Brentwood High School Reviews

The school has a very competitive-student culture first off. There's a notion of expectation that you simply just take lot's of honors and AP classes whether you like said classes or not. While this can be generally good for getting students to try to push themselves academically, it also leads to situations where people are not exactly in a class where they belong (some teachers themselves have even said this). On another note, the number of great teachers vastly outweighs the number of bad ones, and there's a pretty decent number of extracurricular activities available. On another hand though, bathroom stalls have been getting broken recently (though the school typically fixes them within a few weeks), and the administration has decided that the best way to deal with kids doing drugs in the restrooms is by completely barring off the restrooms (later at which they are reopened for a week before promptly getting shut down again for another couple weeks).

I've had some of the most engaging, thought-provoking, and inspirational classes during my years at Brentwood High. I will always remember how much I learned here! The teachers are so caring and determined to help you excel in every way!
I can't speak for every student here, but this has been my experience as a student who takes many AP courses and knows many people who rank very highly in their grade.

Most of the classes I've taken have been engaging and beneficial. The teachers tend to care about their students and are willing to take time out of their day to help, as long as you're genuinely trying. However, expectations are also very high--most of the people that I talk to are sleep deprived and stressed, but still not willing to take easier classes or fewer extracirriculars. It's pretty brutal how focused on college and grades people can be.

Despite that, people are pretty nice here, relative to many other high schools. There's very little noticeable or outright bullying, and students tend to be civil to each other and to teachers.
