We don't think test scores are everything, but we know that tests like NWEA that measure each kid's growth say much more about a school's impact than tests like the ISAT. Brentano, as a neighborhood school, accepts students of all backgrounds. There is no test to get in and Brentano's students haven't had to win the lottery to be accepted. We couldn't be happier to have even more evidence of Brentano's success pushing all kids ahead. That's what makes Brentano such a remarkable place. As parents, that's exactly what we want in a school, and that's why we're so glad to be part of the Brentano family.
Please join us in congratulating the Brentano family on this tremendous achievement! To learn more about Brentano or to take a tour, please email any of us or visit http://www.friendsofbrentanoschool.org/. We still have pre-K and Kindergarten spots (as well as upper grade openings) for 2013.
