Brentwood High School is the best school I could've gone to for my 4 years of high school. I wouldn't have trusted my education with anyone else. The small community that makes you feel like you have a family. The small class sizes, which make you feel like your teachers know you extremely well. The amazing students that will get to walk across that stage with you, when the time comes. My peers and teachers always pushed me to be my best, and I couldn't have asked for a better school. However, every school has its flaws. Brentwood is by no means perfect. There was a lot of ignorance about important things and a lot of different opinions about politics. Nonetheless, most people at Brentwood are open-minded, open to change, and ready to listen to whatever you have to say. Also, the administration makes it very easy to change something that you see wrong amongst your peers. All around, Brentwood is like a real family; that comes with drama and love. I couldn't have had a better 4 years.

I have been attending Brentwood since I was in kindergarten. The school system and the education is great as for the arts, sports, and clubs, they aren't so good. Brentwood High schools was awarded a Blue Ribbon school back in 2012 and is proud of it award. The staff pushes their students on doing their best and staying involved within the Brentwood community. Brentwood aslo preps the juniors for the act and offer a free act test. But, if you would like a decent score i would suggest reaching out and getting into a class of some sort because the prep is not all that helpful depending on the class that you're in. Brentwood offers a lot of AP class especially for science and english. Brentwood is also located in a safe neighborhood and is some what diverse. You and your family would love Brentwood and all it has to offer especially for academics.
I love the small high school experience. There is a no cut policy for sports so everyone gets to play. Plus, you get super involved because everyone has to participate in school activities for them to succeed! The teachers and administrators are really helpful and supportive. We have kids come in from other areas so even though we are a small community, we have a lot of diversity which I love. With the dual credit courses offered, I feel like I am ready for college next year. It would be nice to have newer facilities (no basement classrooms ;) but the hometown atmosphere more than makes up for that. I transferred in as a sophomore when my dad's job moved us to MO and Brentwood was the perfect school for me.
