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!!
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,
every teacher is awsome and go above and beyond but i hope im leaving the school because the other students are mean and never think about anyone else but other than that briarhill is good and a safe school with staff that really do care.
What makes this school average is the politics regarding academics & athletics we see each year. It's a Buddy System between most parents & teachers, plus the teachers/coaches do not embrace diversity!
This school is a good school. It would be a great school if teachers and administrators learned the importance of spreading kindness and not the exact opposite. Kids understand kindness and will reciprocate. The biggest issue we face regularly is constantly having to monitor the esembler, finding regular mistakes recorded by teachers. We continuously have to communicate to correct their grading mistakes. The excuse is always 'we have 120 kids to grade'...well, that's your job...not mine! Other than that it is a fine school and the new principal is doing a fabulous job.
