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.
Brentwood High no doubt the best school in the state of Tennessee. The school is not just a place full of education, it is a place full of school spirit. This school did not only prepare me for my future, it helped me find many interests. With a school this large it can be very overwhelming, but with the amount of opportunities offered, you are guaranteed to find a group of friends. The teachers are truly incomparable. You will not find any other teachers who will be as invested in you, as the teachers are at Brentwood High School. The teachers each day take time out of their lunch to meet with students who need help. These teachers truly want you to be the best you can be. Brentwood High School also is unstoppable in sports. The amount of state championships we have won is insane. I had the best experience at Brentwood High School.
