Blue Ridge Independent School District Reviews

My experience at BRISD has been a good experience. The last 2.5 years have been the best! There has been much needed improvement in our schools as far as curriculum and teachers that are here to teach and want the students to be successful and continue to be successful.

Now clubs and other student organizations are being recognized for their outstanding accomplishments. In the past it was only sports that was being recognized for their accomplishments.

My experience has been good and I hope it continues to improve.

It's a safe environment, the staff is very helpful, energetic, and friendly. The food isn't good but they do what they can with the taxes they get. The principal is the best anyone could ever ask for. The school is always clean!
I really love that Blue Ridge is small. I moved to Blue Ridge because it was a small town and a small school and I wanted to be in that enviroment. It is growing, however, so it won't be small for long. I do not think there is much I would change. It is ran really well and all the people and teachers are super nice.
