Greetings from the Office of the Superintendent
Greetings PSB Families and Staff!
Welcome to the 2022-23 School Year!
I write to you today filled with gratitude, excitement, and great anticipation for the new year; I look forward to welcoming each and every student.
The Public Schools of Brookline is a school district with a rich history of excellence. As a community, we aim to cultivate a joy and love of learning within students that extends beyond our classrooms. With the support of our educators, caregivers, and community members, we are committed to seeing every student by face and name. We ensure that everyone we come in contact with feels seen and heard.
In PSB, we eliminate and overcome barriers, deliver a high-quality education, and foster a culture of care. These themes were developed as I engaged with our classrooms and schools throughout the 2021-22 school year to better understand our community as a whole. For this school year, I look forward to building upon our history and charting the next leg of the journey.
We’ll see you at school very soon. It’s going to be an amazing year!
With PSB Pride,
Linus J. Guillory Jr., PhD
