Brentwood Academy serves approximately 450 Kindergarten through 5th grade students in 18 classrooms. We have a diverse and inclusive community. All Brentwood students participate in a core English Language Arts, Math, Social Studies, and Science program. All students are also taught Visual Art, music and Physical Education by credentialed specialists in those content areas. While the students are engaged in their “Specials Program” (Art, Health and Wellness, and Physical Education) the grade level collaborates to discuss lessons, academic data, and behavioral data to best meet the needs of each student in every class. Interventions are put in place for students who need extra support. Instruction is designed to meet the needs of all students.
The staff is committed to providing a safe and welcoming campus to students and parents. Committees have been created to meet this goal. Staff are involved in the following committees: Family Engagement, Positive Behavior and Intervention Support, Academic, Safety, and Fundraising. Parents participate in Brentwood’s School Site Council and English Language Advisory Committee. There are also quarterly family events planned to engage both students and parents. Some examples of our family nights are Math and Literacy Night, and Specials Night. The Brentwood staff believes in building community through positive engagement. There are school-wide incentive programs for academics, attendance, and behavior. Students are recognized for success in these areas both individually and as a class. Each morning the school meets for our Morning Assembly to start the day together with a common message. Directly following the Morning Assembly each class participates in a Morning Meeting in which each student is greeted by name and is given the opportunity to share. At that time the schedule for the day is reviewed and a behavior lesson plan is taught. Each Friday the school community gathers in the cafeteria to recognize student achievement and sing together.
