Briar Vista is an excellent elementary school with a caring and engaged staff. It offers teaching in the Montessori method, a unique opportunity amongst public schools. The size of the school is not overwhelming. There is good parent involvement and support.

I have three girls at BVE in 3 grades, this is our third year there. I had always heard lukewarm reviews about the school, but we were determined to make our local school work.

Ran into a problem when trying to get my son in for prek. They were unorganized about how to sign up and downright RUDE. The front office and principal need to find another career path bc they hate what they do. So sad because children are involved. We moved to Gwinnett for the better schools since and ...  Read more

Briar Vista has an awful principle and the staff is extremely rude. It's seems like they dislike the children and it pains them to be there. The afterschool is not any better, the parents are spoken to aggressively and so are the children. DO NOT SEND YOUR KIDS HERE....

My son is just finishing his first year in the Montessori program here in Kindergarten. He is able to read beyond a first grade level, he can do math I wouldn't expect to see until 2nd grade and his maturity level exceeds my hopes. His teacher was committed, responsive, involved, and completely dedicated ...  Read more
