I took my daughter out of Emily Brittain this year. I'm tired of the terrible teaching here. Math class is a joke. The teacher "teaches" one thing, the homework is a review of LAST year's "teaching", but the tests are on what was taught in class but never practiced! Science class only has ONE book! ...  Read more

What another amazing year. My child has attended Emily Brittain for 5 years now, since kindergarten. Every year the teachers rise to meet the needs of children in their classroom. My daughter loves her teachers and loves learning. She comes home daily telling me about how much fun she had learning! ...  Read more

Well, I'm back again. Once again I have spent the school year teaching my child because the teachers didn't. The kids are put into groups where they "teach" each other. They even give each other spelling tests. I'm not real sure what the teacher do all day. I do know the science teacher screams at ...  Read more

I, for the most part, agree, after dealing with Summit Township, that EB is one of the better schools in Butler Co. I also have a child who needs extra help and the teachers have 'gone the extra mile' to accomodate us. As for fighting to get our child's needs, met - I wouldn't exactly call it a fight. ...  Read more

If your child has a special need this is not the school for them. It may seem that special eed children are getting their needs met but it is only after parents of the children fight countless hours and threaten due process that these children get thier needs met. This school is always blamimg the ...  Read more

My daughter is in 6th grade now and treasured every one of her years at EB. For those of you saying the special needs children don't get what they need, you are wrong. My daughter says that there's a mentally ill child in her class that gets perfect help from his own helper. There was also a handicap ...  Read more
