J Harold Brinley Middle School 2

My son went to this school back in 2007-2008. There were shootings and kids bringing guns to school, luckily we moved after only being in the area for a year. Why am I writing a review now 5 years later?! Because my son was giving a grade he didn't deserve and ALMOST had to take a class over again. It was his computer class. The teacher gave him a NP. Well we didn't know that was on his report card until he got in the 11th grade and my husband and I knew we wouldn't have missed that so we fought it and you know what happen?! The school was wrong. The principal said the teacher must have accidently bubbled in the wrong thing. I was completely floored. But I am writing because if this happen to my son I know it has happen to someone else and I am hoping by me writing about it someone can see that if you fight the school on it you will get change! He now has a pass in his computer class and doesn't have to take it over again!

Previous Parent here. With brinley's revolving door of principals and teachers that refuse to e-mail to help working parents stay informed and the complete lax security this school is unsafe and should be taken over for the sake of the children. After my son attended I refused to let anymore of my children experience this and moved out of state to give my children a chance. If you can don't let your kids attend there is only a handful of good teachers and I feel for them

This is a great school. I went here for 6th grade but my mom transfered me out. She thought that the fights outside of the school were because of the students but some of those were highschoolers. This is one my favorite schools and it has great people! The teachers I had were my favorites.

I am currently an 8th grade student at brinley middle school. If you read alot of these other messages on this wedsite they talk very negitive about our school. Brinley is not a bad school at all. Yes it has had its bad years but that was in the past. There are inly a hand full of kids who just simply dont care... All of the other ones have moved on to hhigh school. It is not our fault that the subsitutes that come here read about our past behaivor and judge the students who go there now. There are only a few students who are rebelus now. It erks me how people just focus on the past and just because we have had a bad past that it falls back on the kids now. Elisha

There are alot of kids at this school who just don't care. But blame that on their parents, not on the school! It's a good school with lot's of activities. They have accelerated English, Math, Reading, and Science as well as pre-algebra for 7th grade.

I was a long-term subsititute at this school. I have never had such a group of disrespectful students and lack of administrative support, and I even subbed at juvenile hall, which was sadly much better than Brinley. The Principal 'Ms. Gibson' never left her office, even after I sent her multiple e-mails asking her to please come to my classroom and back me up with discipline she never came. The kids ran the class, and there was nothing I could do about it. I had a 6th grade student tell me to 'f*ck off,' and he was back from the office in 10 minutes. What a horrible horrible horrible school.
