Students and Families, 

 

Welcome to Golden Brook School! On behalf of my administrative team, the Windham School Board, and our school district, we are happy to have you with us. I’m Chris Hunt, and I’m not just Golden Brook’s principal: I’m a proud  GBS graduate. Golden Brook looks a lot different than when I went to school here, thanks to our recent two-year, $38.5 million renovation. What hasn’t changed is the Golden Brook family’s commitment to giving our students the best that we can offer them. It was true when we opened as a small, K-2 school in 19, and it’s just as true today.

We at Golden Brook know that we are fortunate. We put those resources to work for students. We support our teachers with the latest professional development and a constantly evolving computer network. The renovation and upgrades give our school a safe, bright, and modern layout—it sure doesn’t feel like we are home to more than 1,030 students! Serving those students is our staff of more than 170 teachers, paraprofessionals, specialists, and support staff. We’re highly trained and we’re motivated to do what’s best for our students.

I was proudest of the Golden Brook staff and students in March 2020, when, like all schools, we had to adapt to the challenges of COVID remote learning. With little lead time, our staff put together an academic program that allowed our students to learn and grow in uncertain circumstances. I know that whatever happens in this uncertain time, the Golden Brook family will display flexibility and grit and take each challenge as it arises.  Want to know more about our school? Please get in touch!
