I love this school. They have great spirit and are very helpful and accommodating to any issues you may have. I am completely satisfied with everything my child has learned and is learning and would recommend this school to anyone looking for a quality elementary school.

Briscoe Academy is doing an excellent job in a challenging socio-economic environment. The children come from a wide variety of lower income families, many with only a single parent. The school is situated in an older part of town that seemingly never rose above a 1940's mixed use zoning arrangement that has small businesses and office building interspersed with housing areas. At one time the area was more affluent, but now the parents' jobs don't bring in as much, as evidenced by clothing, cars, and life style indicators such as fine arrays of tattoos and cigarettes. Nevertheless, the children come, as well dressed and supplied as possible. The teaching staff is committed, caring, and sensitive to the cultural, social, and functional needs of their pupils. Most teachers are apparently bilingual. There are many activities and field trips. Good work is rewarded. Discipline incidents are handled fairly and good behavior recognized. The school building itself is well maintained, albeit on a limited budget. The evidence of excellence is my granddaughters ability to read above grade level and excel in all subject areas. Success is enabled and reinforced at Briscoe Academy.

This school is not interested in the children at all by far. They are more concerned with funding and do not care about the whereabouts of their children....1 of the teachers allowed my child to leave without getting identification, and for 3 hours I worried about my child's whereabouts...then my child was singled out and punished because I spoke up, and this is how they treat parents for their own institution's mistakes! I would not recommend this poor excuse for a school to anyone! If there was a slot for zero stars...that's what I would give them*

Great school, teachers motivated to have kids succeed. We travel in from Converse, well worth the trip. No complaints. Great staff and employees. Wish grades went beyond 6th grade. But with good foundation, children will do well when transfer to another school.

Teachers work hard in giving the students enriched academics despite their background.

There are good teachers and is a nice family friendly school the best if you ask me.
