My daughter went to this school from the 1st thru the 6th grade. She was very happy here. There were lots of things to be involved in, band, chorus and great after school activities. She has excelled in school thru the 12th grade. I believe it is a direct result of her experince in Las Brisas
If your kids have an exceptional teacher and are average or slightly-above average, you'll love this school. Gave up trying to get principal to help--sold our house in order to get our kids out of that school. Moved to another district and couldn't be happier.
Great School. Children had to switch schools in the middle of the year and they made it an easy transition. Teachers have been supportive and informative. Parent involvement is encouraged and my children are very happy here.
Two Children @ Las Brisas. The communication that is available between the teachers and the parents is exceptional. They have an open door policy that encourages the parents involvement and active participation. The teachers email us, call us and write to us often. I disagree with the other comments that rated discipline and safety low. Neither of my two children have ever been threatened, observed violence at school or felt unsafe. My children have never brought home one curse word. That is rare in these times. This school is amazingly well adjusted. The children are more apt to perform well under a safe environment. Each teacher is different and that is an excellent thing for my children because they are exposed to many teaching styles. The Teachers still follow the schools agenda. The opportunity lies in increasing Parent involvement. It's not just their job.
From having a wonderful and encouraging Kindergarten teacher the first year. I have been very disappointed in the first grade. I feel academics are not a focus and kids needs more encouragement to strive for more. From one extreme to another, there is no consistency between teachers. Office staff have never been helppful or cordial to me or others. The principal is so in her own world. She has no idea how or what these students are learning. If children need more challenge in the learning, they should be developing it earlier and create more advance placement for children who have the ability.
My children have been going to las brisas elementary school for three years now. I have been disappointed at the lack of consistency from one teacher to the other. I will be removing them at the end of this year to put them somewhere else.
The teachers are superb, they work hard to bring the absolute best out of each and every child. The teachers and staff seem to hold this school together in the phenominal way. Administrative leadership is not what makes this school it is the teachers.
I think Las Brisas is a wonderful school. The teachers are terrific and definitly there for our children.
My kids are new to the school this year and have adjusted well. The teaching staff is exceptional and have welcomed my children with open arms. I have been impressed with the parent participation level and activities offered. I am pleased with both the academic and non-academic programming.
Very friendly school, both teachers and parents. Not enough is expected from students academically. Way too much 'play' time not enough learning.
If you can get past the uptight office staff, the teaching staff is top notch! Students are treated with respect. Though a geographical issue, I found a lack of staff/student diversity.
Good school for the average student. Some of the teachers are exceptional...some teachers just don't seem to want to be bothered. Diversity is good. Bright children are not challenged as they should be. Too many children per classroom to give the children on either end the time they need. Really nice principal that does the most with what she has to work with. She works hard to create a feeling of community.
