We've been a part of Brier Elementary for 7 years and have been very happy. The school had a change of principals and some teacher changes, but the dynamic parental involvement has kept the school strong. With the new principal, I feel like we've found a great and lasting leader. My children have and are thriving. I honestly couldn't be any happier.

We have a great, new principal at Brier Elementary - Johnna Stewart - and her leadership is really having a positive influence on our school community. This is a great school with excellent teachers/ support staff and increasingly active parents.

There's a strong community feel at Brier Elementary and most parents are pretty active at the school. Student academic success is a very high priority. There's a great Garden Club, active student council and a lot of social events.

Brier Elementary is a great learning community. There's an exceptional teaching staff, caring support staff and committed school leadership. The PTA is very welcoming and provides a lot of social opportunities. I it also channels funds to classrooms to support student learning. There's a very active Watch DOG program for dads to get involved at the school.

My daughter attended Brier Elementary K-6. She had good teachers for the most part. The main areas of improvment come in the office area. I believe it was 2 maybe 3 years ago that one of the office employees left. This has improved the first impression you would get by 100%. She was awfull to the kids. I saw many examples of children being treated unfairly by her when I was there helping in the classrooms. The current principal could use some lessons in leadership. The first time I met her was in the summer time a week or so before school started. She was dressed entirely inappropriately, (almost right out of a Van Halen video). She treats the children as if they are her friends. I always felt she treated the students like she wanted to be their favorite babysitter. The parent involvement is pretty big at this school, although I always hated the parties they through for the kids....tables and tables of junk food - cookies-cupcakes-all volunteer, but it could get rediculious at times.

My daughter attend Brier Elementary 1 year and she was in the 3rd grade. Horrible experience, her teacher was just horrible. No communications were ever sent home about anything (progress of child, school events, class events). Were are happy that we are no longer at this school.

Brier Elementary is an exceptional school. My son went there for 2nd and 3rd grade and we love his teachers, principal and the other staff members there. My son has excelled in math and english since he has been at this school.

We have more than one child at Brier. Class sizes are small and productive. While the majority of the teachers are excellent and go far beyond just teaching, they often have to do this inspite of the administration. The rules and constraints placed by the principle have made attending Brier a challenge. The weekly news letters sent home are condescending and at times conflicting with our responsibilities as parents. The music program is strong and well supported, but the rest of the activities are quite limited.

I have one daughter at Brier Elementary. When she struggled with reading in 1st grade, she was placed in a special reading program and received the help needed. Now she is confident in her reading abilities. I find the staff at Brier and the parent involvement to be way above average.They are truly concerned about the whole student and learning combined.

I have 3 children that have attended Brier. My youngest is still there. All of them are doing very well in school. The teachers really take the tme to make sure your child is on track. When my daughter struggled in math she had a 5th grade teacher that made her feel good about the subject. Now, in middle school, she just got an 'A' on her report card, thanks to that teacher. The staff is also very responsive to the emotional side of their students.. Keeping kids believing in themselves. They are an incredible group.

My 2nd grade daughter has been attending Brier Elementary since Kindergarten. We've found the teachers and principal to be available and responsive to all of our concerns. The teachers, under the principal's leadership, are creative and seem very motivated to help their students achieve. We have lots of opportunities for parent involvement in the classroom, and in support of the PTA. We are looking forward to four more years at Brier Elementary.

Brier Elementary is made up of a committed group of parents and educators. I have a student who graduated from Brier Elementary in 2001 and has done very well in both the Middle School and now in her first year os High School. In 2001, the year my daughter graduated, the principal retired. I currently have a daughter in the 4th grade at Brier, since the arrival of the new principal, things have really gone downhill! I know of many families who have pulled there children from Brier Elementary and have chosen to put them at a private school.
