Brentwood Reviews

I loved attending grade school in Brentwood. The teachers were amazing and really cared about the students. Some people are friendly and others not so friendly. I believe there are a lot of opportunities for Brentwood residents. The community is extremely diverse. As far as the safety goes, Brentwood has began to become an unsafe place. Many kids join gangs and make others uncomfortable and scared to walk down their own block. Many unfortunate situations have happened in this town and the one good thing that has come out of it is the community has begun to get closer. There are those that are apart of the community that strongly care about each other and their hometown known as Brentwood.
Review Brentwood
Brentwood high school is a school filled with diversity, equal opportunity, and hope. Attending has made me more informed and understanding of the world around me. It taught me that we are all capable of greatness if we aim for it. I have never felt unsafe, despite the crime that has recently occurred in the community. No community is perfect, there are crimes in every community- but because of our diversity, we are constantly under harsh scrutiny. I love Brentwood for all that it is, and all that it can be. I spent the majority of my life in this town, and I am thankful for it.
Brentwood is a great town with many attractions. The neighbors are close niche and many people seem to get along very well. The schools are in very close proximities to many neighbors and safety doesn't seem much of a concern to me nowadays. Nightlife may be lacking, however, it is the suburbs so you can't expact too much of a lively scene, but there still are a few places where people can kick back and relax to have a good time.
