Looking back, what I found truly special about Brockton was the sense of community. I knew everyone and everyone knew me, and that feeling of being known created a very safe environment for me to grow up. I deeply value community to this day, and find myself constantly searching for communities that give me the same feeling of belonging as I had at Brockton.
My time at Brockton was a unique and fulfilling experience, as I was immersed in a close-knit and supportive community. Because of this, I felt a strong sense of belonging and always felt comfortable being myself.
The most special thing about Brockton was, without a doubt, the people. The students, teachers, faculty, and parents always made each and every one of us feel like a valued part of the community. I loved it.
