Fright Week 2018

Nov 11, '18

I’ll never forget my Spanish roommate last year saying to me that, “it’s like from an American Movie”, during Halloween week. And when I thought about it, I realized that she was right, Brentwood’s ‘Fright Week’ is pretty much the quintessential October that all of us love. Fright week 2018 kicked off on Thursday the 25th, with all the students...

Home Schooled to Boarding School

Nov 01, '18

Growing up in community on a small island is not your typical childhood. However, it has been something I will never forget.
