170 new students will be joining our school this fall and the school will open with just over 450 students. Our population remains roughly 70% Canadian and 10% American, while 20% will consist of students from almost 40 different countries around the world.
It is a marvelous time of year as we eagerly wait the 2012-2013 school year. While anticipation is obviously high for another successful year in the academics, arts and athletics, it is equally high for the deep friendships that will form quickly in September in our nurturing boarding culture.
Brentwood is an extra-special place; it is unlike any other school I have ever seen. It will again become the new home-away-from-home for so many prospective students from nations as far away as Brazil, Tanzania, Thailand and England. It will be a place where new discoveries will be made about each other and about ourselves. It will be a life-altering experience.
I know that the new Head of School, Mr. Bud Patel, and his family and staff, are eagerly awaiting your arrival. Mr. Patel thrives on the energy of being surrounded by young people and he will want to get to know all of you by name as quickly as possible. Be sure to introduce yourself.
If you are new to Brentwood College School, welcome to this amazing place. If you are returning, we can’t wait to see you again!
