Brinson Memorial Elementary Ratings & Reviews

As the 2014 school year comes to a close, we are just as pleased with Brinson as we were when my oldest started there 6 years ago. We are a military family. We had a child or children (depending on the year) at Brinson, left for a year, and then returned to New Bern. My older two kids missed Brinson terribly the year they were gone. They were happier and overall got a better education than at their other school. Our youngest and middle child are currently there and continue to thrive. The teachers are very engaged. Sure, some are better than others, but I haven't had a bad teacher experience so far. The school does very well on standardized tests without obsessing over and stressing the kids about the tests (as compared with another high achieving local school where my friend's child developed test anxiety and spent most of third grade stressed out to the point of not wanting to go to school - and she was a good student). Brinson finds an excellent balance of urging the children to excel while not smothering them. My ONLY gripe is that I wish the curriculum spent more time on grammar. If you are moving to the area, rest assured that Brinson is a positive, safe place.

Brinson is a wonderful school! We have been so happy with every aspect of our child's education while a student here. The teachers and staff truly put the best interest of the children first. Our new principal brings a fun energy to the school and the kids love her. She has very high expectations for the faculty and the students. The PTA and parent volunteers are very involved and work to make Brinson such a special place.

My daughter just finished kindergarten this year at Brinson and I am very pleased to say this is an excellent school all around. I believe her teacher had pure dedication to each and everyone of her students. I believe her teaching tactics were excellent. She didn't have her students learn only from worksheets and books but from hands on activities which make kids want to learn. What a lot of parents forget is, it is not only the teachers responsibility to teach our children, it is ours as well. It is a group effort and we both (parent and teacher) have to be on the same page. I believe at Brinson many parents are involved with the school and there children and that is why this school has tested highly. A lot of people say Brinson is a "military" school, I disagree. Brinson is there doing what is meant to be done, teaching our children. Giving them structure and discipline and setting them up for success. They are teaching our children to become productive citizens!

My daughter has attended Brinson since kindergarten. Although the front office personnel are not the most welcoming, she has received a top notch education. She has had excellent teachers and I could't be more thrilled with her third grade teacher. She has gone from reading on a third grade level at the beginning of the year to reading on a sixth grade level in a matter of months. If you want a strong school without all the fluff, this is one to choose.

We moved from VA public schools and were very disappointed with Brinson in terms of accelerated and special needs children. They do not have accelerated placement until Grade 4 and all special needs children are lumped together by age. A lot of the teachers have limited expectations for the children.
