Details about the Celebration

Join us for a weekend of programming, discussion, food, and entertainment to celebrate 50 years of School Within a School!  On June 10th, 11th and 12th we will gather at Brookline High School to share memories, visit with classmates, meet current SWS students and spark new discussions about the importance of democratic education. 


The SWS 50th Celebration kicks off Friday night at 7 pm with informal potlucks organized by volunteer alumni "Coordinators“ from your time in SWS. Gather with SWS friends-- or make new ones-- from the years before or after you. Find out what they remember, loved, and struggled with, in an informal setting. Share a dish and a story. PLEASE RSVP TO YOUR POTLUCK BY CONTACTING THE ORGANIZER. If you are a more recent graduate of SWS (Class of 2015-2022), the Friday night potluck will be held at BHS. Current SWS students are planning an event for you!


On Saturday, June 11 we will have a full day of activities at Brookline High School.  Some of these events will include tours of the new buildings and of the 4th floor, interest-based workshops facilitated by alums, a massive Town Meeting, lunch, dinner, and an evening of entertainment with alumni and current SWS students performing. *We will also film and stream our Town Meeting for those of you who might not be able to attend in person, along with a few other workshops.*


On Sunday, June 12 we will wrap up the festivities from 10 am-12 pm with interest-based groups, reflections on the weekend, and a chance to say goodbye.

*Current SWS students & Alums of Color are invited to join a special brunch on Sunday at 11 am.  Please RSVP HERE.

Are you interested in attending?  Please do the following:

  1. Head over to "tickets" and register for the event.  

  2. Head over to "donate" to help us cover the cost of hosting this event.  We are acutely aware that not everyone can afford our registration fee. We believe that SWS alumni will help each other out by giving generously when possible. If you are able, we hope you will consider making a larger donation to support the ongoing work of SWS.

Looking forward to seeing you all,

COVID Policy

Covid Policy:

We are so excited to finally be having this event in person!


We will adhere to the most up-to-date Covid policies of the Town of Brookline and the Public Schools of Brookline. This will likely continue to be updated as the date of the event approaches, so please check this link. CURRENTLY, THE TOWN IS REQUIRING MASKS IN ALL TOWN-OWNED BUILDINGS INCLUDING SCHOOLS.


In addition, given that we will have many attendees coming from many different places, and we don't want to be a super-spreader event, we ask all attendees to take an at-home Covid test before arriving. We ask anyone who tests positive not to attend.


We ask anyone with cold/flu/covid symptoms not to attend. 


We will have masks and hand sanitizer available at the event.
