About Us

Hollis and Brookline

Hollis is a town in Hillsborough County, New Hampshire, United States. The population was 7,684 at the 2010 census. The town center village is listed on the National Register of Historic Places as Hollis Village Historic District. The town was incorporated in the province of New Hampshire on April 3, 1746 as Holles but later was switched to Hollis, which is another story altogether.

The Town of Brookline is located in Hillsborough County, New Hampshire with a population of 5011 as of 2011. First a part of Dunstable, Massachusetts, then settled as West Hollis, the town was granted in 1769 as Raby. Governor John Wentworth named it after his cousin, the 4th Earl of Strafford and Baron of Raby Castle. The town was renamed in 1798 at the suggestion of a leading citizen who was originally from Brookline, Massachusetts.

Today, the towns of Hollis and Brookline have a thriving equestrian community, with much of the landscape encompassing gently rolling pastures, apple orchards, and picturesque local farms and farmhouses. The towns also serve as bedroom communities for the Boston area as well as major New Hampshire cities.

SAU 41 serves three school districts:

  • Brookline, a PreK-6 elementary district consisting of the Richard Maghakian Memorial School (Grades PreK-3) and the Captain Samuel Douglass Academy (Grades 4-6)
  • Hollis, a grade PreK-6 elementary district consisting of the Hollis Primary School (Grade PreK-3) and the Hollis Upper Elementary School (Grade 4-6)
  • Hollis Brookline Cooperative School District serving grades 7-12 in two buildings, the Hollis Brookline Middle School (Grades 7-8) and the Hollis Brookline High School (Grades 9-12).



Attention: Dear members of the Hollis-Brookline, Brookline, and Hollis school communities. It has recently come to our attention that a number of fundraising and “crowdfunding” websites (e.g., GoFundMe, DonorsChoose) have been created to raise money for schools, classrooms, extracurricular activities, and other school-related purposes. While we support any effort to give back to the school community and support our students, unfortunately, some of these webpages use the school districts’ name and mascot to, among other things, attempt to get users to make private donations. Please be aware that these webpages are not affiliated with and have not been approved or sanctioned by the Hollis-Brookline Cooperative School District, Brookline School District, Hollis School District or SAU 41 in any way.

If you have any questions about this notice or would like to make a donation to any of the School Districts and/or their programs, please do not hesitate to contact Kelly Seeley, Business Administrator, SAU 41 (central office for all Hollis and Brookline schools) at kelly.seeley@sau41.org or 603-324-5999.

Superintendent's Message

It was the great lyricist Oscar Hammerstein who wrote, “June is bustin' out all over.” All we have to do is to look around us to realize how appropriate that line is. Trees have broken out in leaves, flowers abound, and all around us seems to be bursting with life.

There is a spirit within each of us that wants to walk under those trees, to smell those flowers, and to be a part of summer. That spirit bursts from within us now, and we are anxious to be out of school and into the life under the summer sun.

This is as it should be. We are meant to enjoy life, and the summer offers us opportunities we have at no other time of the year. Yet, it is also a time when we must pause for a moment to remember that we are completing another year of school. And, while summer brings a momentary end to school, it does not bring an end to our education.

Our students over these past ten months have worked at their studies and learned many things which they did not know when school began. What our students learned was the result of many factors, not the least of which was their efforts; their individual efforts.

Now this school year draws to an end and summer approaches, but student learning continues, for all of life is school, and we learn by everything we do. This year in school has continued your education for life, but it is life itself that will complete your education.

It is my sincere wish for each and every one of you that the coming summer hold only pleasant experiences for all of us. May you live life to the fullest; may you enjoy it; and – may you learn.

Have a good summer!
