Briarcliff is a wonderful school. The environment there is encouraging and challenging, and, unlike what I've heard/seen from many other area schools, not cripplingly competitive amongst its many high achievers. Great spirit, great community, and most of all fantastic teachers. Amazing AP program sets students up not only to transition well to college settings, but to the top of the collegiate pool.

The teachers have a great group of intelligent kids to work with and they respond in kind. Mr Kashian, the Principal, is fantastic. There is a good mix of classes and AP offering, plus a senior year internship alternative.

I have gone to this school district all my life. Its very good. High quality for honors students and those with learning disabilities. Middle students don't receive as much. Still good though.
