From my personal experience I feel like my grandson is not getting the resources he needs. I also feel like he is being bullied. Hopefully we will be able to get him in a different setting by using state or local scholarship funds. He does have have an IEP plan, but I don't think he's needs are being addressed.

The majority of the teachers are great especially if you have a child that is well rounded. However if a child is not a high achiever than it turns into a painful experience.

Great school all around, front the principal , the teachers, the custodians, and the lunch staff. The PTO is extremely active and volunteers can be seen helping out in every way possible. Braelinn is a public school with a private and cozy feel. I have 2 there now, with a 3rd entering next year. By far one of the best schools in the Metro Atlanta area, and probably the entire state.

A 10 out of 10 performance by the entire staff and faculty of Braelinn. From the dedicated Principal opening car doors in the morning to the motivated PE teacher, this school was a great experience for our children. As Army brats they move every two years and the care this school took on our kids was the example. Atlanta schools are in the news in a negative way now but this place is phenomenal. Good Job to all Braelinn Stars!

I have 3 children in Braelinn and am very pleased with the school. The principal is excellent and the teachers are as well. I have one child in the gifted program and one on an IEP and can say both are getting everything they need on both spectrums of the education experience at Braelinn.

What an amazing school! Braelinn has a fantastic principal and outstanding teachers who truly care about every student. My son has been there four years and we have been thrilled with his teachers and education every year. The gifted program and PE programs are also outstanding!

Braelinn is an outstanding school. Our first child completed 1st grade well ahead of where she started, and ahead of grade level. 2nd grade is underway and she is off to a fine start. Looking forward to the younger two kids going to Bralinn, too. The principal is terrific, and the instructors uniformly seem to understand why they are there, to provide superior education to the kids. The education is first, everything else is secondary.

Great school as long as your kids are high achievers and have no issues at all. If by chance you have an average kid or God forbid one with learning issue, heaven help you. Teachers and Administration expect too much too early and the support is minimal.

This school is a shining example of public education. The faculty and staff are top notch. Couldn't be happier!

Excellent school - all three of our kids have attended Braelinn. They all have different learning styles and academic strengths, and each did very well at Braelinn. Unlike schools in other ATL suburbs, there are no portable classrooms! Another advantage is the after shool program. We've used it for years and have been very happy. If you are looking to move to an area with reasonably priced homes and superb public schools, this is the place to be.

Our son has been going to Braelinn for 3 years and absolutely loves it! He hasn't missed a single day of school this year, and only one in the last two, due to his upbeat attitude instilled by the teachers and staff. We couldn't be happier with Braelinn and also with Rising Starr Middle School where his older brother goes.

We just relocated from Portland Oregon and just love this school. The principal is very experienced and friendly. The staff is interested in the sucess of each individual student. I love the courtyard and the opportunity it provides to teach the students about gardening and sharing special lunches with family. I also enjoy all the special need students and what a great energy they bring to Braelinn. The volunteer hours logged each month is astounding!

My daughter went to summer school at braelinn last summer and it was great, she love it and her reading did improve alot.. Thank you.

Posted February 12, 2005

Both our daughters have spent 6 years at Braelinn. The parental involvement, staff credentials, PTO and overall education is terrific. Other parents who have experienced private schools claim it is like a private school. Top marks! Way to go Baelinn teachers,staff and parents. My only suggestion might be additional music exposusre in earlier grades and broader musical otpions in later grades.
