As far as I am concerned it is not fair that this school is rated. This school has its picks on who attends. Quite naturally when my children attend events such as the Math or Science Olympics, they want to know how Britt David always comes out on top. It is not fair to the other schools and small children who don't understanding what is going on and that Britt David hand picks. Further, when I tried to get my very intelligent children in at Britt David to challenge them, their applications kept getting misplaced and on a couple of occassions, we never even received replacement applications. It is okay, my 5th grader graduated with honors this year from Dimon and he and my daughter have very high CRCT test scores, with my daughter being in the gifted program at St. Elmo. Dimon is rated low, but they have some excellent teachers over there as well. I am convinced that the deal at Britt David is that you have to fit in a certain socioeconomic class. And if you don't fit in this mold, then you are not good enough for Britt David.

Britt David is an amazing school. My son is finishing up his kindergarten year at Britt David right now. His teacher has gone above and beyond to make sure that all of her students adjusted to the first year of real school. It is amazing what they are learning. They are learning so much more than other kindergarten students I know at other schools. We could not be happier with this school.

This school stands out as a place where the learner is challenged to grow intellectually. The students at this school work together as a community to support each other as academic peers. I have worked at this school numerous days, and I have always felt that I was teaching at the best school in the state! A+++

I, myself use to go to Britt David.I feel that I have learned more at that school than at any other. Right now I am in the 8th grade and most of the material I am being taught I have already learned. My point is that Britt David puts your child to the next level, So if your child goes to Britt David you won't have to worry about them not catching on to things or knowing things in their later years.

Britt David Magnet has high expectations for behavior and academics. My child was an A student at another local school. She moved to Britt David in the third grade where they determined she couldn't read on grade level. Standardized tests confirmed the assessment to a degree. Did they make my child leave? NO! They worked above and beyond to make sure my child reached grade level! The media specialist, classroom teacher, and others worked with my daughter daily. The faculty and staff works hard with all students, and I am thankful for that.

It should come as no surprise that Britt David has the highest test scores of any elementary school in Columbus, as any student who does not score well in class or on CRCTs is kicked out of Britt David. And the process that students are put through to make sure the schools testing scores stay high are not fair to the children and do not serve to educate them as they should. I should not have to explain to my child why some of their classmates don't stay the whole school year or deal with my child's stress as teachers tell them they'll leave too if they don't do well. Far from a beacon of excellence, Britt David has shown our family what is wrong with our school system (and maybe websites like this one) where a school that can do so poorly in teaching children still gets applauded for having good test scores. I don't care about test scores, I want to know that my children will learn and grow as intelligent and curious individuals.

Britt David Magnet Academy is a great choice for anyone who wants their child to excel and to be challenged. They encourage your child to do their best. Most of the parents are involved in some way, so much so, that you have to get to the PTA meeting about 45 minutes early if your child is performing, and you want a front seat! They have an amazing library and a media specialist that constantly orders new books for the kids all the time!

Britt David is a demanding yet very rewarding school. I love the fact that not only is the curriculum excellent and the teachers fabulous but the cultural diversity allows the children to learn about other cultures and are encouraged in proper conduct.

I have been in many schools in this district and not one can hold a candle to Britt David. The staff is excellent, the children are extremely well behaved and the academics are top notch. In my opinion, any parent would be pleased with the education their child receives at this institution.

Britt David is a very good school but sad to say that all they are concerned with is remaining the school of excellence. They do not have time to cater to you child s individual needs. Their behavioral expectations are very high. But on a better note they are wonderful academically. My Kindergartener reads on a 3rd grade level. You could not ask for a better academic program. I do think they need to individualize a little more because my child really needs to be challenged, in order to reach her full potential. Parent involvenment is great.

My children entered BD after being homeschooled. The children who attend BD are well behaved, and discipline is not a problem there. We had been on the waiting list for several years, but I withdrew them after the first six weeks. It's a great school if your children are middle- to upper-class average students, but don't expect them to be challenged. If you are looking for a cute, fun, place for your kids to go where the students have been hand-picked to succeed so that the school can continue to be chosen as a School Of Excellence, then BD-Columbus's pride and joy-is the school for you. If you are not satisfied with a school riding on your child's coattails (90% of the children would be 'A/B students' anywhere because of their parents' obvious vested interest in them), then your best elementary option in Columbus is homeschooling.

I have been extremely pleased with Britt David. My kindergartener has excelled in Mrs. Shelton's class. I am so impressed with the amount of parent participation, the curriculum, and the fun things the school does for the children. Britt David truly goes the extra mile for us all!

Britt David is an asset to Columbus. The Faculty has worked very hard to keep the school on top. My child, currently in Kindergarten has grown so much intellectully. I am very pleased. Many parents do not wish to move just because of this school. Mrs. Jones and Mrs. Dent are an assest to Britt David. Thanks for all your hard work. Hetal Joshi

My daughter has gained a tremendous love for reading, writing, and overall learning from Britt David, Mrs. Cheal's kindergarten class, a valuable asset to obtain at such an early age!
