A great resource for residents and families planning to move to the area is this Brentwood school district's website. It has a useful "locate my school" feature that lets you type in your street address and tells you what school your child is likely to go to. Of course, the answers are never guaranteed. In an active and steadily growing community like Brentwood, school boundaries change and each school likewise has a limit on the number of enrollments. Your best bet is to contact and stay connected with the district office and the individual school to request more information and to make sure you know all the requirements and deadlines way in advance.

The district currently has over 7,000 students for the 2008-2009 schoolyear, after growing 3.3% over last year. The rate of growth has slowed compared to previous years' 7%-10% due to the real estate slowdown.
