I am appalled by the rude and condescending behavior of staff at this school. Communicating requests with parents can be done in an appropriate, professional manner that may produce the results you are looking for, or you can act antagonistically which will most likely result in not having the support of parents at your school. Reminder: You are a public school paid by tax payers money and you wouldn't be a school without the enrollment of our children.
If your child has any special needs - IEP, 504, or gifted - I would not recommend the Kyrene School District. They have a poor understanding of these services. Many parents i know are just leaving the district instead of battling with them.
Completely Happy! My kids (1st & 4th )and I are so happy with this school, staff and attention to each child. We live in San Tan Valley and I drive them to school each day on my way in to work because I love this school so much. Mrs. Carr is by far an amazing teacher, Mrs. Winkleman is an awesome, very approachable principal with a true open door policy! The front office staff are friendly and genuinly care about the families of their students. So far the teachers that we have had seemed to have challenged my kids to their full potential and offer help where needed. They are great at communicating with me throughout the day when needed and I can alwasy go to them with a concern and have them listen and help resolve. Choosing Brisas was the best decision for our children.
my daughter switched from another Kyrene school and I am totally in love with this place! the principles are amazing and lead with such ease and the teachers actually love their job and love the kids!!! You can see it in the way they are and the way the kids come home everyday so happy. Ms. Koshick is phenomenal!!! I'm excited for my child to start her second year there this upcoming year and for my little oif only other schools would learn from them thne to start kindergarten here. This is truly a wonderful caring school. I can't say enough about the way they run this place!
I have a daughter in her 3rd year at Brisas and a son in preschool. The teachers have all been amazing! The principal is extremely proactive, involved, and honestly cares about giving the kids nothing but the best education. They truly strive for excellence and take all parent questions and concerns to heart. I have seen numerous changes over the last 3 years; all of which were to improve the overall quality of education and safety of the kids. With that being said the best part of Brisas is the school spirit which is nurtured through a teaching of core values of respect, honesty and integrity. Kids are truly taught the golden rule. Do unto others as you would have done to you. I volunteer at least twice a week and am astounded by the level of respect the kids show for each other, their school, and their teachers. This obviously trickles down from a phenomenal involved principle to the teachers and the students! Bravo Brisas!
The teachers at this school are amazing and the admin is very attentive. The school has very safe atmosphere and feels like a community. We are happy both our boys are going there. My younger con was entering early Kindergarten and was much younger than his peers but his teacher Mrs. Patty Foster was the ideal teacher. the whole class was happy, healthy, bright and really well disciplined!
Kyrene de las Brisas cares about the whole child. They ensure there are activities and programs to enhance your child academically, socially and physically. I heard horror stories from other parents about dealing with their kids schools and teachers and have been nothing but impressed by the staff at Kyrene de las Brisas. A key element that brought me to this conclusion was the amount of school spirit each kid feels from Kindergarten up. My son was singing the school anthem the first week he came home. Now in first grade the spirit continues.
