2017 ALUM

Brooks came to The Harris School as a preschooler and transitioned out after second grade. As of 2020, he is a thriving middle schooler at St. Mark's Episcopal School.  From changing classes to making friends, Brooks continues to develop new skills year after year. He played on the school’s fifth-grade basketball and golf teams. He also played baseball and football outside of school. Brook's greatest accomplishment in fifth grade included working his way from a conduct report of "does not meet expectations" to "meets expectations" and ultimately to "exceeds expectations" by the end of the year. His parents say they learned a valuable lesson through the process: supporting the student doesn't end when they leave The Harris School, but The Harris School leaves you with the tools to do it! In the future, Brooks plans to be a professional football player or otherwise an attorney because he is a self-professed natural when it comes to trying to negotiate any and everything. Today's challenge as a parent will be tomorrow's asset for his career!  

“Thank you to The Harris School for all the things I learned that helped me achieve and grow in the opportunities I've had since leaving.”
