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.

Briar Woods is a very good school. It is very academically rigorous and there are a lot of opportunities for students to pursue the things they like. The teachers are probably the best part of the school, they encourage the students to push themselves academically and also make themselves available for students. They hold a lot of office hours and study sessions for students to learn and get help. Also, sports are pretty good, with athletes going to Division 1 schools every year. Also there are a lot of hardworking kids that strive to do well, which helps the overall culture of the school.
