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)

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. The School Districts and SAU 41 are not responsible for any financial liability or other loss associated with these webpages. If you choose to visit these webpages or websites, please know that you do so at your own risk.
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 email@example.com or 603-324-5999.
As we quickly approach April, I want to provide you with an update regarding a variety of subjects.
Our budget season ended with Town and School elections on Tuesday, March 21. On behalf of the SAU, please allow me to extend my thanks to the voters of Brookline, Hollis, and the Cooperative District for supporting our educational requests.
March has also seen us produce school plays, end a successful athletic season, and begin preparations for spring. At the high school, our seniors are receiving notifications of acceptances from colleges. At the primary, elementary, and middle school levels, staff and administration are working diligently regarding the transition process for our students.
In early April, we will be finalizing the school calendar for the 2017-2018 school year. It is our goal to have the calendar approved and posted by April vacation.
In closing, I want to say thank you to our families for sharing your students with us on a daily basis. As I have stated in the past, our staff and students are doing remarkable work, and I feel privileged to serve as their Superintendent.
