The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.
Zero communication between the administration and the parents. We would go weeks without being told that our child's teacher was fired and they were with someone new (this happened multiple times). All of the good reviews are from before the ownership changed last fall (of 2013) and it went straight downhill from there. Unable to hold onto any decent teachers. Our two children went through at least 12 teachers in the 11 months they were there! They staff so tightly that they'll have an office person like the accountant or their marketing guy in the classroom with the kids to meet the "teacher" to student ratio. The teachers that were left when we finally gave up were nice enough, but appeared to be drastically inexperienced and really just glorified babysitters. The owner appears unaware of how to run a daycare facility, staffing it with what appears to be the cheapest labor (young inexperienced staff) that can be found. The best decision we ever made was to give up and pull them out. There are better options in the area, and after two weeks at their new school, our kids love it! Seriously, as one parent to another, do not waste your time with Briarwood!
This school is one of the worst run school I have every had the displeasure of dealing with they are constantly off ration teacher/student the teachers are overwhelmed and dont have time to deal with the children appropriately and therefore get stressed out and are not nice to the children They cannot keep a teacher or a director for any length of time. If I could give them 0 stars I would. This is the most unprofessional and poorly run school I have ever known I had to pull my child out of the preschoold class due to their incompetence. I would say run dont walk to another school!!! They have new owners so the good reviews are from the previous school owners. The new owners have destroyed the school with their mismanagement!!!
The teachers were very good and care about the children. The leadership was less than helpful. I had difficulty finding answers to questions and we experienced a lack of communication with the administration. We removed our child from Briarwood Academy in Seekonk. Very disappointing.
I've been using Briarwood since 2000 (shortly after the school opened their doors). I have 5 children (3 through 16 years old). We switched the daycare of my oldest two twice and can attest to numerous less than desireable experiences with both schools. When my third child arrived I literally cried after looking at all local facility based schools in the area. Thankfully a friend encouraged me to look into Briarwood as the facility had just opened. It's history from there as they say. We love it love it love it! If you don't then you have to experience the other less than desirable places out there. Our 3rd and 4th child attended since infants and our 5th is currently enrolled. Our 'Briarwood Graduates' ask to go back and visit the warm and friend Administrators and Staff at Briarwood all the time and they are always welcomed. We highly recommend Briarwood.
