School Environment

“Only a school of character can aspire to foster character to its pupils.”
Professor Charles Glenn of Boston University

In Cherrybrook, we continually strive to create an environment that exemplifies the character that we want to impart to our students.  The classroom, the gym, the playing fields, social functions are all avenues for teaching virtues.  Thus, the whole school environment becomes a classroom for character development.  In these different settings, our students experience a climate of genuine service and acceptance.  They learn to value sincerity and generosity in friendship; they grasp the relationship between making choices and the personal responsibilities that come with every choice.
Our team of teachers also strive to live the virtues which include cheerfulness, a spirit of sacrifice, generosity, excellence, all the points which we want our children to pick up and to which parents themselves, the primary role models, aspire towards.
