    Extracurriculars: There are many, many, many options available. However, many are also niche-type and require times that either conflict with other clubs/sports or have to be in the "in-crowd" for that club to make any progress/impact/fun out of it.

    Educational Outcomes: Most of the teachers are great, and prepare you for college. Some (especially non-AP social studies) aren't great because they really only teach there because they're a coach of one of the school sports. The band program and math and science ddepartments have great teachers, especially in the Honors and AP area courses.

    Overall Experience: I have had an amazing high school experience at Brentwood High School and would do it all the same if I had to restart high school. The academic classes are challenging and rigorous and the wide range of electives are interesting and enjoyable. The friends I have made from my school will last a lifetime and all of the opportunities we have gotten from the school are memories I will never forget.

    Food: I personally do not purchase my lunch from the cafeteria, but I have heard many things about it. I would say it is somewhat above average with many options to choose from. There are healthy options but I don't think there are many vegan, kosher, or vegetarian specific meals. The desserts are delicious!!

    Administration & Policies: The administration at Brentwood High School is very serious and does not tolerate bad behavior. Teachers will let principals know if something inappropriate happens in class and it it promptly taken care of. Attendance is important to the administration and the policies are strictly followed.
