Briar Vista is a great school. The older buildings may be a turn off at first, but once you go inside, you realize this school has so much heart. The PTO is very active and involved, and Cammie Neill is a dream of a principal. Every teacher at this school wants their students to succeed - I would see it in the halls every day at pick up. The compassion is through the roof. Also, once it's safe again, International Night is so much fun - Briar Vista celebrates its diversity and has all the families prepare dishes reflecting their culture. It's massively attended and just a joy. I had the option to send my child to Fernbank and I'm so glad I chose Briar Vista. Students thrive here, whether they can ace a standardized test or not.
Briar Vista Elementary School is a hidden gem. The teachers, administration and staff are dedicated, caring and extremely competent. Our child has thrived at this school and we couldn’t be happier with her progress academically and emotionally. Do not be turned away by this school’s rating as only a 5/10. They have increased their CCRPI score increased to an 85.6 which is the same or better than surrounding schools. I strongly encourage prospective parents to visit and your this amazing school.
I sent to a school tour and was blown away with school and the Principal Cammie Neill. I have done several school tours and it was the first time a principal took the time to show me the school. The pride shown in the students, faculty and Administor was felt in each class room I toured from Pk to 5. She has me excited and the possibility of my daughter attending the Briar Vista Elementary.
While the physical space is older and could use major renovation and updating, the people inside the building are amazing. I was very apprehensive about sending my kid to BVE, but when my student is picked up and I see them run to hug teachers and admin, I know they are truly cared for. Awesome school!
