Renbrook is proud to be a dynamic, dedicated community that brings learning to life for our students and their families. Through our Community Discovery Series, we provide programming that addresses thoughtful and relevant topics in education for Renbrook’s greater community. We hope you will join us as we hear from school and community experts and engage in meaningful dialogue with each other. Guests are welcome for events open to the public – invite a friend!

If you have feedback and/or ideas for topics, please contact Betsy Flynn at bflynn@renbrook.org
