    "My oldest daughter started here in seventh grade. It's not easy starting anywhere when you are the new kid - especially at this grade level. However, the WEB program really helped her adjust quickly. The teachers are great, the office staff, principal and vice pricipals have all been very accessible and responsive whenever I have sought their assistance. They seem to genuinely care about each student. Just as with any school - private or public, there are going to be issues at times with teachers and students that don't see eye-to-eye. But, the staff has always been helpful whenever I've sought their assistance. My only real issue is that the dress code is not strictly enforced - ie. the girls wear shorts that expose their but cheeks if they bend over. Also, the counselor tends to over-involve herself into students personal lives without proper therapy training - she does more harm than good. As with any school, if you get involved as an active parent, your children and yourself will have better experiences overall."

    "Bristow is filled with amazing teachers who really provide opportunities for their students from math tutor hours, after school homework-club, after school events ( parrnt info nights, award ceremonies, science fair, spelling bee and dance socials) WEB, Leadership and FOR Club activities. New instant contact email sent home every Monday to keep the parents in the loop. The academics are also top notch and improving all the time. Teachers make contact with parents letting them know when things need to be addressed."

    "This school is top notch! The extra programs it offers is amazing:Sports, art, music, etc. So many teachers offer programs during lunch and the math program is amazing. Parents and students were givin Math help times where they could simply drop in for help if they need it. Communication is there if parents would take advantage of what is being offered. Great, well rounded school!"

    "Very disappointed with this school so far, communication is poor - from the admin staff who think themselves a human wall keeping parents from the principal, to the foul-mouthed, scantly-dressed students; everything has been a severe let down. Bristow has no GATE, no STEM, nothing! Students are overburdened with hours worth of homework daily. School events poorly organized; I don't feel the principal works well with the kids, leads by intimidation. Office staff, unfriendly, inconsiderate and rude. School year starts 7/30 - a year-round school district, yet students spend a whole 8 hrs at school?! At such rate they should cover more course work, show better grades and offer more electives than most CA schools. But no. I'm already looking into nearby charter schools to get my child out."

    "My son transferred from Adam's Middle School, which is supposed to be a better school. My experience is that Bristow is the better school. Eventhough Bristow and Adams have appx. the same number of students, Bristow feels smaller and more personal. The Principal and teachers really push academics.The students I have interacted with are very respectful.The teachers are awesome and the Principal is great. Bristow is a good fit for us."
