My experience with Brushy school has been great! The teachers & staff are great! My youngest just started Kindergarten & it is amazing how much he has learned in just a few weeks. Thanks to his wonderful teacher Mrs. McKenzie. The sports and everything is great at this school. I just wish it had a high school!

Last year my kids came from another district and were both struggling at the bottom of their classes. By the end of last term, I had Honor roll and student of the month certificates coming in regularly! My youngest went from reading recovery to reading advanced for his grade. Wonderful!

Two of my grandchildren attend this school. It was the only school that would accpt my grand-daughter as a regular kindergarten student when she was bored in Head Start. the teachers and principle were eager to help her to excel in academics and sports. My grandson is also being encouraged to excel and is given extra assignments when he gets bored. The Brushy Academic Team is an excellent tool to keep gifted students interested in school. The coaching staff can be rough on the students, but so do the coaching staffs at all schools. If you don't push a student, he/she will not succeed. I am proud that my grandchildren attend Brushy. I encourage all parents to send their children to smaller, rural schools, where each student is treated as an individual.

I would have to say that three of my four children go to a really great school and the teachers are wonderful. I love the school so much that I drove eight miles every day for the last to years to take my children to the school. thanks c lindsy

My children have been going to Brushy Elementary for over 6 years now. I have found that the teachers are excellent in teaching techniques to the children that improve the childs own personal way of learning. The teachers communicate with the parents to provide the child with the best possible learning skills. My children love going to school at Brushy because of the easy going students and the discipline given on bullying others. Every child is given the discipline they need in a non-bias way. This school really cares for their students, unlike most of the schools in this area. I am not looking forward to my children going past the 8th grade and having to go to another school in this area at all! Brushy is the best in this area and will always be!

My daughter has changed for the better since starting this school. Her grades are up, she is happy everyday, the teachers are amazing, providing one on one attention to our children allowing them to better understand a subject. What sports they might not offer, I believe is up to the parent to find it locally. We should all be very very proud of this place! Thank you a very satisfied mother

In my opinion the strongest point this school has is it's quality of teachers. All the teachers are qualified,and then there's those few that are just fantastic to name one, Mrs.Keer. I hated to rate the teacher quality at 3 because Mrs.Kerr is definetly a 5. As far as sports go,well if i were to rate that it would have got a 0. The coaching is really non-existant,the P. E. class here is you either play sports or I don't care what you do,leaving several kids unattended alot of times. In my overall opinion a school is only as good as it's,student body,facaulty and principal make it. So when you have a student body guided towards being good old boys and a principal who would rather punish the group than find out who he really needs to be punishing, I don't see this school or it's moral getting any better.

If you have a child who is college bound this is not the school for you. Higher education is not stressed. Dicipline is rare and light. Fighting among the students is the norm and the teachers look the other way. If you don't fit the 'good ole boy' mold you don't fit in, there is no room for deviation.

I attended this school as a child and I sent my child there this year. I had nothing but WONDERFUL experiences there and nothing has changed since my daughter has started attending. The teacher/student ratio is great! The children always have one on one attention. I have nothing but great things to say about this school. Highly recommended!

Our experience with this school has been very disappointing. If your child does not play sports he will either sit alone for an hour each day or roam the grounds unattended. If he does play sports he will be berated and insulted, and his self-esteem will suffer terribly. If your child is gifted there will be no program for him. Fighting and bullying are rampant. If, however, your goal is to raise a 'good old boy' with a C-average and bad manners, then you have come to the right place. Otherwise, I would look to the many other schools in the area that actually care about discipline and education.
