Lower School K-6:
The Lower Division provides a learning atmosphere filled with endless possibilities. Children are encouraged to be curious and creative while developing confidence in their abilities. The curriculum is traditional in nature with an emphasis on reading, writing, and math, yet the teaching and learning process is child-centered. Written and designed by the faculty, our program is unique to Brentwood School. Grades study various themes integrated with the subjects of social studies, science, and other “special” subjects. Basic skills are taught, and the thematic approach encourages students to retain their enthusiasm and love for learning at the same time.

Grades study various themes integrated with the subjects of social studies, science, and other "special" subjects. Basic skills are taught, but the thematic approach encourages students to retain their enthusiasm and love for learning at the same time. Lessons employ day-to-day real life experiences and knowledge, making learning fun, meaningful, and participatory.
Middle School 7-8:
In the Middle Division, our emphasis is on deep understanding and wide participation, as well as learning how to learn. As students begin to take more responsibility for their own learning, the faculty remains supportive and nurtures curiosities and competencies. Teachers work together to build explicit links between subjects to deepen students’ understanding of the world in which they live and to enable students to consider higher-level thinking. Our hope is to engender wonder and a belief in every student s/he is a powerful learner.
In addition to preparing students for life after the Middle Divison, Brentwood School provides experiences that allow students to grow intellectually, physically, and morally. We believe that we should prepare our students to be confident, independent, and responsible citizens. It is also our aim to help students learn to lead their day-to-day lives with compassion and kindness and to serve the needs of others. Finally, it is the fervent hope of Brentwood School's Middle Division that students will gain not only vision but also joy in the discovery and fulfillment of that vision. We hope that they will be endowed with the moral fiber to work through difficulty toward a true understanding of the way in which individual goals can harmonize with the greater good of the world in which we live. Our Middle Division's programs are committed to this development.
Upper School 9-12:
Brentwood students are immersed in a rigorous college preparatory environment that challenges them to become critical thinkers, articulate and persuasive writers, and ethical decision makers. To complement our robust academic offerings, we encourage students to pursue their interests in the fine and performing arts and through our myriad interscholastic options. Students develop the research, writing, and presentational skills that will equip them to meet the challenges of a 21st century global economy.
Our curriculum challenges students to take academic risks. We offer twenty-three Advanced Placement classes, numerous honors level courses, and independent study courses (e.g., organic chemistry, German philosophical thought, beginning and advanced Greek, etc.) that provide students the opportunity to study disciplines with greater depth and complexity.
With the support of their teachers, counselors, and administrators, students are encouraged to take risks while balancing their competing interests. Ultimately, our goal is to graduate poised, confident, curious, and balanced students.
Summer at Brentwood offers an exciting range of classes and activities for children entering 1st-12th grade in the greater Los Angeles area.
Summer at Brentwood is located on the East Campus of Brentwood School. The 30 acre campus offers state of the art facilities including a competition swimming pool, multiple athletic fields, championship tennis courts, and technology integrated classrooms. Our team of dedicated faculty, staff, coaches, and counselors are here to provide a memorable experience for your child.
The mission of the arts at Brentwood School is to inspire personal and intellectual growth through the exploration, critical analysis and disciplined practice, and ultimately the shared experience of creative expression. Our arts faculty, artists and performers themselves, offer instruction in visual arts, dance, music, and theater. In every course, our teachers strive to foster self-knowledge, a willingness to experiment and take risks, an understanding that through art we create and reflect culture, and a commitment to the creative process. Exhibits, recitals, and productions throughout the year celebrate our students’ accomplishments.
The creative process is not a straight line. In class, each student engages in a series of projects or pieces that require continual rethinking, refining, revising, and rehearsing. And, it is this dynamic of disciplined effort and imaginative response that underscores the creative process in all the arts.
Students participating in the Arts Program at Brentwood School will find a supportive atmosphere that promotes questioning, individuality and diversity. They will be guided by a faculty who are all engaged in the creative process themselves in their individual art forms, and this ensures that the relationship between faculty and student is based on the reality that we are all doing the same work but at different levels. It is a comfortable, mentoring relationship.
At Brentwood School, we believe participation on interscholastic athletics teams enriches the academic experience making it an integral part of every student’s education and personal growth. We view sports as logical extensions of the classroom and we see coaches as teachers on the fields and courts. Thanks to the hard work of these dedicated teacher-coaches and coupled with the enthusiastic participation of our talented student-athletes, we have cultivated and developed an established tradition of athletics excellence. But, winning alone is not enough at Brentwood. We place an even greater emphasis on winning the right way—that is, by Honoring the Game and by developing character with a focus on teamwork. Sports include Light Athletics, Football, Baseball, Basketball, Volleyball.
