Welcome to Middle School (Grades 6 – 8)

It is a pleasure to welcome you to Brent International School Manila for the 2018-2019 academic year. I feel certain that this year will be one of tremendous growth and opportunity for your child, and I look forward to sharing that experience with you and your family.

We all realize the critical nature of the middle school years for intellectual, emotional, and moral development. To this, Brent’s middle school program is designed to address the unique academic, artistic, physical, creative, and moral development of sixth, seventh, and eighth grade students. Through a carefully designed structure at each grade level, we provide a natural and developmentally appropriate transition from elementary school to middle school, and then from middle school to high school. Another strength of our program lies in a middle school advisory program designed to support, encourage, and guide students through the middle school years. Finally, a key element of the middle school program is the athletics/activities program that offers students the chance to try new skills and widen their perspectives. All of these experiences encourage the formation of new friendships, the gaining of new knowledge, and the creation of a meaningful common experience.

At Brent, we strive to create opportunities for students to discover the joy of learning, to foster strong, caring relationships with peers and adults, and to encourage sound decision making that is rooted in careful thought, empathy, and individual responsibility. We’re confident the Brent middle school program offers not only excellent classroom instruction but also an engaging, vibrant school community that starts each student on a path to a lifetime of intellectual growth, achievement, and ethical values.

The administration and faculty share a level of dedication in our work with your children because we believe in the pursuit of excellence in scholarship and character. We’re confident that the 2018-2019 school year will be a rewarding one.

If you have any feedback or questions, please feel free to contact me at middleschoolprincipal@brent.edu.ph to discuss your thoughts. I look forward to working with your family this year.

Sincerely,

Andy O'Hara
