A large percentage of Brentwood students come from the United States of America, so it is tradition for the school to hold an American Thanksgiving dinner in November, in addition to the Canadian Thanksgiving event in October.

We Are So Much More

Nov 25, '17

Below is the text of Glory's C's recent TEDx speech. At 9 years old, she was raped and bought off with an ice cream cone to keep it quiet that she had been alone with her cousin. She was pregnant by 14, and she gave birth to a chance to redeem herself from all the pain she had seen in the span of a decade. But two weeks later, that chance passed...

Reach for the Top

Nov 24, '17

So I don’t mean to brag, but I’d like to consider myself as a fairly intelligent individual. I get pretty good grades and people often view me as a smart guy. So when I heard that Interhouse Reach for the Top was coming up, I got excited. This could be a way to show the rest of the school just what kind of brilliance is housed between Privett and...

Karaoke in the Kaf

Nov 07, '17

It was a typical Thursday evening; Brentwood students and staff strolled into Crooks Hall, expecting another delicious meal. Except … it wasn’t a typical Thursday. Of course, the meal was fantastic, but on the far side of the building was a stage and a computer filled with songs for karaoke. Led by Ravi R, Rogers ‘18, & John E, Rogers ‘18, the SAC...

New to Brentwood

Nov 03, '17

I have to admit, there were a couple nights before coming to Brentwood where I tossed and turned in my bed for hours, trying to ease my anxiety.
