I love Briar Woods! The teachers are so helpful and everyone is so friendly. The only thing that I would like to change is the safety of the school, when visitors are coming in, they should have to go directly to the office and not have access to the entire building right away.
I really loved Briar Woods High School. The teachers are great, academics are great! Teachers will definitely help you pass all of your exams and tests. A very safe environment, the people are amazing. Our athletics are outstanding as well! Although, most kids have developed the habit of vaping/juuling, but other than that, the school is amazing. Way better than most schools.
