You will have a lot to live up to at Brewster. We set the
bar very high and expect you to continuously challenge yourself. Our
recognition system ensures you do by recognizing and rewarding your efforts and
growth in the areas of respect, integrity, and service as they pertain to
academics, athletics, and community life.
We recognize two distinct levels of recognition – Citizenship
Status and the John Brewster Scholar Status – based on your individual
achievement. We’ve designed the system on the concept of equal access to
recognition and reward that makes the highest achievement possible for every
Students do not compete for these honors; rather, they earn
them. Everyone is eligible, and students encourage one another, to earn these
distinctions. We determine the criteria for progress based on our student
performance evaluations, which teachers, coaches, and community life parents
complete six times a year. This
means that if you don’t happen to earn status in one recognition period, you
have plenty of opportunities to improve and grow.
You will know how you are doing because your teachers will
give you regular feedback about the recognition items. You also will complete a
self-evaluation using each of the evaluation items to establish a comparison
with the instructor’s evaluations. This provides a means continuous dialogue about self-awareness and your
progress in each area of your life at Brewster.
