Saturday night was the annual Snowball gala featuring a spectacularly decorated Crooks Hall, a sumptuous dinner, a photo booth, and, to the embarrassment of some, a very successful hypnotist.

As Mrs Biesenthal excitedly stated in a recent post, Cake Race 2019 is now in the books for our Brentwood Rowers!

As winter creeps up on Brentwood students with report cards and the end of our first term, there are many changes going on. As the good weather comes to an end, so too do first term sports.

Aug 02, '19

My first memory of Mr Felix was meeting him during Orientation of my first year. My father had just left, and in a sudden flash, I realized I was alone in the middle of nowhere.
