Far Brook is a community of students, families, faculty and staff, trustees, alumni, alumni families, and friends. At the heart of the School is the involvement of the entire family.
Far Brook has a tradition of volunteerism – nearly 100% of parents (fathers, mothers, guardians, and even some grandparents), as well as many alumni and alumni parents, donate their time and talents and financial support to benefit the School. Gifts large or small are much appreciated and help enhance the students' experience. The School’s varied activities allow volunteers to employ their talents, skills, and interests for the benefit of the Far Brook community.
Additional family involvement opportunities include the Annual Fund, other fundraising activities, and the Recruiting Committee.
In addition to structured volunteer opportunities and committees, parent participation is welcome at appropriate times in the classrooms where families share their cultural heritage, traditions, and talents with the students.
Far Brook is a member of Common Ground Speaks, a collaborative effort of Parents' Associations of independent schools, which sponsors free events featuring distinguished speakers on topics related to child development, parenting, and education.
