Brentwood School inspires every student to:
Think critically and creatively.
Shape a future with meaning.
Brentwood School provides its students with powerful intellectual challenges; however this is just one aspect of the Brentwood experience. Yes, our students excel in the classroom. They also achieve in arts and athletics and learn how a diversity-themed "Crayon Club" lunch can be a chance to invite the whole community into your culture. Our Lower School is rich with developmentally appropriate challenges, while building a foundation for future learning. As students move to the Middle and Upper Schools, they explore yoga meditation, improv, and coding, join the entrepreneurs club or Benefacta, our service learning honor society. They complete internships with ABC News and USC or UCLA Research Labs, and build leadership skills organizing a Young Women's Conference that draws participants from over 100 schools in Southern California. What's more, they have the chance to both try these many endeavors and to pursue them in real depth. At Brentwood School, young people find engaging academics and a world of other options, all with the goal of shaping a future with meaning.

Diversity mission statement
The Brentwood School community actively seeks diverse perspectives and embraces diversity, equity, and inclusion as essential. We create an environment that fosters openness and appreciation of multiple dimensions of culture and identity. We aim to engage mindfully in open and frequent dialogues to ensure that each member is valued, included, and respected. Diversity is in the fabric of who we are.
The six words of our motto drive Brentwood School: “Start curious. Stay curious. Go anywhere.” From our outstanding faculty fueling the fire of curiosity in our students, to the daily athletic and artistic risk taking and accomplishments that occur on our campus, to our service learning program that inspires deeper appreciation of the greater Los Angeles and global communities, Brentwood provides a myriad of opportunities to engage its students.
