My kids went to this school for 4 years. There are several military kids in this school, due to it's position. I loved the school. Yes, there are areas for improvement. But overall, I highly reccomend it. The Principal tries very hard to get parents involved in as much as possible. The lunchroom monitors are very nice and courteous. Not just to the parents, but especially to the children. This school does everything within it's power to bring your child up to speed if they are behind. My son for instance went from a reading level of 2 his first grade year to a reading level of 15 in a matter of 3 months. I loved this school. Check out their SOL scores, they are impressive.
Birdneck is a wonderful school! The principal is excellent! She knows the children by name and makes a point of engaging them in conversations. All teachers I have had experience with have been great. They have lots of evening events to encourage parental involvement.
fantastic academic programs, they have chorus and drama for the older elementary grades. They have a fantastic art and music program. Faculty is incredible!
I am very happy with this school. I have 2 children currently in this school. One child will be entering 2nd grade and the other will be in half kindergarten half special ed. My son has PDD and ADHD and they have been wonderful with him. The school has brought him a long way in their behavior classes. He also gets speech therapy provided by the school. They have made it possible for my son and I to actually have conversations. It has been a blessing to have their services. The teachers are very patient and attentive to both of my children. My children enjoy going to this school and I have no worried allowing them to go.
Birdneck seems to be an average school based on test scores but their bus routes are horrible and need to be improved. If your child has to attend Birdneck try to arrange other modes of transportation for your child to and from school.
I have had two children at Birdneck and the only problem we had was that one of my children was having problems learning and they just ignored her problems and sent him on to junior high school. They don't believe in holding children back. Other than that Birdneck is one of the better schools in the area.
I have three children who were previous students of Birdneck, they are now 19, 15, & 12. I also have a child that will start K this fall. Birdneck was a wonderful experience not just for my children but also for me.
