610 Weight Room

At over 1500 square feet, Brearley’s state-of-the-art weight room was built in 2023. Imagined as a space for physical education classes, athletics and the Brearley faculty and staff, the open and flexible design allows for large-group fitness and activities, smaller, sport-specific drills and individual training sessions . Durable, nonslip rubber flooring was installed to help with dampening vibration and noise. Windows on all three outfacing walls allow for an abundance of natural light and ventilation. The cardio conditioning area along the west wall includes Woodway treadmills, an elliptical machine, Assault bikes, and Concept 2 rowers. The weight room has an arsenal of free weights (dumbbells, kettlebells, sandbags, medicine balls), a dual cable column, and a decline leg press machine. The centerpiece of the room is the double-sided half rack for barbell movements. A Brearley identification card is required, as well as an on-boarding certification to use equipment. All students must be accompanied by an adult.

Dance Studios

Brearley has two dance studios that are dedicated spaces designed to facilitate dance training, practice and performances for students who are passionate about dance and the performing arts. It is a creative and inspiring environment that provides ample room for students to explore and express themselves through various dance styles. 

Brearley dance studios are large, open rooms with smooth, well-maintained dance floor that is suitable for various dance forms. Each dance studio has a wall that is lined with full-length mirrors, allowing dancers to observe their form, posture and technique while practicing. Mirrors are essential for self-correction and improvement in dance.

Randall’s Island

Brearley's soccer, field hockey, lacrosse and softball teams use the fields on Randall's Island for practices and games. The cross-country teams practice by running along the river from Brearley up and over the pedestrian bridge to Randall's. For a city school, Randall's provides an amazing array of fields for our students.
