Upper School (9-12)

During the course of a day in the Upper School, our students not only engage in rigorous academics but also reach beyond themselves to explore new interests and sharpen established skills.No two days are ever the same. We engage our students in real-world conversations, preparing them for the world they will live in, not just the one we grew up in. Constantly innovating our teaching methods, we care for our students and challenge them to validate and understand other's perspectives and to grow in understanding and empathy. As they are known and seen, our students regularly pursue service and leadership opportunities. It's not surprising, then, that so many of our programs are student-initiated and student-run. Brentwood students pursue their curiosities at an impressive level of depth.
