Back to School Night is one of our favorite traditions at Brookline High School. Although it looks different this year, the event remains one of the most important touchpoints for parents and caregivers all year, and a great way to hear directly from teachers and organizations at the high school.
The BHS Innovation Fund fosters a culture of academic innovation for all students and teachers, and on Back to School Night - both sessions - we are pleased to have the opportunity to share our impact on teaching and learning at Brookline High School. This year we are investing nearly $300,000 towards innovative curriculum through our:
COVID Response Grant for Teaching and Learning that BHS faculty used to prepare for a strong start in the Fall;
New school-wide foundational exposure to Coding through Math and Science courses; and
Ongoing support of the interdisciplinary and innovative courses Experiential Physics for Ninth Grade, Brookline Lens, and Hub/Advisory.
Get to Know Academic Innovation at BHS! Parents and caregivers of ninth graders - and of new students in any grade - are invited to our online Welcome Event on Thursday, November 19th at 7pm to learn about the BHS Innovation Fund. Hear directly from school leadership, participate in Ninth Grade Experiential Physics with the teachers, and "meet" other BHS parents. Register now!
Many BHS courses originated with seed funding from the Innovation Fund. Our logo appears throughout the course catalog next to every program that started through the Fund. This includes more than 30 forward-thinking academic programs that are beloved mainstays at the high school. These courses shape the school culture and curriculum and enable our students to thrive at BHS and beyond. Learn what students say about their Fund classes here.
Get Involved! Our website offers robust opportunities for parents, caregivers and community members to engage with the Innovation Fund. We look forward to connecting with you this year! Questions? Contact bhsinnovationfund@psbma.org.
Our mission is to catalyze innovation at Brookline High School by supporting faculty-driven curricular initiatives that will inspire our students and prepare them to thrive in a changing world.
