Testimonials

“Part of the magic of Mr. Brock’s teaching is the way
he challenges his students. He sets high expectations, and he is
there as a teacher to guide and help his students to stretch their
intellect and self-imposed limitations.”

R. Todd and Stacey M. Grandy, Student’s Parents

“The Class of 2010 wholeheartedly agreed to dedicate this year’s
yearbook to Mr. Brock. Since the very beginning of our Upper
School years, he has made a lasting impression on our class. He is
genuinely engaging and is able to make even the most passive students
actively want to learn the material. He has motivated our class
with his knowledge of all subjects and instilled in us a genuine love of
learning that we will take with us to college and beyond.”
