First impressions of the new building!

A new classroom in the English department

On the morning of November 11th, Brentwood students arrived on campus for in-person learning for the first time since March. STUCO members and staff welcomed back students while staying safely socially distanced. They lined the sidewalk and cheered for the newcomers and returning students.

While students and teachers alike were logging into zoom, construction was still underway. Classrooms were being remodeled, and additional improvements were being made to the school. When the Brentwood kids first stepped into the “new school,” several students had mixed feelings about the new building.

Sophomore Amelia Van Uum expresses that, “[the new building] feels a lot more open and spacious, and the colors are more neutral.” Many other students believe that the style has become more modern and monochrome and not as flashy and bright as it once was. 

Junior Jonas Wall explains the new building in three words, “Modern, chic, and suave.” 

For many other students, the changes that were made were a little subpar. Freshman Kennison Cheatam says, “I think the new building is very nice, but it’s kind of bland.” 

From a senior’s perspective, senior Konrad Bradt shares that, “When I first saw the school it was kind of weird. I thought more would be done, but the sight of new classrooms, furniture, and hallways, made me feel somewhat comforted that work was actually being done.”

At the end of the day, students are thankful to even have the opportunity to come back to school amidst the craziness of construction and COVID-19. No matter what the school looks like, the Brentwood community has come together to have a strong finish to this unpredictable school year.
