There are big schools. There are small schools. Brimmer balances the best attributes of both to challenge, nurture, and empower our students.

Brimmer and May is an all gender private school that fosters active learners, compassionate leaders, and ethical global citizens from pre-kindergarten to high school. The ideal size of our school allows for personalized instruction in a student-centered, project-based learning environment.

Brimmer is big on academic resources and offerings for students: From core subjects to creative arts to social-emotional skill building. Yet our smaller scale is perfect for fostering a sense of community and connection.

Throughout Middle School our students develop research skills, practice public speaking, and examine the world and its cultures, societies, and issues.
