The school has an awful principal. She has an elitist attitude and that attitude is pretty much what she promotes in her "administration". I feel sorry for the good teachers that work there.
the best shcool in all of county go bears school has a horrible principal other than that 5 star school GOOOOOOOO BEARS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This school is definitely not a place you should send your child. If you question the staff you will not get an answer (or a straight one at least). The principal's 'expect the best' motto is bull. Discipline is a very huge problem at this school. Some students seem to be more important than others as some students get a pat on the wrist as a consequence and some get full on harsh punishments for THE SAME THING. My friends child got in school suspension for wearing a romper last year. Please listen to these recent reviews and DONT send your child to Briggs Chaney.
We were so horrified by the behavior of students AND teachers at this school that we pulled our child out. Students are bullied physically and emotionally without repercussion. There is no leadership from the administration and most teachers don't care - won't answer student questions, ignore parent emails, don't update edline, refuse to meet with parents.
This school is good and has amazing and very talented students but for some reason there are some problems and there are few but they are big problems. I'm a sixth grader who has been through the first quarter only. I have seen and observed many different scenes and acts happening in the classrooms and hallways and cafeteria. For one thing the kids will not be quite. Fact: Most of the time while we are in the lunch room the boys are always so loud and by the time I get out of the lunch room I only have a minute to get my stuff out of my locker. One time I was late and me and my friend made a letter about it. I fixed that problem but there are so many more. For one you cannot express yourself at all unless after school. When you have a question the teachers will answer but they might cut you off. The punishments are bad here. I've never had a lunch detention or have been suspended or have gotten in trouble. I am scared I might. Last big problem, the kids have so many fights and arguments. I avoid them but I can't even make it to my last period without getting bumped into. Kids will spread rumors like mad. Everything else is great.
This school is the worse school ever they suspend people who were not involved with a fight the teachers don't care about the students and the new princible only cares about her daughter if you go to Briggs Chaney and you really wanna make it threw have real friends that you can trust other then that you are most likely to be bullied the school Is very divided but gender for the most part not much freedom no dances and no fun if you really want to have fun go get suspended or get hated by teachers ( witch is very easy) the princible says expect the best everyday she said that everyone in my class use to say no except the opposite witch in my opinion is very true.
i am a 7th grader here and i love this school, but the school has a lot of fights which are annoying
This school is okay. We have fights every week we haven't even had our first school dance. The teachers really wont try to help you get an A. This principal has a daughter that comes to the school and lets her do what ever she wants she would be late for class and the teacher wouldn't care. The ABC Party use to be 2 HOURS and now its 1 because her daughter told her what we do in the circle. The school is not fun for the students we want more dances , more freedom but we can't get that for some reason.
I attended this school a couple years back, as did my siblings, and the school is ok. Now, there are several teachers and staff in this school that care deeply and are extremely passionate about their teaching, and helping out students, but unless parents are very actively involved with their children's learning (as with all education levels), it will be a difficult struggle for your children to be successful. The school is very diverse, which is really good, but there is plenty of bullying that goes on as well, and academically it is a school that will challenge you, but YOU need to follow-up and kinda teach your kids; however, overall this school is decent.
Briggs Chaney Middle School is an excellent school. The orquestra is a very talented group that has gained superior ratings at the district and even the state festival. Briggs chaney is a very diverse school. There may be able a few problems but the students make up for it in thier academics. The staff do everything in thier power to make Briggs Chaney a great learning enviornment. Briggs Chaney Middle School is a diverse, warm, and excellent school.
Im a 8th grader at briggs chaney middle school and trust me there is alot of fights and bullying here. Its a good ting i only have to be here for 4 more months
I'm a sixth grader at Briggs Chaney Middle School. My first year...i was nervous at first but the student and staff made us new comers feel very welcome at the school. There can be some changes in the school like the fighting. There's alway someone in someones face arguing over something really idiotic. But what i can say is there's always at least 2 teachers out there to get every thing back in place!!!! The teachers there are very nice and fun, they challenge you but make learning fun and entertaining. Ms. Johnson our principal is the best principal she is very nice. So far the school works for me..!!!!:) :) :) :) :)
I am a seventh grader at Briggs Chaney Middle School. I do not like this school. I live right next to it. Many problems with bullying and cyber bullying take place. I only have one teacher whom i actually think cares about our education. Almost all of the other make it seem like they take it as a place to be and some stuff to say. Predudism issues is a huge deal in this school, along with disiple issues. You can't walk the halls with out hearing the words 'Dawg, dat is racists' I find it morally sad that i and many others have to attend this school.
i a student there evrthing is well the school is very educational and organized if you move in the area its a great choice for a sholll to put your children in!
Teachers work so hard at BC to try to help each child achieve, but have little or no support from the administration. The rules are not enforced consistently and some kids seem to be 'special' and not have to follow any rules or receive any consequences. There are many good teachers who seem to recognize that each kid deserves the best each teacher has to offer. it is unfortunate that the teachers feel so unsupported and disrespected that we are beginning to see them leave.
Discipline is so bad that our family pulled our children out. They have tremendous 'food fights' in the cafeteria and the principal seems unable to cope.
Discipline is a problem at the school. The teachers try to control it but seem to have lack of support from administration.
This school is experiencing tremendous difficulty with discipline. The staff is overwhelmed and many students are disruptive and disrespectful. It is a very difficult learning environment. Transfers are nearly impossible because so many families want out. It is sad to watch a once acclaimed school fail. Parents need to stay involved and insist on their childs safety and educatonal rights.
this school is overcrowded and discipline is a real problem. very little emphasis placed on respect. there is alot of bullying and aggressive behavior. Teachers are very well qualified but spend alot of time on discipline problems. There is also unaddressed racial tensions.
Briggs Chaney is a wonderful school and im pround to say my child along with my nieces attend such a great school.
