I was in the public school system for 30+ years. I have now taught at Briarwood for three years. The major differences are: the vast majority of the student body is capable of learning at a normal grade level with many able to tackle the advanced courses. Many public schools don't have near the same percent at this level. Discipline at Briarwood is well-behaved with classes that allow the teacher to teach. From the headmaster to the principal to the teachers, all work to uplift students to their highest level of ability. Extracurricular activities are availble for almost any student.
My son attended Briarwood Academy when we moved from another area. It was the right move for him. The students, faculty, and administration welcomed him and made him so comfortable, even loved. What a positive experience for my son!
