Handles bullying effectively: Agree


- a
The counselors have programming to help identify what bullying looks like and what to do if you are the recipient of bullying. It's hard to stop bullying, but this school is using education and a zero-tolerance policy with discipline to help be a part of the solution.

Supports LD students: Agree


- a
This school has an exceptional SpEd team to assist learners with different needs. Gifted and Talented students are well serviced here.


Effective school leaders: Agree


- a
Mr. Mattingly is a nurturing father-figure to these students. He trusts his teachers as professionals and allows them to do their jobs.

Develops character: Strongly agree


- a
The 6th grade Advisory has a character ed program in place. The counselors work hard to have programming, too, that works on this.

Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree


- a
The teachers at Briarhill are topnotch. They love what they do, and it shows.


Amount of homework: Agree


- a
Different subjects and grades do HW differently; however, the overall sentiment is that these students are still kids and shouldn't have more than 20 minutes of HW per core class.

Great school! Great, caring teachers! Admin and office staff are caring and kind. Perfect place to allow your student to thrive and learn. One of the best in Denton County.

LOVE EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS SCHOOL!!! It's THE BEST!!! AWESOME TEACHERS!! My child wanted to go to school everyday and only had one absence the entire year!! He learned so much this year and really enjoyed it!! Mr. Mattingly is an amazing principal!! And shout out to my child's favorite teacher Mrs. Raunam!! However they were all awesome!! My friends from other middle schools in the area were very envious of our PTA program and parent involved activities! This school is a positive, loving, caring and safe environment! (Which to me is the most important aspect) academically: test scores speak for themselves!! Above average!! Thank you Briarhill!!


Develops character: Strongly agree

BMS is awesome!! We had a fabulous year with amazing teachers, amazing principals, amazing counselors, amazing coaches and A VERY AMAZING PTA PROGRAM WITH LOTS OF PARENT PARTICIPATION!!! We moved to this area about 4 years ago from a different Marcus feeder middle school because that school was awful!! I'm SO GLAD WE MADE THE RIGHT DECISION!! There's a program called FOR that encourages positive treatment of fellow students and no bullying! It was a great success! The students are sweet and gracious!! Thank you Briarhill staff for being awesome!!!

Briarhill Middle School is overcrowded. The staff has become jaded and teaching limits imposed by state seem to determine every decision. Many parents have had enough. Our child is very smart but battles some adhd and get very limited real support in BMS. People are all wired different. Educators need to teach not hide behind poor policy. We need to take Big brother out of LISD & Texas education. No child left behind, is a failure. Fix the broken system now. Our kids deserve better. Thank you,
