The school has extremely helpful teachers and staff and very nice and friendly families. The children always feel safe playing in the school yard.

We moved here a year ago and my 2 sons started Juana Briones in Fall 2008. They have loved every day of it and had no problems adjusting. It's a great small school with friendly staff, teachers, and very involved PTA.

The school is demographically rich, virtually all teachers are wonderful, and the support services gracious and easy to work with. The emphasis is always on the child's. ...  Read more

It's our fifth year at Briones; we have two children there. Every teacher we've had has been outstanding. Two of our Kindergarten teachers have worked together at Briones for twenty years, and two of our First Grade teachers for over ten. They can teach any kind of student, from high achieving kids ...  Read more
