    Unfortunately this school has been closed due to the budget deficit in TUSD. All students at this school are encouraged to attend Morgan Maxwell K-8 as their receiving school.

    My two childern attend Brichta. It is a great community and social elementary school. It is strong in language writing and artistic expression. Outside of these areas the school is very average sometimes below average. Students are not pushed or motivated to achieve excellence.
