Brick Elementary is a wonderful school. My daughter enjoys school and has made great progress. The office staff is wonderful and always willing to help when needed. The teachers have always been more then willing to answer any questions I may have or offer additional support if needed. They are wonderful about keeping families up to date on current events happening at the school and encourage parent involvement. This is a wonderful school. We love it here.
Love this school!! Brick has a lot of great teachers and wonderful staff! Wouldn't want my kids anywhere else!!
Brick Elementary School teachers are some of the best people I could have chosen to teach my children! They have given individual attention to students requiring special accommodations as well as independent learners. I have had 4 children attend the school; 2 with IEPs,one average learner and one an accelerated reader. I have been treated with respect although my children have had behavior problems. I have met with many teachers over the years and several principals. We worked as a team, recognizing that home-school communication is necessary for creating consistency in children's lives. The staff has my highest praise for a job well done!
I have a child in 3rd grade, and his teacher has helped him so much in the transition to the new school. His old school pushed him to the side when the were told he had ADD. Not here. His teacher made a folder for positive reinforcement purposes. Which really helped him focus. She also helped me understand ADD and what I could do at home to keep him focused. This is a wonderful school so far. The office staff is amazing as well as all the school staff that I have had a chance to meet. In the fall they offered after school track, and many other family night activites in the gym.
I have been very happy with the education my son is receiving at Brick. I have found the teachers to be very communicative, especially when I've had specific concerns. My son has participated in after school programs and has enjoyed the Valentines dance. I have not found safety to be an issue. Is my son particularly challenged by the curriculum? Maybe not, but I also don't know how much control Brick has over that, and you have to teach to the group.
Wejust moved to another school, which we are very pleased with. I nev er realized what a bad school Brick was until I experienced another school. My child's teacher was rarely there. There were no extra curricular activities, no special in school programs to involve parents. The communication between teachers and parents was very poor. The safety very poor. I would not chose this school if I had to.
I have 2 children currently attending Brick. Both have excelled academically. The teachers have been very attentive and have offered greater challenges as desired. They have also been participants in the free school choir. Free after school Spanish lessons. Science fairs, School plays and Art shows. My son was able to participate in a free Future Engineers of America Program in the fourth Grade. I have found the environment at Brick elementary to be extremely beneficial and having had experience with other neighboring school districts. The free elective and enriching activities are a huge benefit over the same programs at other school districts that can cost hundreds of dollars. I believe Brick to be comparable if not above the average. I would encourage any parent before considering the ratings on these websites to visit the schools. I feel the rating that has been giving to Brick on this site is a terrible view of what a wonderful school Brick elementary actually is.
I've had two of my children attend Brick, both have had great experiences. Mr. Holderith, fifth grade teacher, spent extra time making more challenging math assignments for my son. His 4th grade teacher, Ms. Kurmi had a great behavior reward system and was always full of enthusiasm getting the kids more engaged in learning. The music teacher, Ms. Robbins puts on a 4th and 5th grade choir performance, plus a fantastic talent show. Ms. Stephens, a first grade teacher, loves the kids and always welcomes parent volunteers. We are frequent attenders of 'Literacy Nights' where families can go to the media center after school, take AR tests, participate in fun activities and listen to books being read. My oldest son participated in Academic Games. There is also an after school Spanish program, a Valentines Dance, plus an end of year carnival after school homework help, too many great thing to list!
We had a 2nd and 4th grader at Brick. We were most pleased with the teachers, who seemed to care about the kids quite a bit. The building is secure during the day. Long bus rides bringing in kids from outer subdivisions. Overall, we thought it was an adequate educational experience but not outstanding.
I have 2 sons at Brick (2nd & 5th) and I really love the school. There are several FANTASTIC teachers and Mr. Hood is a wonderful Principle. There are quite a few after-school programs available especially for students in the upper grades, and the staff has always been very welcoming and accomodating.
