Brentwood High school is a diverse school filled with all students who have dreams to become doctors, lawyers, teachers, engineers, and etc. Curriculum is tough on students to prepare them for college. Brentwood high school is always being involved with the community. Allowing students to help the community and school. I would only like to change one thing... have Brentwood High School receive more recognition!

Being a student at Brentwood Highschool from my sophmore year to my senior year has been a great highschool exprience. All the students at BHS have so much school spirit. For example, sports. If there any sport events going on, guarateed the stands will be filled up with students, parents and alumnis. I have been on the varsity soccer team since ninth grade and I loved every sinlge year. Playing for my school is the best experience I had throughout my highschool years. We also have great relationships with our teachers, deans and principals. Most of us even have our teaches as mentors. The clubs and activities we have contribute to our school in so many ways. All the students are commited to the clubs they are in and enjoy it. Despite all the things that have happened in our community we stay strong and build off of those things. As a senior now, I have to say I will miss Brentwood Highschool.
Overall Brentwood high school is unique and special in their own way. We have a variety of students from different countries which allows us to interact and meet new people. We as students learn the different cultures and how each one of us as students have something that define us. The students accept each other and give us the chance to speak our mind without being judged. Something the school can change is the amount of students the schools holds. At times the hallways are crowed and we don't have enough time to get to the following class. If the number of students enroll can decrease by 100, it might make a change.
