hi my daughter will be attending this school for 6 grade due to nathaniel hawthorne closing i really dnt want her to go to bw due to the bad things i have been hearing about the school is there any suggestions on another school where i could send her PLEASE HELP....
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.
