Brentwood High School is a comprehensive high school that opened in 1982 to serve the rapidly growing population in the northern part of Williamson County. The school serves approximately 1750 students in grades 9 – 12. The pupil/teacher ratio is approximately 21.7 to 1. Students that attend Scales, Lipscomb and Edmondson Elementary Schools and Brentwood Middle School attend Brentwood High School.
Since 1982, there have been numerous additions and upgrades to the campus: in 1985, classroom space was added as the school’s enrollment quickly exceeded original projections. In 1987, a multipurpose room was added, serving as both an auxiliary gymnasium and auditorium, and also included drama and choral classrooms as part of the addition. Several athletic upgrades followed: a wrestling facility was built in 1998; in 2000 a field house was added to serve as weight room, football locker room, and multipurpose athletic facility; and in 2002-2003 football stadium seating and press box upgrades and soccer facilities were completed. In 2014, work was begun on the 500-seat Brentwood Performing Arts Center, which opened in March of 2015.
