Map of Bess Brannen Elementary School address.
November 13, 2010
My children have attended Brannen for years. The parent involvement in the school is fantastic. Out of all of our years at Brannen, fourth grade is the worst. It seems in the last years the teachers teach to the state test, not student foundational skills and learning. My child and friends of my child are increasingly frustrated and their confidence is suffering. We as many parents are working hard at home to make it out of Brannen with our childrens self confidence and love for learning in tact. Up until now I have been a huge supporter of Brannen, But that has changed. I question the quality of education for my child and the ongoing training of the teachers.

BB has excellent academic programs and the teachers really do care about the performance of each child. The in school music program is one of the best in the isd. Parents involvement is typically the key resource to get things done within the school and is well represented especially in the lower grades. The counselor at the school is wonderful, she works diligently to develop the character of each child. Special programs really address learning issues that the students may need to overcome. There are no extracurricular programs at the school. There are academic tutorials, managed by dedicated teachers, for students on the boarder line of passing the state test.

I am new to Lake Jackson from Arizona and I have only good things to say about this school. My daughter is very lucky to be a student here. Compared to the quality of education in the Phoenix area, this school and its staff are far superior. The faculty is caring and kind and the kids just seem to love to learn!

Bess Brannen is a great school. I have two children who go there. There is alot of parental involvement. The school encourages alot of volunteers to help, which is a good thing. This gives parents an opportunity to get involved in their childs education and school. The children are great, the teachers are friendly and well respected. I am very proud to be part of the Brannen family.
