a highly unique student culture,” says Patel. “These
are students who truly want to be here.”
Increasing Demand
Brentwood College School is an institution
with a reputation for fostering highly successful
individuals. To date, the school has produced 23
Olympians, as well as several notable political
and scientific visionaries.
With such a strong reputation, it’s no sur-
prise Brentwood continually attracts increasing
amounts of interested students. Patel notes that
he has witnessed significant growth over the
past 3-4 years.
“During the 2011-2012 school year, we were
at 446 students enrolled. We have 512 students
for the 2014-2015 year. That’s a large percent-
age increase in a short period of time.”
Patel continues, “We’ve increased our staff
accordingly; were very mindful of class sizes.
Every one of our faculty members act as advi-
sors to 8-12 student advisees throughout the
student’s time at Brentwood.”
The 2014-2015 year also brought demand
for a new Grade 8 preparatory day school
program. As several school districts in British
Columbia decided to include Grade 8 as part of
secondary school, moving the grade from the
traditional elementary or middle school cur-
riculum, Brentwood recognized the need to
educate its younger community members.
