LESSONS AT BRENTWOOD SCHOOL EMPLOY DAY-TO-DAY REAL LIFE EXPERIENCES AND KNOWLEDGE MAKING LEARNING FUN, MEANINGFUL, AND PARTICIPATORY.

As you walk onto our beautiful campus and into our classrooms, one is struck by the excitement generated by all members of our school community. Our atmosphere is informal and friendly and there is a “buzz” throughout the school.

Students are active participants in the educational process where they learn with and from one another. Our faculty and staff work collaboratively as well, using a variety of flexible groups to best meet the needs of each student. Our program is vigorous and we strive to encourage and inspire active learners who think critically, who value reflection, and who take intellectual risks.

Brentwood School’s academic goals are balanced with our desire to promote personal growth. Through our Friday class meetings and Community of Caring program students are taught to respect and value others and themselves. Service is at the heart of the Brentwood education. Each grade level participates in a variety of activities throughout the year where students learn to give of themselves. Diversity is celebrated and cherished and students soon realize that each of our unique qualities enriches our community.
