I am a students at Britney. The fights are really scary. I wouldn't send a kid here if you have another option. The principals, and some of the newer staff are good, but the school is so violent and there is no respect for each other, the rules, or teachers. Ambulances and police are called because of the fights sometimes.

This school had a bad reputation over the years. My son is just finishing his first year at this middle school, and I am mostly happy with the school. The principal who started about 4 years ago at this school implemented some great changes. I feel like it is a good learing environment and the teachers communicate well.

brittney woods middle school in university, mo, is a HORRIBLE NIGHTMARE for my daughter they serve 6,7,and 8 the graders and my daughter has attended this schhol since 6 grade her life has changed starting in her 7th grade year, THe principle she is a JOKE, she walks around in tight skirts to try to look good but covers up the wrong during of ABUSIVE teachers they have working there. That school is NOT a safe or friendly enviroment and it has a bunch of GHETTO acting children and Ghetto acting a some have no concern of the well being of the children teachers there. To me it is a upsale LEAN ON ME school. I'm glad this is our LAST year there she will not attend the HIGH school either because it is the same. I would not recommend this school girls walking around with clothes that thier parents were when they go to a club the dress code is NOT enforce the school needs to go uniform because the fast girls is A MESS.

We have 2 children in this school in 6th and 8th grade. The Principal won Missouri Middle School Principal of the Year last year. She is a great leader for this school and is pushing them in their SIP Plan to not just meet goals but exceed them. The math, algebra and geometry teachers are fantastic. My kids have both scored in the Advanced level and they have received great educations here. One thing too about U City - the friendships that are formed here last for life. We see this in the community which is very diverse yet has such a community in that people are very connected to one another. We are the only district to hold Robotics at elementary, Middle and High School. With the passing of 2 Bond issues in the past 5 years, renovations have been done to our buildings and BWMS has a gorgeous library and new 6th grade wing. Come and tour for yourself but we have been very happy.

My son had a great experience at Brittany Woods Middle School. I felt the teachers, principal and staff did a great job of helping him through a difficult time of life. He is doing well in high school now because of good preparation at BW.

Brittany Woods is improving every day. Caring teachers and administrators and the Missouri Middle School Principal of the Year Jamie Jordan are working hard to make Brittany a great middle school. The more parents who choose to send their children here and get involved, the better it will become.

I currently have two children at BWMS and I'm impressed with the education they're getting so far. My 8th grader just received her Comm Arts scores. She placed 'Advanced' on MAP and ranked 92% nationally on the Terra Nova. Both my children feel safe while at school and their classmates are good friends who are encouraged to help each other. The school could improve their communication a little better but that is hopefully being addressed.

I love Brittany Woods my daughter loves it. The only reason other people don't like is because there are many black people. My daughter has made excellent friends. I love the new principle. I personally fell bad for the people who chose not to go. It's there lose. Go BWMS!!!!!

Brittany Woods is the worst place to send your child. Thankfully, I'll send my children to a different school next year. Discipline is backwards, and the attitude of some of the administration is immature and disrespectful. I will be happy for my daughter when she leaves this year.

Go BWMS! Awesome school, I dont see why you wouldnt send your kid to this school, if you are sending your kids to Hixson, Wydown, or Ladue Horton, you are most definetly missing out on the best experience your child will ever have.....

A melding school for students of widely diverse academic achievement and background, Brittany Woods succeeds to a far greater extent than it fails thanks to dedicated staff, an imaginative curriculum, and a strong focus on discipline and achievement.

School at Brittany Woods is great. The teachers are wonderful, nice, and smart (thankfully). The students are nice and [sometimes] polite. Just as long as you do not fraternize with certain people, and you will be good to go! You should most definitely send your kid(s) to BWMS, because we have got three different languages to take! There is a million sports you can be involved with, but Field Hockey is the best.

The Principal is excellent and has been very good for discipline. Overall, the academics are generally good, with some classes being excellent and a few just average. My son is enjoying his science class because of the teacher and the extensive hands-on work. The Latin classes are great. The jazz band and concert band have (and continue to) produce well-trained kids who have significant experience performing on their own and with professionals. Sports are offered in several ways: soccer is a club sport, while X-country, track & field, field hockey and basketball are amongst the school's team sports. The Latin club has been highly successful in national competition. Other clubs are available (chess, etc.). Parental involvement is strong for a core group, and the core seems to be expanding. One son is about to finish there and another child will begin there next year.

My son had a good experience (he had mostly accelerated classes), and I'm looking forward to sending my daughter there. Great principal! No safety concerns. My son loved the art class, and played soccer. Small group of very active parents -- wish more parents got involved.
