Academic Structure at Brentano Elementary: Empowering Student Leaders in Learning

At Brentano Elementary, our educational philosophy revolves around empowering students as leaders in their own learning journey. We believe that students thrive when they are actively engaged in discovery and problem-solving, which is why our teaching approach centers on these principles.

PreK: Brentano offers play-based prekindergarten programs available in both full-day and half-day settings. Our PreK curriculum focuses on fostering early learning skills through interactive play and exploration. Students have the opportunity to learn in a general education setting or a blended setting, ensuring inclusivity and support for all learners.

Kindergarten through 2nd Grade: In Kindergarten through 2nd grade, students primarily work in self-contained classrooms. Each teacher provides instruction in literacy, writing, math, and an integrated inquiry block encompassing science and social studies. Additionally, students engage with enrichment teachers in visual art, drama, music, Spanish, and physical education to foster a well-rounded educational experience.

3rd through 5th Grade: Students in 3rd through 5th grade transition to departmentalized settings. They start their day with a 30-minute homeroom or advisory session, followed by three 90-minute periods focusing on literacy, math, and inquiry (science and social studies). Enrichment opportunities in visual art, drama, music, Spanish, and physical education further enhance their educational journey.

6th through 8th Grade: Brentano's middle school program is designed to provide a comprehensive educational experience. Students begin their day with a 30-minute advisory session, followed by four blocks covering literacy, math, science, and social studies. Elective enrichment courses in visual art, drama, music, Spanish, and physical education allow students to pursue their interests and talents.

Enrichment and Continuous Learning: At Brentano, we prioritize educating the whole child. In addition to core academic subjects, students have access to enrichment classes such as PE, Music, Drama, Visual Arts, and Spanish. We are proud of our dedicated teaching staff, who continuously engage in professional development opportunities through partnerships with esteemed institutions like UIC, the University of Chicago, the Erikson Institute, and more.

Brentano Elementary is committed to providing a supportive and enriching environment where every student can thrive academically, socially, and emotionally. Our holistic approach to education ensures that students graduate as confident, well-rounded individuals prepared for success in their future endeavors.
