While pp电子 enjoys a pastoral setting overlooking Lake Cochichewick, it's anything but sleepy. The active campus remains bustling at all hours of the day and into the night as students from all over the United States, 和世界, come together as one community.
In the last five years, pp电子 has enrolled students hailing from 31 states and 23 countries. 住在单人宿舍里, you might find a freshman from Germany, 香港或日本, or a senior from California, 德州或威斯康辛州.
A full 70 percent of students live at pp电子, some from neighboring communities, others from across the globe.
宿舍的父母 regularly serve up home-cooked meals, play games, and hang out with the boarders in their dorm.
Members of pp电子' current school community hail from Africa, Asia, Europe and other regions.
From decorating their rooms to studying with friends, students feel comfortable, 安全, and happy living at pp电子.
Day students are welcome and included in the activities offered to our boarders — and there are many. During the week students bustle from club meetings to 下午的活动. 在周末, they enjoy trips to restaurants, to the movies and to local malls, as well as gathering with friends for campus parties and activities planned by our active (and really creative!) Community Activities Board. 一些亮点? 泡沫的舞蹈, 泡沫足球比赛, trips to go indoor surfing, calzones at the Head of School's house, 漆夜, our annual "Paint Dance" and Woodstock—pp电子-style.
Boarding students quickly bond with their classmates in the dorm. 在11点办理登机手续后.m. 在周六晚上, 例如, dorm parents host parties for residents, giving boarders the chance to relax and gather together for ice cream sundaes, 甜甜圈, 和其他食物. One of the highlights of our annual Field Day is the competitions between the dorms. 看到 photos from the fun event 在brooksschoolphotos.com.
宿舍的父母 play a special role in the lives of pp电子 boarders, serving as a touchstone and mentor — while also teaching in the classroom and coaching after school. Willie Waters '02 is a dorm parent in Chace House (and a history teacher and dean of students). He and his wife Susanna Waters (history teacher and associate head of school for academic affairs) often make Buffalo wings or brownies for the boarders living with them. The couple's annual holiday card features their two children, 他们的狗, and the 22 boys living with them. At least two 教员 live in each residence, and dorm prefects are appointed to work with the younger students and help them feel welcome as they adjust to living away from home.
The dorms are also a place to study and learn. On weeknights and Sunday evening, dorms are quiet for study hours between 8 and 10 p.m. Third-formers have assigned study hall in the Science Forum. For more information about the rules and guidelines at pp电子平台, see our 学生手册 (点击 下载PDF). Most fourth- and fifth-formers study in the dorm and sixth-formers are free to study outside of the dorm.
Every year, students have the opportunity to live in a new dorm, if they choose. Each house offers a mix of single and double rooms. The school has 10 宿舍, five each for girls and boys, and a place for everyone.
"At pp电子, it feels like the students are all part of a family. Because you go to school, 和生活, with the same set of kids, it makes you overlook any of your differences and come together as one pp电子 family."
