Dear Students, Parents, Faculty, Staff, Alumni and the whole extended Brent Family,

Our accreditation visit by the committee from the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) concluded on Thursday, November 12. The visiting committee’s report was remarkably positive. They said, among other things, that, “The school should be proud of the fact that the Brent spirit and culture shines through and reflects a school that is vibrant, caring and compassionate.”

A huge “Thank you” goes out to everyone who helped give feedback for our Self Study and those who served on our many Focus Groups. A special thanks is owed to Mr. Wyks who spearheaded the entire study.

The WASC Focus on Learning review process takes several years, and is challenging in the best of times. These have not been the best of times, and to complete this accreditation online while delivering a rigorous distance learning program is a testament to the remarkable people who make up our community.

Our hard-working students, their supportive families, and the dedicated professionals in every department and at every level throughout our school have created a community that is greater than the sum of its parts, and the WASC committee could see your commitment and the warm, caring culture you have created.

Thank you all.

Sincerely,
Jason Atkins
Headmaster
