All schools on GreatSchools begin with BASIC completeness, which includes important information like contact details and test scores. It’s up to the school community to take the next steps. As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families by writing a review or answering a few questions about what the school offers. As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

The completeness meter moves to INTERMEDIATE, then ADVANCED, and finally HONOR ROLL as you complete the following: 10 or more reviews, at least 1 photo, and 9 program questions parents find helpful.

Totally disagree with the last post! The administration that was put in place 3 years ago is fantastic. The teachers are excited and very positive. You can feel the excitement and energy at school events. I participate in the Dad's of Great Students Program (Watch D.O.G.S) where Dad's volunteer for either a half or full day at the school rotating between classrooms to.provide assistance with lessons, so I see and feel the energy first hand. Could not be happier with our experience. 2 kids there now - 2nd and 5th grader. Parents are down to earth too. Love the principal.

Be very careful before sending your child to this school. The other 2 reviews were written prior to administration changes. There are other District 89 schools with better leadership in the area that honor open enrollment.

I have to add my positive review of Briar Glen. It is a wonderful learning environment. The administration and teachers are great. The thing that especially surprised me was the feeling of 'family' among everyone involved with Briar Glen. The programming infused with Briar Glen's imperatives of be safe, respect, and responsible creates a great environment. The opportunities for meaningful family involvement are plentiful. We feel so fortunate to have Briar Glen in our community!

Briar Glen School is an excellent elementary school in District 89 for the residence of both glen Ellyn and Wheaton, Illinois. My children have all been through this school for the PAST 2O YEARS (I have 5 kids)and the educational opportunities that have been afforded to my children through this school have been beyond praise. If 'higher education' is what you are looking for, Briar Glen is where you want to be! With cultural events, arts, music, an excellent math and enhanced reading programs, challenge program, many extra curricular events as well as special math and reading programs for those children who need more individualized help in those areas. The teachers are wonderful, for the most part and are comprised of a super mix of seasoned veterans and fresh enthusiastic minds. I love this school....can't say enough about it.
