15 Parent Reviews for Bret Harte Elementary School

I love Bret Harte. There is so much for the kids to get involved in and the parents do a lot to help with student enrichment, including bringing in extra teachers for an hour each day to help lower the size of the reading groups. That happens because the parents are dedicated to helping raise the funds ...  Read more

Just came back home from another wildly successful Back to School night at Bret Harte. We moved here from the Northeast a few years ago and have been pleasantly surprised by our local school. We have a GATE (gifted) kid, an special needs (autistic) kid, and a "traditionally developing" kid. Every single ...  Read more

I moved to Burbank 11 years ago without knowing anything about the city nor the local schools. My neighbors mentioned that Bret Harte was a friendly community with wonderful teachers. When my first child entered, I was pleasantly surprised by the school. I have now grown to trust the teachers, principal, ...  Read more

Our daughter has good grades but we appreciate the effort Principal Taylor makes for the low scoring students. ...  Read more

When we were evaluating schools, we selected Bret Harte because of Principal Taylor's commitment to sustaining a well rounded curriculum despite challenging budget cuts. Art, music, P.E., and technology are the norm here. Academics are bolstered by split school schedules and at-level reading groups ...  Read more

The below comment is absolute nonsense, I am a father of students who attend this school, your comment about the leader not doing favors without something in return is ludicrous. She has done many favors for my family over the years with nothing for her to gain. Sorry you feel this way about her and ...  Read more

The worst school by far...because of its terrible uncaring leader who is influenced by the monetary favors she receives by parents. Your children will not be challenged. The principal will not listen to your concerns, she will only sugar coat her lack of knowledge of how to run a school, teachers are ...  Read more

We've been touring schools lately, as our son is preparing to register for transitional kindergarten. We were very impressed with the quality of the facilities, and the teaching and support staff at Brett Harte. They also had a great book fair.

We think Bret Harte is great. Our son has had excellent teachers over the years. The office is friendly.
