Brentsville District High School has excellent academics, teachers, and extracurricular activities. College Readiness is very good at Brentsville and made my first year of college better because of the teachers and the curriculum they taught. Administration works closely with all departments in the building to ensure that every subject receives enough resources. Resources include textbooks that are up to date and lab safety equipment for hands on learning. Sports and clubs at Brentsville advocate for themselves and reach out to all students. They encourage their peers to become involved in school through their interests and there are many clubs and sports teams for everyone to find something they are interested in joining.

I recently transferred to Brentsville during my Junior Year of high school. At first, I enjoyed the school due to the smaller population and high amount of school spirit. Everyone participated in spirit weeks, pep rallies, etc. and there was a high amount of involvement in after school sports, clubs, and community service. However, many teachers would play VERY OBVIOUS favorites and sometimes would not even know what they are talking about in regards to their subject. The Cambridge Program was not taken seriously and was not taught very well by teachers. Admin was not serious about punishment or rules; kids would skip all the time and nothing would be done or reported to admin. The school itself is lacking in diversity. A large majority is white and much of the student does not understand how to appreciate diversity or other cultures. Some teachers and students have tried to change the culture, however there has been push back.
The one thing I enjoyed about Brentsville was the Cambridge International Program that comes from the Cambridge University in England and provides the students with college level classes that emphasize critical thinking skills. The Cambridge program helped prepare me for college by providing more in depth knowledge of history, literature, art, science, math, and social sciences. The Cambridge program not only provided me a more academically challenging class environment, but it also provided me a place where I was surrounded by students my age that have a desire to learn and a passion for knowledge and understanding. It allowed me to broaden my academic horizon and encouraged me to pursue my dream of higher education in an accredited institution and not settle for anything less than what I deserve.
