebrook, we recognize that all students learn in different ways, vary in their innate abilities, and come from a variety of educational backgrounds. Classes at Eaglebrook are organized to meet the needs of each boy.
Eaglebrook is a close community of middle school students, teachers, and their families. Activities outside of the academic classroom are important to the intellectual, social, physical, and emotional development of boys in middle school. Learn about the programs we offer at Eaglebrook, from athletics to arts.
At Eaglebrook, boys learn more than they ever thought possible, discover inner resources, develop self-confidence, and have fun along the way. Delivering on our mission is only possible through the incredible generosity of alumni, parents, parents of alumni, and friends.”
It is a little known fact that Eaglebrook students love dumplings. Whenever dumplings are served in Gibbs Dining Hall, they go fast. Last Friday night the Eaglebrook School Student Council hosted a dumpling sale in the Sports Center. The students were selling the dumplings to raise money for a cause brought to them at the beginning of the year by a fellow student. Project Hope is a non-governmental organization that raises money for schools in rural China. Read more about Project Hope here. The Student Council decided that this was a worthy cause to support, and decided to earmark the funds raised to go toward funding a music program at a rural Chinese school. They came up with the idea of selling fresh hot dumplings to the students because they knew how popular such a venture would be. The group raised $120.00 on Friday night. Chinese teacher and World Languages Department Chair Yuan-Hsiu Lien will be taking some students to China over March break, and they hope to visit some of the areas supported by Project Hope. Ms. Lien said that, “The students who worked on the project felt good about this first try and are thinking that they will do more when we return.”
