    "Brennemann School is one of the top schools in uptown. The school has high expectations for all students and students leave prepared for high school. Class sizes are small and students get interventions based on their academic needs. The school team has written and received numerous grants to ensure the students have the resources and tools to be successful."

    "Good school for toddlers not for older kids. If you want your child to be computer literate or book smart you won't get it at this school. If they'r taking the ISAT, then they are being drilled for weeks so they can do good on the scores. Toward the end of the year they give project after project for these kids who get no REAL computer time and who's library usage consists on the books they have in class. Bear in mind the teachers do what they are told or are yelled at by the principle and your kids will see a tearful teacher. If your a mother prepare to have a hostel greeting to your concerns. It would be best to have your husband present when speaking to the principle: Sarah D Abedelal. She will try and intimidate you and ask if your ready to transfer your child rather than working together. If you live in the area you can sign your kids up for after school programs because that's where the school learning starts. Its not really the schools fault rather the leadership with in it. You can pass children but give them the basses to learn and be able to use for future learning not setting them up to fail in life."

    "I have no idea how or why the principal, Sarah Abedela, is still working at this school. She is terrible to her staff and never does anything in the better interest of the children. I saw that she has a lawsuit against her by another teacher and I hope that it gets her out of the school. The students and teachers deserve more and should not be in an enviornment where they are treated so badley."

    "I also went to Brenneman in the 60's and 70's when the school was new. I agree that the principal, Miss Sager was old, cruel and did not connect well with students. I had some great teachers, though and got an amazing education there. I went on to college, and am now an Art Teacher. Some of the teachers that made a big impact on me were Miss Brophy, Ms. Simmons, Miss McCune, Miss Nakagawa, Miss Crosby, Mrs. Borgminario, and Mr. Wilson (Gym Teacher) My older brother really connected with Mr. Levin. I also made some great friends while at Brenneman and still connect with some of them."
