    "Congratulations Birney! This is a remarkable move forward in 5th grade Math, and area where we had been struggling a bit in recent years. Keep up all the hard work Bobcats!"

    "We went to this school for 2 years, and were disappointed by the lack of organization, and the lack of constructive communication from both the principal and the RBUSD. Our first grade classes all had over 30 kids in them, and when we asked if any steps were being taken to reduce class size, we were never given an answer. For the following year, at the last minute they ended up creating a 1st/2nd grade combo class and a 2nd/3rd grade combo class, which to us was not a satisfactory solution, plus they never let us know that was in the works. Bad communication and lack of listening to parents. That being said, loved the other parents and some of the teachers."

    "Birney is like getting a private education at a public school. We have two students there and have had a fantastic experience with both. The Readers and Writers Program they incorporate is phenomenal, and one that other schools and districts are emulating. We feel so fortunate to have such an amazing gem in our backyard."

    "Posted Thursday, February 21, 2013 Report it Birney elementary is a fantastic school. We have two children there and have watched the school grow and improve steadily even in the face of statewide budget cuts. The school made huge gains with the addition of a new principal 4 or 5 years ago so some parents began to panic when the principal changed again in 2011. Having seen both administrators at work, I can only say that this school is blessed. The new principal is a fantastic upbeat leader and the teaching staff is incredible. The icing on the cake is the huge level of parental involvement from proactive people who are tirelessly generous with their time. In a time when state budget cuts threaten to cripple the quality of education, teachers and parents at Birney have filled the void with creative solutions that have allowed the school to continue to grow and improve. Birney received it's Distinguished School honor two years ago and it's rating has continued to climb ever since. Thrilled that my kids have the good fortune to attend this school."

    "Birney is an awesome school with a great amount of parental involvement and fantastic teachers. They also have a wonderful after school program for children of working parents. The administration, PTA and teachers work hard to include everyone and to make the school shine. I have spent time at several other area schools and Birney beats all of them hands down."
