    I really like Briarwood my 6 year old is now attending his second year at Briarwood. In kindergarten I saw his improvement with learning his teacher is one of the best of the best. I did not know that school has so much going on behind the scenes ( there is so much work to be done and so little time ). I realized how important it was as a volunteer at the school ( I wanted to do something productive with the extra time I had on my hands as a stay at home mom/caterer). I wish Briarwood all the best. Sincerely J.W.

    There is no significant extracurricular activities. The teacher quality is substandard. Parent involvement is almost non-existent.

    Wow. Look at the test scores. Don't send your child here.
