Student Profiles

This year, The Stony Brook School asked a group of twelve students to share about themselves and their experiences here.  We think you'll find the profiles below are a great way to learn about SBS through the eyes of a student.

    My SBS Story:

    "Stony Brook does not feel like just a regular school. It feels like a family. The teachers make learning in their classes fun, and the campus is beautiful. In times of need, like Hurricane Sandy, we all become closer as a family and help each other. After school, the fun continues. For those who have sports practice, they head off for a fun and exciting 2 hours of practice. But, for those that don't have sports practice, they can either study in the library with friends, go to Dunkin' Donuts, or watch a sports game! SBS is awesome. :)"

    "When I first came to Stony Brook, I didn't really know what to think, but as I began to make friends and really grow closer to other students and faculty, I began to greatly enjoy it here. I have made many amazing friendships that I feel are stronger than many of my previous friendships. I have also made great friendships with many of my teachers, which is something I never had before. Although I was at first very hesitant to come to Stony Brook, I'm glad I decided to, because it has been a great experience."
