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.
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,
