AP Comparative Government 12 There is an endless combination of classes that students can take at Brentwood, but one of my personal favourites is the Comparative Government 12AP course, taught by Mr Wismer.

Law 12

Jan 29, '19

Apart from the obvious downfall or ruining the integrity of all my favourite legal movies, Law 12 is a truly fascinating and enjoyable course.

A Notable Night

Dec 01, '18

The Grade 8 class sat quietly in their seats waiting to receive their homework assignment. We all knew what was coming: Night of the Notables. Some were excited, some were terrified, and others didn’t know what to expect. But by the end of the lesson, we all knew what had to get done. Throughout weeks of preparation for the big night, with many...
