Birkes Elementary School Ratings & Reviews

I'm not pleased with this school at all. Every year the curriculum barely changes. The homework is exactly the same year after year. The spelling words are at least two grade levels too easy. Almost every letter or email we receive is full of grammatical errors. The teacher we had for fourth grade writing had very low standards and could not (or would not) correct simple errors. Math is at least a grade level behind where it should be. Going into 5th grade our child is still counting on fingers. If your standards are higher than the state test, this school will not cut it for you.

Very satisfied with the school and its teaching. The staff is awesome. My daughter came from Africa three months ago without speaking or writing any English. Her English has progress so much, I barely have to assist her in her homework . The staff have been a tremendous help, and I really appreciate that.

My kids started fall 2013 and so far i am impressed with the curriculum and the dedication of the teachers. The teachers keep me well informed on the weekly syllabus and i get reports on my kids academic progress.

This is a really great school, perfect communications and highly qualified teachers. The teachers follow up on the kids progress and help the improvement.

The school is well run and most teachers seem to genuinely care about their students. My only complaint is at lunch time. The teachers on lunch duty are supposed to helping the younger grades open their lunches and oversee behavior problems. More often, the teachers are off in a corner socializing and ignoring the raised hands of the kids needing help with their lunches. The teachers seem to forgot that they are not on break but are in the lunch room to do a job. Also, snack time should be added to 1st grade. The students are starving in the afternoon. It is too long of a day for the kids to eat lunch at 11am and then not get out of school until 3:45pm.
