Open Quote Sorry, but the school needs to focus a lot more on their academics, and studies. Also, they should equally balance the enrollment of different races, to get e better understanding of cultural diversity. Do i have a say on this? Of course, because I went to briargrove for elementary, and I learned nearly squatch. When middle school comes around, some of those lil' briargrovers will be wishing they didn't exist.
My main point is: better academics, and no indulging of children(yes there were a lot of annoying spoiled people when I went there. So if I could nice a school that briargrove should follow, it would be T H Rogers. Also, I demand that briargrove have a language elective, or a language class, because I think that it will help kids the most as they enter high school, as far as high-school credit. now all of you parents, if your kid goes to briargrove, take care, and make sure they dont get their iphone, or their ps3 or all of their expensive little goodies, and Drill them on some good old math.

Open Quote I love this school. This is the second year my kids have gone here and they always rave about how much fun they have in school. They're always doing some sort of projects that surprises me like growing meal worms and building things from recycled products. They are in the first and third grade so I don't expect these things from them being so young. They have fun and learn so much! When my daughter was in her old school I would ask her what she's learned and it's always... mmmm I don't know. Now they can't wait to tell me about the things they work on in school!

The teachers are fantastic. You can tell because when I talk to them they'll have a twinkle in their eye and reference the kids as their babies.

Though it's a public school I sincerely feel like it's a private school setting. They try to raise a lot of money and recycle to make money for the school so the kids can do these special projects which I'm fine with donating! There are a lot of parents who are involved as well so it shows good commitment to the kids' education. When you walk through the doors you'll see parents volunteering all of the place which is great!!!

Take a tour of the school and you'll see how happy the children are here. I wish I had the time to volunteer but I'm a single mother; at least I know my kids are cared for here. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
