Many Paths to Explore

Brentwood School is a place where scholars, athletes, artists, and activists, inventors and aspiring leaders are all at home. It's also a place where one person can take on many of these roles. At Brentwood, we believe you should be—and be celebrated for—all the things you want to be.

"I really wanted to tackle both the musical as well as tennis, and my teachers made it possible for me to do both to the best of my ability. The faculty and staff are super supportive of everything that students have going on outside and inside the classroom."

"I've tried a lot of things at school. Some were good, some were not so good, but I never would've known if I hadn't tried."


Tyler F. '24

"At Brentwood, we have the opportunity to find activities we didn't know we had a passion for. Last year, I took a Robotics course, which I had never thought about trying. In English, we studied a music album and looked deep into the poetry of the lyrics. And in Global Studies, we learned about the UN Sustainable Goals and wrote letters to leaders and human rights defenders around the world. Every day, I get a chance to explore something new."

Drawing for Joy 

Each week, my preschool-aged children take turns in a frenetic show-and-tell of letter collages, pipe cleaner critters, and pastel stick figures. They joyously explain the significance of their art, echoing the week’s learning around phonics, metamorphosis, and friendship.

The Great Food Sort

This week, we started composting our food waste at the Lower School. This initiative, led by our 1st graders, will help keep food out of our landfills and eventually provide nutrient-rich soil that we can use right here on the West Campus. First graders were proud to share a video they made with our whole community at Flag on Monday morning and have been diligently practicing our new sorting system with the adults on campus this week. Starting next week, everyone will be placing their food scraps in our new, green food scraps bins, which will divert a significant amount of food waste from landfills.

Remarkable Potential

The learning experience at Brentwood is inspired by ambitious goals: for students to build sophisticated intellectual skills, to engage deeply with material, and to prepare for the challenges we know lie ahead, as well as those impossible to foresee.

Values in Action

As we guide our students, we strive to help them grow in integrity, self-understanding, resilience, and leadership. Our open and welcoming community is fostered through the daily living of our Core Values.

Innovative Leadership

By continuing to explore and evolve, we bring a unique vitality to the Brentwood experience. Nowhere is this spirit more clear than in the Belldegrun Center for Innovative Leadership, a groundbreaking initiative through which our teachers and students engage with real-world challenges in exciting ways.
