History[edit] Brunswick School was founded in 1902 by George B. Carmichael, a teacher at the nearby Greenwich Academy. The school is a college preparatory day school serving approximately 930 boys in grades pre-kindergarten through 12.[1] Facilities[edit] The school is made up of 5 different campuses. The Upper School campus is located on Maher Avenue in Greenwich. The Upper School English annex and pre-school building is located on North Maple Avenue, a short walk away from the Upper School. The bucolic Edwards Campus (named after former headmaster Duncan Edwards, II) is located about 15 minutes away from the Maher Avenue campus on King Street. Edwards Campus is made up of both the Middle School
Middle School
and Lower School buildings, as well as the Burke Fieldhouse (basketball, wrestling, tennis, and the Cosby Weight Room) and Sampson Fieldhouse (which houses the Dann O'Neil Gym, the Stephens Squash Courts, and Hartong Rink). A new turf field (Cosby Field) is the home to the varsity football, soccer, and lacrosse teams.They just built a newer turf behind the Middle School, which is resting upon their new pool. Additionally, Brunswick recently invested in a boat house located on River Road, just a twenty-minute drive from the Upper School campus. Brunswick also bought a campus across the street making it the new middle school, while the lower school moves into the middle school building. The pre-school will move into the lower school building making the pre-school a STEM building. Brunswick also bought a campus in Vermont. [2] Coordination with Greenwich Academy[edit] Brunswick's sister school is Greenwich Academy, which is located two blocks from Brunswick's Upper School campus. The two schools share classes with each other during Upper School, and students are able to choose courses from a combined course catalogue, with the exception of mathematics courses and ninth grade English, which remain separate.[3] The connection between ""Greenwich Academy"" and Brunswick dates back to the school's founding. The founder of Brunswick had been previously employed as a teacher at Greenwich Academy, which was then a co-educational secondary school. After the founding of Brunswick, Greenwich Academy
Greenwich Academy
began admitting girls alone, directing boys to apply to Brunswick School.[4] Notable alumni[edit]
