Brentwood Middle School (BMS) has been educating students since 1972 in Williamson County, which is located approximately 10 miles from Nashville, TN. Our academic program is structured to meet the needs of all students by offering curriculum that includes language arts, math, social studies, science, and a wide variety of related arts. A relentless approach to instruction enables our school to create a culture of intentional and focused academic expectations, foster parent involvement and support, demand data-driven decisions, and incorporate rigorous instruction supported by relevant assignments. Through collaborative discussions, our content and grade level teams are continuously reevaluating instruction to be reflective of current educational trends, to incorporate new technology into lessons, and to discover new teaching strategies that will promote rigor in daily lessons, assignments, and assessments that meet all students' needs. Administrators and teachers continually redefine opportunities to promote student engagement. It is our philosophy to purposefully create programs where students develop a sense of belonging. These programs include Best Buddies, Model United Nations, Robotics, student government, jazz band, drama, athletics, and many more. Through partnering with students, parents, community, and school, BMS strives to develop a well-rounded student population. BMS works to open its doors to the community as often as possible, as we believe this encourages parents and community members to become more invested in partnering with BMS to successfully educate students. BMS strives to provide an exemplary educational experience by engaging, challenging, supporting, and empowering each student to build a foundation for lifelong success.
