I am so impressed with Brenham Elementary School. The staff is so professional and friendly. My children are learning! The building is new and clean. The library is amazing. The administration is on task. We are so pleased!

My son has been going to BES for 3 years and my daughter for two. I could not have put them in a better school. I give BES an A plus for everything.
