Briarcliff Manor Union Free School District Reviews

My time at Briarcliff is one that I fondly look back upon. Every year I was met with a dedicated staff and a workload which not only prepared me for college but all of life itself. Each year I was prepared for my regents exams due to the excellent teaching quality. That being said the town and the school of Briarcliff have little to no diversity and most kids lack any aspect of culture.
Briarcliff Manor offers an opportunity to be part of a welcoming community. Although it might be called 'the bubble' on the inside, Briarcliff allowed me to prepare for real-life experiences: growth and maturity, a sense of togetherness, spirit, and gratitude.
Overall, the Briarcliff Union Free school district is a great school with teachers who foster learning and success. The athletics are also great as well as the technology package within the school. One thing I would like to see change is the environnement and lack of respect between the students.

The education at Briarcliff is very good. But the diversity and acceptance isn't that great. Its mostly a white people school and only materialistic people who sport branded clothing can fit in well. So if you're that type then its an excellent school.

The teachers are really nice and class discussions are very engaging and challenge creativity.

The education itself is fantastic but like every school not all aspects is good. Guidance Counselors don't respond to emails and have locked doors when you try to visit them.

The school does have an amazing research and STAR (Computer Hardware) program that can look good on applications as well as many amazing clubs.

But the courses can be very challenging and if your just an average student you won't be able to take the best classes that look the most good for college (if you are planning to go)
Excellent academic enrichment classes. Students have the opportunity to enroll in vocational training at offsite educational facilities via Briarcliff career enrichment programs.
It's difficult to find friends. Briarcliff's known for cliques since most students found their friend groups in elementary school. However, many of the teachers are excellent. They care about what their teaching and they try to help the students as much as they can.
Great teachers, great education quality, and all the staff knows my name. Super encouraging, great community.
