| 0 comments| by Sarah Frei Sarah Frei

So much has happened in a span of a few short weeks since our 2019-2020 school year started in September. Most importantly, we welcomed our new and returning students to our warm and friendly community. Whether they are at Brillantmont until graduation or just for one term, we embrace our students in the family environment that Brillantmont has nurtured for over 135 years.

Each student is different, with personal learning styles and individual talents. Our teachers and coordinators work together with the students to set their goals to help them shape their future.

The coordinators have given us their insight on how the first few weeks of the year have been so far. They talk about their interaction with the students and, overall, how the school year has started for the entire community.
