Academic Awards chapel

We highly encourage parents/guardians and students to check running grades on BASIS. Here are the instructions: Accessing the BASIS Parent Portal Instructions.If you have any trouble logging into your parent portal account or student portal account, please don’t hesitate to contact Mr. Kurt Salvador via email at: Kurt Salvador <>.

For Grade 4-12 students:

With our stronger support systems, we will be observing the following guidelines:

                        Academic Warning

After each quarterly grade report, students who have earned one “F” or two “D”

grades, will be issued an Academic Warning by the Principal’s Office. Athletic

and activity privileges may be modified or reduced until improvements have been made. Remedial measures such as special after-school classes, tutoring or the Extra Help Program, will be recommended with the assistance of the Guidance Counselor.

Academic Probation

Students on academic warning for two consecutive quarters or students who have earned two or more “F” grades, one “F” and two “D” grades, or three or more “D” grades at the end of the semester will be placed on Academic Probation. A student on Academic Probation who does not show significant improvement by the end of the semester will likely be asked to withdraw from the school. The student’s social behavior and general attitude will play a major part in a decision for withdrawal or dismissal. Athletic and activity privileges may be suspended until improvements have been made.

The Extra Help Program will be arranged for students on academic probation.

Year-End Conditional Promotion

Students who have earned one “F” and one “D” in any subject may be promoted to the next grade. Summer tutorials, or enrolling in an online course may be recommended. In addition, students must demonstrate significant improvement in all academic areas previously showing weakness.

Year End Withdrawal/Retention

A student who receives at least two final grades of “F” in core subjects by the end of the year may be asked to withdraw from the School or repeat the grade. The student’s social behavior and general attitude will play a major part in a decision on the withdrawal/retention of a student.

The information cited above is from our Student Parent Handbook(see below) which is also found on our interface page.

At this point, we’d like to acknowledge all the care and effort that the entire Brent community has been putting in to ensure that well-being, quality learning experiences, and expectations are achieved during this transition time.

We hope you all have a restful, safe, and enjoyable Christmas and New Year break! See you on January 9, 2023, Monday, Day 1.


Dr. Celeste R. Engler

School Principal
