Vision

 
Our vision for the schoolhouse is a clean, handicapped accessible and functional building where we can host a variety of events new to the community as well as reviving some of the historical usages.  Our plans include:
  • Dances and Musical Gatherings
  • Art Shows and Bazaars
  • Classes and Lectures
  • Community Get-togethers
  • Movie Showings
The historical use of the Mountain Brook School for various educational events is fondly remembered by those who were involved.  We would like to see a return of events such as:
  • Medieval and Colonial Days
  • Holocaust Day of Hiding
  • Stream Surveys
  • Environmental Education
Our dedication to providing an educational facility leads us to also explore new avenues of education.  Ideas proposed include:
  • Poetry Retreats
  • Earth Day Activities
  • Opportunities for other volunteer projects
We believe restoring the school will make such ideas a reality.  It will also enable us to expand the use of the gym building to better accommodate the growing library project.
 
Mountain Brook School has always been a place that brings the community together.  Our hope is to continue in that path by renovating the buildings to a condition that can provide new memories for future generations.
