Wonderful school and staff. Very happy with this school, as a parent I'm always skeptical when it comes to the things that have to do with my kids and Briarcliff is a very good school.
It is a pleasure to see my child wake up in morning ready to go to school. Teachers are well prepared and organized for daily lessons. The principal seems to be on top of what goes on in school. Kudos to all the staff.
Great school! Great staff! Great learning environment! Kids love going to school! Good parent- teacher communication. Fairly small classes where teachers interact with students.
Several teachers appear to be disorganized and lacking positive teaching skills. The Principal is the best asset the school has and he is leaving. I wouldn't recommend this school if you are expecting your child to be ahead of the curve. They do good to hit the basics!
Does not keep parents or the community informed of activities. Webpage is never up to date.
Briarcliff teachers are passionate about educating children. Their positive attitudes shine through in our children. Many students return to Briarcliff in later years to visit their 'favorite' teachers.
Briarcliff is a warm, wonderful environment filled with caring, committed staff. I feel like we hit the lottery when we moved into this school's boundaries!
Briarcliff has a principal and teachers that truly care about children. I know my son is in good hands and is being taught well.
As new parents to the school our 2nd grader has enjoyed the transition. He brags about everything from lunch, to extra recesses, to computer, to library and he really is enjoying his teacher, Mrs. Sharp. We, as a family, have been very pleased with the warmth and kindness of the staff. By them providing a loving environment it encourages children to excell in their academics. We are very pleased to be at Briarcliff.
It is a small neighborhood elementary school with lots of diversity.
The teachers,nurses,cafeteria all genuinely care for the health and well being of these students and well as their elementary education. I feel at ease to send him there knowing that he's safe and cared for outside of home.
The entire staff... principal, secretary, teachers, counselors, assistants... have nothing but the welfare of the children and their families in mind! My son has thrived at Briarcliff, and we're blessed to have such a wonderful environment to learn and grow!
My granddaughter loves her teacher and the school has good reports from her parents, too!
This has been a great school for parent involvement. I am very involved in my sons activities, and programs during the school year. Academic programs are of high quality to me, as well as music, art, and I like the variety of field trips too. Parents get involved here. PTA is a strong group at Briarcliff. The teachers and the Principal keep us (parents) up to date and involved more than a lot of schools compared to some of my friends I know with kids in other schools.
