Taught by our fabulous Brentwood Middle School teachers and guided by Brentwood School's Core Values, this two-week program lays the foundation for middle school students to develop academic and interpersonal skills to ease the transition into and continuation of Middle School. This year's abbreviated program will help students learn study skills and course-specific strategies in English and math. In English class, students can expect to improve reading comprehension; develop critical thinking skills; learn how to annotate, organize, and take notes; and brush up on grammar and linguistic skills appropriate for each grade level. Math classes offer instruction in 6th Grade math, pre-algebra, and algebra, and focus on seeing problems from different angles, reasoning and justifying methods, and attending to precision.
