“America’s future walks through the doors of Brentwood Middle School each day!” Located in Greeley, this IB World School has been designated as a 2019 Colorado School to Watch. Brentwood is a thriving learning community where staff and students and families work together to provide a rich and robust learning experience for each and every child.
The faculty at Brentwood Middle School engage in deep professional learning, utilizing their collaboration time to design personalized and challenging inquiry-based units of study attuned to the needs of their students. Faculty often visit each other’s classes and observe each other teach.
The professional culture at Brentwood mirrors the student culture based on inquiry and continuous growth. Students regularly engage in reflective practice analyzing their growth as they strive to meet the goals they set for themselves. Students participate in student-led conferences on a regular basis and develop the habit for articulating their personal successes and opportunities for growth.
In addition to strong academics, students have access to a wide range of enrichment opportunities. Over 90% of Brentwood students choose to be involved in their award-winning band and music programs. Each student is expected to participate in at least one extra-curriculum activity which strengthens student-school activity and creates opportunities for passion-based learning that can transcend into high school.
The staff is led by Principal Nicole Petersen, Assistant Principal Heather Severt, and Assistant Principal William Fearn.
