Profile Completeness


Want to improve this school’s profile? You can!

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.

I have a child in fourth grade at this school,and it couldn't get any greater.I love this school, because my daughter 3rd grade teacher Holly Jones was excellent. The principle Mrs.Townsend knows how to set the perfect atomosphere at her school, because everthing is in order.

The school overall is acceptable. I have a problem with the Accelrated Reader Program. At my children's other school it was an incentive program where you were rewarded for how many books you read. My problem with this program is that it is restrictive in terms of the titles of books you can read and the level. My child used to enjoy reading, but now she is forced to read the limited books in a certain level. Most of the time she reads books she doesn't like because she is forced to. All I can say, is that she can't wait for summer to read whatever she wants, just for the pure joy of reading. Whatever happend to reading a book and doing a book report on it? Wasn't that a fun and interactive way to see how much you comprehended? 10 % of your reading grade, how ridiculous!

My child transfered to Brandon Elementary from Vine Street. From day one it was CLEAR, that we were not dealing with the same quality of school. Although it is still in the same district. The office staff is rude and unhelpful. It is next to impossible to get the principal on the phone at any given time. The special education department is in extreme need of an overhaul. Twice I have had to actually go into the district office before a problem was addressed. I advise any parent who is thinking of transfering their child to this school, to aquaint their self with facts on this school. Lisa Scott
