I would have given them a 5 star review until I found out how they failed me and my daughter. In the 3rd grade she was bullied. I dropped her off and picked her up thinking she was safe, but she was so intimidated by the little monster she didn't tell me what was going on. How could I have known unless the teachers had been paying attention? The worst was recess and art class. She used to love art, but when she asked to change tables because of the bully the art teacher told her she made her choice and she would have to live with it. This girl called her names, wrote things on the bathroom wall, and the entire grade turned on my daughter. How could this have not been noticed! I saw the change in her, but I didn't why. The girl told her if she told she would make her life unbearable. Thank god we are gone- in Florida with A rated schools where my daughter is flourishing in an IB school in the honors program. She has tons of friends and is piecing her life together. That girl and her allies will never amount to anything, and shame on Briggs for allowing an atmosphere where bullies are empowered!

After coming from a school where I was more than welcomed to be involved, I felt quite judged here. I saw other parents being welcomed by my child's teacher while I was ostracized. I had to be forceful in a sense to be able to have the minimal amount of involvement. I was supposed to be a "room mom" and all that I got from that was, "I will call you if I need anything, like I said before" from the teacher every time I asked about helping. I never got any calls. Granted this is only one teacher, I felt similar treatment within APT. It was like my outcasted high school experience all over again.

Briggs faculty and staff are truly interested in my children's success. They encourage and model respect for their students and for each other. Students are well behaved and engaged in the learning process. APT is very active and works hard toward supporting the students and the school. The school brought in orchestra and afterschool Spanish teachers for additional opportunities for the students. The music and art programs are well attended. I highly recommend this school to any family.

My duaghters are both graduates of Briggs Elementary School. I could not be happier wtih the level of preparedness that they both possess moving to intermediate education. My children were received into a very warm and nurturing environment as transfers from another elementary school. The walls are beautifully painted with murals, the teachers don't yell at their students and every effort is given to each child to help them succeed.
