My daughter has excelled here. Her teachers and the staff are wonderful and I love that the school is smaller than most in the county.

My dauhter is in Fifth grade now, she had been attending Britt since Kindergarten and We can't really ask for more...We are more than happy that our daughter went to a WONDERFUL school....Britt for us is more than a school it is an Istitution where Teachers and school personnel make you feel part of them, the quality of the teachers is Amazing!! I will highly recommend this school for your kids if you are a parent like me where you priority is High Quality Education this is the place for your kids...Britt have a Wonderful Principal Mrs. Jones and her team will make you feel that you are part of the Britt's family the moment you enter there...But do not think they will do all for you.. your participation in your chid education is very important in their school success...We Love Britt and will miss it deeply...

My daughter has attended Britt since 2nd grade and is now in 4th grade. She enjoys going to school there and brings a lot of knowledge home. She preaches recycling and healthy eating habits. I have a 5 year old who will be attending Britt in the fall. The teachers and other staff there have always been helpful.

My daughter is just finished 1st grade...unfortunately we are moving to a different part of Snellville...and Britt is not in our new zone. I want to give praise to the administration for being so kind and bendable with our situation. I couldn't have asked for better support. Also, I was blessed with teachers that not only care about her education, but her behavior as well. I am so pleased with Britt, I'm sad she must move on to 2nd grade without attending Britt. Awesome job to everyone on staff. And to Ms. Todd-Lee...You will be missed!

We are new to the area Britt Elem. We moved down here 3 years ago and she my daughter fit right in. I was impressed with the envolvement of the teachers and the students and how they inform you about how well your or bad your child is doing. My duaghter's teachers inform me at an early time and we were able to get the help my duaghter needed to suceed to the next grade! I love Britt as much as my daughter.

It is a good school that is slowly becoming not so good. The people that are moving into area are not involved and the school is showing the effects with the parent's apathy. The teacher are good and the test scores are good but they will be falling.

The quality of education is poor at best. I was told my child was taught too much in Pre-K and is now bored in class. Adminstration is terrible, they do not want to assist you with any problems or concerns. Parent involvement is very low. I would highly recommend seeking another school if you care about the quality of education your child receives. That is what I am doing.

We were less than happy with our child's experience at Britt. The student/teacher ratio is very high and the curriculum was not challenging to our child. The accelerated programs weren't, and the school has more fundraisers than any school my children have ever attended before. I honestly can't recommend Britt, it's mediocre at best.

This school does not offer enough positive reinforcement for children, especially if they are having some difficulties. They are very negative. Also, children must have sufficient outside time. Which they do not get at this school. You cannot expect children to sit in a class all day and not have release time. This might be one of the problems with so many children at this school who have ADD. They don't let them out enough. I also have a problem with the fact that these kids cannot speak at lunch. I do not ever remember not being able to talk with my friends at lunch time when I was a kid. There take is that the kids won't eat there lunch. I think this is rediculous. I think this school needs to reconsider some of their policies. They have pretty low state scores also.

I feel the quality of my youngest childs education is much less than when my daughter attended 6 years ago. The classes are much too large (my son has one teacher and there are 28 4th graders in his class). This ratio is terrible and it shows, it is not fair to the teachers or the students of this school. We have lived in this area for 18 years and stayed because we believed the quality of education would remain as high as it was when my daugeter began school in 1994. We are moving - and the only reason is the decreasing quality of education offered in this school

The teachers and staff seem to really care about the children. This is full of diversity as well.
