This is our 2nd year at BCS. It is highly recommended in our city. The teachers are selected based not only on their educational experience but also their spiritual life. Great structure and balance between education and faith. I love BCS!

This has been our first year at Briarwood, and we could not be happier! Our son had an easy transition, which was not anticipated, and he has never looked back! He is challenged academically, has a wonderful, loving teacher, and the leadership is just outstanding from the superintendent to the principals to the teachers and support personnel. We know without a doubt we made the correct decision and every penny is well spent no matter the adjustments that had to be made.

We love Briarwood! Our daughter has been there from K-5 to 3rd grade and our son is now in K-4. The teachers are easily accessible and more than willing to communicate any issues with us. The leadership is strong yet extremely caring for the children. All around, Briarwood is great!

Briarwood has been a great school exceeding all our academic and environmental expectations. We live in a fabulous public school zone but after using Briarwood for kindergarten we were hooked. The teachers are very caring and hold the students to a high standard of excellence. The reading program is a model that many other schools come and observe and try to immulate (including local public schools). We have been very impressed with the school and have recommended it to many of our friends.

Briarwood Christian School has been a wonderful experience for us. Knowing that no School is perfect, we do believe Briarwood strives to be the best in all areas. Briarwood has teachers that care about their students mentally and physically. The programs are well rounded.

Briarwood is an excellent school academically, with small classes and caring teachers. Students receive great academics within a Christian setting. Diversity is lacking with both the student/teacher population as well as politically.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

Oops! We currently do not have any student information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.
