Brentwood Elementary 5

I had the pleasure of teaching at Brentwood for the past three years but am relocating to another town due to my husband's job. I love the Brentwood community so much! My students, and especially their parents, were my favorite part of the job. I loved seeing my students' smiling faces every morning and having the privilege of being their teacher. I felt very supported and loved by parents as I tried to keep them in the loop and meet their children's individual needs. This is a community that cares about its children. I really enjoyed working with Mr. Epler, Mr. Fitts, and the other teachers as we worked hard and pushed ourselves to become better educators. I would highly recommend Brentwood Elementary, and I will miss it so much.

This is a great school! The staff is loving/caring and professional. The students are super sweet. My child has been here for 3 years and LOVES everything about it. I am thankful that my family is apart of the Brentwood Family! If you are looking for a great educational experience then check it out! The STEM program is an amazing way for children to learn hands on in the classroom and the STEM labs.

Classrooms are not diverse at all. The teachers spend more time worried about behavior through the class dojo program, rather than accessing the chillds individual needs. I do not recommend this school at all! Teachers think they are parents and fail to perform their job properly. It's like as long a they get a paycheck who cares about the child. I absolutely can't wait to remove my child from this school!!

Mr. Williams the janitor! You are awesome to acknowledge children that do not belong to you or teach.

Teachers do not care enough to worry about the well being of a child. They focus on a child's behavior oppose to why the child has behavior issues and how to solve them.

There is not enough one on one help. 20-26 students in the classroom, budget cuts...where is the support coming from?

Brentwood Elementary
Develops respect: Disagree

My son does not do the pledge of allegiance and for that he was punished. His teacher took points away from him each time he did not pledge. Unethical behavior but I can say things have improved in that area as I went and spoke to the principal about it.


Brentwood Elementary
Develops empathy: Neutral

Some of the staff do care and ironically that staff is maintenance. When my son needs someone he can talk to or someone he can relate with it's the maintenance man that will take the time and listen to what my son has to say and will take into consideration his perspective on issues.

Not fairness to the child because children are not always able to express themselves accordingly and the administration and teachers will take that as a misbehaved child.
