My daughter has been going here every since 3rd grade, an has always made A-B Honor Roll every year. The school has always been kept clean and organized. I love all the teachers and the principal Mrs. Collins, they have made the last couple of years such a great learning experience. This school and its faculty is a prime example on how public school should be for every child.
I went to this school in 5th grade. I loved it, I had lots of friends, and especially enjoyed the activities. Just one problem, I was bullied in 5th grade. Along with my 4 best friends. We told the principal mamy times, and our teachers. The boys (who had tormented us for years), just got warnings! My friends and I were devastated. Besides that problem, Don Brewer is great. The extended day was fun. I wouldn't advise the lunch though, I packed. One last thing, does the Kindness Queen still visit?
Don Brewer is a great school. I love walking in to the school and the staff knows me. My children (3rd & 4th graders) have excelled in this school. The teachers are very friendly and encourage the students to achieve their goals and beyond.
Don Brewer Elementary school is one of the few schools that has an out standing grade for the area of Arlington. It has great Teachers, and Mrs. Collins who is the top Principle is awesome. I have spent a lot of hours working at this school as a volunteer and I have loved every minute of it. Give Don Brewer some thought, I think you too will find that it is the school for your child. Best wishes for all the parents in search of a great school for their children. Cheryel Porter grandmother of Razarro Reece Stark
We are going to miss Don Brewer. The administrators and staff have been so wonderful here. My son learned so much and enjoyed his 3 years there.
My daughter has been at Don Brewer for 2 years 3rd & 4th grade we love all her teachers. They really are the best & make sure that the students undersatnd what they are learning & make it fun when learning..
This is my daughter's 2nd year at Don Brewer and she has a blast here. We can't thank you enough for the work that Mrs.Toland, Mrs.Roden & Mrs.Vann have done with my kid. Thank you for letting all of us believe that school is FUN......LOVEEEE DON BREWER!!!!!!!!
Don Brewer is a 'Great School'! Top notch teachers who really care about children and thier future.My children have had a wonderful experience there and as a parent I could not be more pleased.
This is a terrible school and teachers do not care about struggling students.
Both of my children attended this school. My children and I loved the school. The atmosphere was always friendly and I could always contact the teachers when necessary. The teachers always make sure you are aware of what is going on in the classroom, school activities and with your child.
This is my kids second year at don brewer,and so far have been great school for us. My kids had teacher's who realy cares about their progress.
Parent involvement is very high at this school, quality academics depending upon the teacher you receive, music, art, P.E. offered weekly. PTA is very active at this school.
Rude unruly Children! I have never seen kids that think they can talk to adults this way!
I think Don Brewer Elementary School is a fantastic institution of learning. I have a son and daughter who attend the 5th grade there. I can see the academic progress the children have made from the first day of class to the present. My children went to a private school in Philadelphia before we moved here in July, and the quality of this public school s education is tantamount to the quality of the private school. I commend Dante and Maya's teachers, Ms. Peters and Mrs. Reeger; the best bus driver in the world, Mrs. Turner, Principal Kornblum, parents and the many other administrators and employees who work together to provide a rich and caring environment in which these children can learn, and be enriched with the necessary basic/intermediate skills needed to achieve in their later academic years.

Small class sizes, very clean new school. definately a step up from their sister school. Bathrooms in every classroom.
I would like to commend Don Brewer for the great teacher quality. Mainly my son's teacher Miss L. Godfrey. She is a great inspiration to my son who is repeating the 3rd grade and was very discouraged. Now, he loves school and it shows! Thank you! It's a blessing to be a part of this school. - Corey Williams' mom
I have been very happy with Don Brewer Elementary. The school is very well equiped with all that is necesary to provide my child with a good education. The faculty have always been very polite and helpful. My child has attended two other Duval County schools but this school is the best by far. I hope that other schools can follow in their example.
