Department Overview

  • Brunswick City Schools recognizes that education varies for each child. Therefore, we offer a variety of services to help each child his or her full potential. Stretching across the entire district and reaching students in all grade levels, Student Services not only coordinates programming for students identified as having disabilities, students who are identified in the gifted range and students who are English Language Learners, but builds an educational foundation through Bright Beginnings, our five-start preschool. The Student Services Department offers a variety of services to support education, including:

    Counseling services

    Crisis intervention

    Nursing/healthcare

    Physical, occupational and speech therapy

    Psychology
