Academics

The Brent Baguio and Brent Manila campuses have four divisions for academics: the Early Learning Program (kindergarten-grade 2), Lower School (grades 3-5), Middle School (grades 6-8), and Upper School (grades 9-12).

In the Upper School, the curriculum is college preparatory. In this light, many Brent graduates have gained acceptances to colleges and universities; mainly in the USAmarker, the Philippinesmarker, Canadamarker, and Australia. Other universities would include those in Western Europe, such as Spain, France, Italy, and Switzerland.

The International Baccalaureate Program

Brent Baguio and Brent Manila are among the few schools in the Philippinesmarker to offer the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme for students in the 11th and 12th grades. Brent follows an inclusive rather than exclusive policy for the International Baccalaureate Program, allowing any students willing to undertake the heavy course loads to do so. Even with this inclusive philosophy, the average pass rate for Brent diploma candidates for the classes of 2001 to 2007 was 87.3%, well above the world mean of 81.4% for all diploma candidates during the same period. In fact, the last five years the average pass rate was 91.2%. Further, the mean score for Brent IB Diploma awardees over those seven years was 32.7 points, likewise significantly above the 30.1 world mean for the same years.

School Crest

The meaning of the Brent School Crest:
  • The Lion stands for bravery and courage;
  • The laurel leaves stand for knowledge and learning;
  • The 6 stars stand for loyalty, integrity, courtesy, sincerity, honesty and camaraderie.


The Brent School crest was revised for the Manila Campus, but the elements remain constant. The Manila school and the newer campuses use the redrawn crest while Brent Baguio retains the original crest.
