    If I could rate zero stars I would. The only air conditioner in the building is in the office and library. If you want answers to anything please don't waste your time calling. You will be placed on hold for long periods of times or may not even get anyone to answer your call. No tissue or soap in most bathroom areas. There is no playground and maintenance is horrible. My kindergarten was released off the bus at a stop that wasn't hers. The only plus side to this school is that the teachers are nice. This is the only public school choice in my district at the moment but as soon as the opportunity to transfer comes along I will transfer my children. I will never be comfortable with my child going to this school under these conditions. Sorry if this review is harsh but I'm only speaking the truth. If you like this school then good for you. My child deserves to have the best education possible and this school just isn't making the cut.

    I love the staff they actually care....I would tell anyone to send their children especially for 6th grade.

    They spent an awful lot of time preparing the children for the state tests. however why doesn't my fifth grader know anything about science or fractions. It's truly disturbing. She has gone from the honor roll to a state test student. i am almost certain that my children will not be returning to Brunswick school.
