Brentwood prepared me for collage with its high level academics and schedule. Brentwood’s teachers are what make the difference with this school, teachers like Mr. Baker in English offer you a whole new view of the subject and life itself. He taught me to keep an open mind! And changed the way I wrote for the better!

My wrestling coach Blair was phenomenal. He coached integrity, intensity, precision and persistence. He held the line with our team and kept respect as a priority. But he knew how to laugh and have a good time with the guys. I have become more humble and thankful for what I learned wrestling at Brentwood. Wishing coach Blair the best in retirement.

I was very prepared for my collage courses. I owe it to this great school... Brentwood High

I loved the easy access to high-level AP and honors courses. At Brentwood, I was able to explore a wide range of interests. Brentwood prepares their students for state testing and standardized testing very well. I also had very supportive teachers with who I easily formed bonds. However, because of how high achieving Brentwood High School is, the environment is stressful. I feel like it can be bad for students' mental health because it is the expectation to get straight A's and above-average ACT scores. I formed many great friendships over the almost 4 years I've attended, and I'll be sad to leave in 2021.
This school provides a strong learning environment and sets their students up for success. A lot of times, however, there is a lot of pressure they put on kids to do well and out perform other kids. Because Brentwood values high achievement in the classroom there is a lot of pressure within the environment. Kids are often too pressured or make comparisons to one another. Even if they are successful it is still a difficult aspect of this school for many students.
After graduating I know I will be set up for a successful college experience. Brentwood high offers a myriad of classes for students to choose from. They also have a great balance of fun sports and club activities outside of the classroom that give even more power to the high school experience. Brentwood is a strong school that has a lot of good resources for everyone.
I would recommend Brentwood high to someone looking for quality education along with success both in and out of the classroom. Brentwood is one of the best
