My son used to go to a private school in Santa Clara till they decided to move to San Jose. I was a little wary of the ratings but decided to try it. I think it was the best move. The teachers are great. The principal is excellent. Works very hard. The school is giving a lot of opportunities for parent ...  Read more

The front desk woman is the RUDEST person I have ever dealt with in my entire life. Since day 1 when I went there to sign up my daughter, the secritary has treated me (and my 5 year old daughter!!) like we are absolutely nothing and only speaks to us with disrespect and disgust. This continues everytime ...  Read more

Our son is in 5th grade and it's his second year in this school. We've transferred here from Cupertino and we're so happy with the school! Even though Briarwood on average does not do as well on test scores as Cupertino schools do, it has a much better environment in the school. The test scores could ...  Read more

The school is academically great. However, parent & teacher participation in PTA is dismal. Parent participation in assisting events is awful. We have to get volunteers from the local High Schools to get needed volunteers for events.

I found that Briarwood school had pretty good academic programs. I really think it was just my son's teacher that was great. He was in kindergarten and was taught by Miss Langs. She was awesome with him! Even though she had many ESL students and my son was a 'high' student, she still took the time to ...  Read more

I think Briarwood is an excellent school. Most of the teachers are extremely good. Our teacher for fourth grade was the best ever. The principal is also very responsive and dedicated to the school and the students. The resource team and aides are also very good. I have been very happy with the education ...  Read more

Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled.

The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.
