I always feel safe at Brentwood Academy with their state of the art security systems and team of officers. The food is hand made by Chef Rick and his team every day, and it is almost always good with a few options to pick from every day. The AP and Honors teachers are outstanding, with lots of knowledge in their respected classes, however, the regular class teachers are not very qualified, with many being sports coaches teaching out of a textbook. The sports are fantastic and as a student you are required to do some kind of physical activity after school. There are not very many extra clubs but the few we have are actually quite good, including the robotics club which is a world contender. The college counselors are fantastic and help you throughout every step of test taking and admissions to help you get into a college of your choice. They really know what they are doing and have years of experience with many connections at most of the major schools.
This school prepared me for college academically but that's about all I got out of it. There are some great teachers that genuinely care about you but a lot of the policies are discriminatory. Their main focus is on Athletic Program. The athletes (specifically the more talented ones) get preferential treatment when it comes to discipline and academic leniency. For a christian school that promises to love, nurture and provide spiritual growth, I saw a lot of hypocrisy, unchristian like policies, and it actually hindered my spiritual growth. If I had to do it over I would not attend BA and would've saved my parents a LOT of money.
I cannot put that they are the best because some of the teachers, honestly, are not. I was in AP and honors classes and those teachers really are phenomenal! They are completely willing to help whenever they can and however helps you most. They are welcoming of ideas and very inclusive. They are not worried about going off their lesson plan and work well with rolling with the class that day.

The "regulars" teachers range from great to awful. This is partially due to having coaches as teachers. Some of the coaches really are great teachers and know what they are talking about, while others are clueless and have been caught looking up youtube videos before class on how to teach their lesson for the day.

If you are an honors/ AP track or are not afraid to ask these teachers for help if you are on the regular track, then this school has a fantastic group of teachers. If you are not likely to go ask for the help that you need, then it will be as easy to do well if you are struggling. There are always exceptions, though.
