My son is in 2nd grade and my daughter will be in kindergarten. We live in the neighborhood and love walking to school and meeting up with all of their classmates on the way. Principal Hutcheson is excellent and makes every effort to hear and address both students' and parents' concerns. The teachers are great as well, and have challenged and nurtured my son each year. Extra opportunities for more challenging work in the gifted and talented program have kept my son even more engaged in school. The IB World program is unique and beneficial to students at all grade levels. Briargrove Elementary is a great neighborhood school with a good sense of community and academic excellence.

The teachers are really good. Our issues with communication and the principal can be overlooked because the teachers at Briargrove, to me, are pretty caring educators which is what matters most to me.

My Son attended this school for 2 years, 3rd and 4th grade, his teacher was Ms. ZaZa, she is the best teacher ever. I also really liked the school and all the activities that they use to encourage the children to learn with a lot of fun activities, I liked that you can have lunch with your kid any time, I use to worked 5 minutes from the school so sometimes I drove there and had lunch with him he loved it. I’ve never have a problem with the ladies in the front desk or with the teachers, the only minor think is that my kid complained sometimes that they won’t let him run in the playground, and I’m sure is to keep everyone safe, but that’s the time to play, my son told me, is not fun jus to be standing there.

I do not have children that attend here but, I was a perspective parent who was considering sending my child here and never got past the front desk. The women at the front desk were horrible and rude. I can not imagine how they are allowed to continue to work there. They have no customer service skills at all. They in no way made me feel welcomed. I asked questions only to the quick answers with no details. My child would have been a kindergartener at this school so, as a first time parent struggling through the process of registering her child for school they had no compassion, understanding, or time to give me. I was bother to them and they made sure I was aware of it. Everyone knows the front desk is the first and last impression people get when entering and leaving a place. They sure did leave an impression but it was not one I will remember fondly.

My son has been here from Kindergarten, he is now in the 2nd grade. First couple of years were good. My son enjoyed going to this school until this year. New principal is unorganized. And it comes across in the teachers as well. I don't feel that they are setting students up for success. Very unhappy with this school this year. I don't think my son will be returning next year. I also agree with some comments that they don't care about anything but money. Will be sending my son to a Katy school next year. They have higher ratings and better curriculum to set students up for success.
