Learning support offered

The Student Services Program is designed to support students with mild learning differences. Brent's goal is to identify students’ individual learning needs, explore strategies on their behalf, and provide them with effective interventions and support. Students’ specific needs are generally met within the parameters of the existing curriculum, with minor accommodations or modifications. The full-inclusion model allows support teachers to work alongside the main classroom teachers. Support significantly decreases as students move up the grade levels since self-management skills are developed and demands for independent learning increase. Space is limited and each applicant is considered through Admissions on a case-by-case basis.

The school supports gifted, able and talented students

Yes.

Qualities and characteristics best defining the school

Brent Pride is the recognition that, through mutual respect, our school community is strengthened by our differences in culture, faith, and abilities. Brent Pride is our spirit of satisfaction as we achieve our goals, and is the camaraderie we feel when we celebrate the accomplishments of others. Most importantly, it is having a true connection and sense of belonging within the Brent Family. It is knowing that Brent is, and always will be, home.

Teaching approach of the school

The Brent academic curriculum ultimately flows from the ESLR-s. Each of our ten academic departments, however, is even further defined and driven by department content standards. Further, each set of standards is measurable at key developmental stages through sets of banded benchmarks.

Marzano (2003) conducted meta-analyses on studies spanning thirty-five years of research on school effectiveness. The school level factor with the greatest impact was a guaranteed and viable curriculum.

The Brent Academic Curriculum is operationalized into a published curriculum through the Understanding by Design (UBD) unit development framework. The UBD framework allows the Brent curriculum to satisfy Marzano’s suggested courses of action to close the gap in curriculum, including:

• Determine content priorities by identifying essential content or”unpacking”the standards and benchmarks;
• Ensure that, in the given time, essential content can be addressed;
• Organize essential content such that students have ample time to learn it;
• Ensure teachers address essential content
