I have had a great experience at Brentwood High School. Academically we are we are very advanced, and there are many programs and classes that challenge even the smartest students. The school community is close, people constantly push each other to be the best they can. School spirit isn't that big of a deal, but it is easily looked past. Teachers and administration look at students as something more than a name on a roster, especially when teachers see that the students putting in a true effort. I believe that because of my high school education at BHS, I will be prepared to comfortably move on to college life.

Brentwood High School is an incredible school which gives students every chance of success. The student body is on the whole a tolerant, mature, and intelligent group of teenagers who try and will do their best. Nearly every teacher is an expert on their subject. Teachers like Dr. Marrero, Mrs. Pratt, and Mrs. Kleine Kracht each could work at the collegiate level but for the love of their students they stay- with so many AP classes available, the school nearly is a college! Beside the teachers, our Administration is very broad and accepting of nearly any student initiative and will work with students to accomplish their goals. I cannot imagine a stronger environment by which I want to raise my own children in the years to come.
My experiences at Brentwood High School were for the most part positive. The academica and teachers there are absolutely amazing, and I have already found myself knowing more about basic subjects than my fellow students in college with similar grades, and I credit this to the AP classes I took in high school. There is a wide range of course options, from 3D Art classes to AP Statistics. Other than academically however, I found the school lacking. There were few school events other than prom, and the building itself is very old with not enough places for the students to eat at lunch.
