    My own children attended Brentwood Elementary and then many of my grandchildren two are still enrolled. It's an excellent school does a great job of preparing students for middle and high schools. Some of the teachers who taught my own children have taught my grandchildren -- a really great teaching staff!

    My son had a horrible experience at Central last year. We moved to the Brentwood district and we LOVE IT! The principal is very nice and approachable the front office staff bend over backward to help with whatever you need and the PTA is awesome. Mrs. Edwards who teaches 2nd grade is an amazing teacher. I could tell from the first parent teacher con. that she actually understands my son cares about his learning and does everything she can to make school a positive and fun experience. Last year my son said he hated school hated reading and got average grades. This year with Mrs. E he loves school gets straight A's and is reading (all the time!) well above grade level. Discipline is fair positive and focused on changing the behavior not simply punishment. I cannot say enough good things about this school or Mrs. Edwards!

    As a parent whos children have been attending Plainfield Schools from the start I feel I can give a good review of the schools. Brentwoods Principal is what makes this school run so well. In my opinion the teachers reflect the leadership of their principal. He is always plesant and willing to help in any way he can. Every parent student and teacher (from what I have seen) are treated with dignity and respect. They focus on education for ALL the students not just the ones whos parents are on the board of the PTO. The education my children have recieved from this schools tops any around and I can say that from experience from dealing with other schools personaly.

    Brentwood Elementary has a 4 star rating. Heavy emphasis is put on Reading and Math. Music Art and sports are also part of the regular curriculum. Parents are very involved in every aspect teacher aides fund raisers sports. I feel a well rounded education is available. The teachers are caring and go the extra mile for each child. The principle is a very involved and visible influence in the school. He makes each child feel special.
