Mr. Brett Petrillo
It is my pleasure to welcome you to Brent International School Baguio for the 2020-2021 school year!
This year we welcome back many of our returning students and faculty, and we also greet with open arms some new faces to the Brent family. The beginning of a school year is a special time in a student’s life. It represents new beginnings, new challenges, and new goals. It could be a fresh start for some, or for others a chance to continue along a chosen path toward greatness. Either way, we here at Brent live to support each other’s academic learning and personal growth, together!
For me this new school year is one of excitement and change as I too am new to the Baguio community. I’ve spent the last five years at Brent Schools, and have been the Headmaster at our Brent Subic Campus for the last two. I am extremely happy to have the opportunity to also become part of the Brent Baguio family. Along with myself, we have some other faculty members who are joining our school community this year, and they possess a wealth of knowledge and experience in their field. I am confident that their addition will strengthen our school community as a whole. Please give them a warm welcome by introducing yourself early on, and getting to know them throughout the beginning part of the year. Our new faculty will be joining a strong group of educators already in place. Our faculty will continue to demonstrate their strength in dynamic teaching strategies, current assessment best practices, and the use of technology to improve student learning.
As a Brent student you are part of a long history of elevated standards and achievement. As a result, high expectations are placed upon you. We expect you to act in a way that represents your best self. This includes taking responsibility for your own actions and choices, and treating all members of the Brent community with respect and compassion. At Brent we value hard work. This means putting forth your best effort in all that you do; allowing you the opportunity to achieve your full potential. This philosophy is not limited to academics but also extends well beyond the classroom and into every aspect of your school life. We believe that academics are only one part of your educational experience, which is why we strongly encourage you to get involved in all that Brent has to offer. Explore the worlds of sport, drama, music, art, student government, and one or more of our many extra-curricular clubs and activities. The future belongs to those with strong moral character, well-rounded experiences, and the drive to accept any challenge they may face. Our goal is to help you get there!
There is much that goes into a Brent education, and by keeping the lines of communication open we can better support all of our students. We encourage regular communication between students, parents, teachers, and the administrative team. Please do not hesitate to contact us should you have any questions.
Let’s all have a wonderful school year!
