This school has a few good teachers. I highly recommend parents to be aware of what does and doesn't go on in the classrooms. I think the Principal needs to spend a lot more time observing his staff in action. Low expectations and behavior problems are everywhere at this school.
This is a great school. The APIs are mid 800s. The teachers are enthusiastic and terrific. Theleadership is very good. I think this school should be listed as an 8.My son has done nothing but thrive at this school.
Go Bobcats! My kids attended Britton from Fall 2009 to Spring 2013. They thrived here - sports, advanced academic classes, music program, clubs. Most of the teachers are very good, but Principal Webb is the best! He sets the tone for school spirit, cheering on honor students, sporting events, and activities throughout the year. There are great programs here for everyone from Special Ed, to ESL, to AP. Also, my kids always felt safe going here - the teachers & staff are very attentive & responsive. We'd rate Britton a 9 - Mr. Webb, the teachers & staff should feel proud of the school environment they've cultivated these last few years.
It's a shame that great schools maintains such old reviews which don't reflect the current status of a school. Britton has been an outstanding experience for my three sons. For anyone who looks at data, Britton outperforms most area schools in math. Many students are challenged one or two years ahead of grade level. Britton still manages to offer a full menu of electives and activities. Their sports program is outstanding. The parents work together to make the school a community. I really can't say anything but good about Britton and anyone who thinks otherwise should get the facts. Thank you to the Britton staff for making middle school a great experience for my kids.
britton middle school has great learning environment. the teachers are very helpful and resourceful, and throughout the year they succeed. students who attend this school will most definelty achieve what they set out to. it's great that this school has so many activities and clubs to help new students socialize and meet new people. i would most definelty recomend this school to others
Mr. Bremis is a horrible teacher who sits on his students! Otherwise great school! Awesome school!
This school is great best teacher is mr.bremiss and kids are friendlyy i recommand for u to come here
I moved 2 of my kids here from Charter School. It has been so much better for them. They made friends and it helped prepare them for their high school years. The staff were very attentive and the teachers were very concerned about their students and liked teaching. I think this school was night and day the best for my kids.
The staff and parent volunteers at Britton work hard to create the best learning experience for the students. As a teacher at Britton, I find the staff, students, and parents to be friendly and enthusiastic. I love working at this school.
This is the worst school I have ever been too and I have been to many different schools. It's not like I hate school. I'm in all advanced classes including geometry and I'm a 4.0 student. The teachers could care less about their students and the principal and vice principal are the worst out of the whole staff. I'm glad to be graduating this year and leaving this horrible school behind me.
I love Britton! its great and everyone who works there is super caring and nice!
My daughter is an 8th grader at Britton. I would have never guessed how hard the 7th grade would be! My daughter came from a very small school. She had to learn to adjust socially. The diversity of population of the school taught her to be 'street smart'. I can't thank enough the teachers and the staff for their support. This year I wanted to get more involved at school. I am very impressed by the quality and the commitment of these teachers. I definetely think the school would do even better with a higher parent involvement. The Home and School Club is really dedicated to make a difference by uniting the latino and the caucasian community. This is a great Middle School ! You will only get out of it what you put into it! So get involved, and make this short two years count!
My son is an 8th grader at Britton. The teachers and staff are supportive, very appreciative of parent help and try to provide a safe, caring and engaging environment for learning. Although the diverse student population sometimes brings negative elements into school experience, I think this reflects issues within family environments more then lack of response from school. Parents who get involved and show how much they value education typically have kids who mirror these same qualities! So get involved and help your kids in classes with a weak teacher where they need help and enjoy the great things they are leaning in their other classes!
My daughter is in 8th grade this year. Last year we were very nervous about sending her to Britton. She did have a hard first month. There was 2 fights that really scared her. There has been nothing since. She loves Britton. She is a 4.0 student and has felt challenged since she has been there. I do feel that there could be more parents involved, but it has improved since last year. This year they are really trying to bring the english and spanish speaking communities together. The teachers have been great. They were easy to reach and keep you informed . The principal and vice principal have been easy to reach and quick to resolve any issue we had. The counselor has been wonderful and she is really there for the students. We really belive that Britton has done a great job in preparing our daughter for high school.
I am a student here and I was in the hospital and every one cared. When i got back a month later I got 7 cards and lots of hugs. even a party. Sure there is alot of gang students (im not one) but it has alot of wonderfull and caring teachers.
Both my sons have attended Britton Middle school and each has gotten out of it what they put in. The education is avaiable, but resources are limited. Science classes have little to offer. The teachers range from being excellent to poor. The new principal is wonderful and is making great strides in improving the school.
The new principal has added so much to Britton this year! Many Kudos to him! He is doing a superior job, and I feel safe knowing he is there. Most of our daughters teachers have been excellent.
My son spent almost the first quarter at this school before I pulled him out. Teachers said 'why be here when no one cares?' My son left before the end of first quarter, with plenty of notice. He received a report card for the 2nd quarter. They didn't even notice he was gone. He received an A ('great work'), two B's, two C's a D ('missing homework') and an F ('poor attendance').
My youngest of 4 children is now attending. I am very dissapointed in the overall performance of my son's teachers and his school counselor. There is no follow up on his progress.
