    "I have been nothing but pleased with our Birchview expereince. My son has thoroughly enjoyed his first grade and now second grade teachers. The staff is very welcoming and involved. I highly reccomend Birchview. The pod classrooms are not ideal, but our a reality of the financial state of MN. They do an excellent job with the space they have."

    "Since this is greatschools.org, it's important to point out that Birchview isn't exactly a great school, but rather merely "good" school in a great district. Not every school is equal across the school district, that's why it is really important be involved in your child s academic experience. Albeit, Birchview is blessed with a strong principal (who is credited for making much headway), who is retiring. In addition, they have some very nice teachers. Be warned though, as they teach in pods. That s a nice way of thinking of an open room with four separate classrooms in one room, divided by book shelves. Not only is it loud, but it is very cluttered due to space limitations. Things were hanging from the ceiling and there wasn t an inch of wall space noticeable. The classroom and building is also dark. Not really an environment conducive to learning. There were only two slivers for windows in the classrooms. It s really not where we, let alone our children, would like to be 8 hours a day."

    "Birchview has excellent teachers and an outstanding principle - in turn they have wonderful students achieving academic excellence. I wish more schools in our nation could do all the great things that Birchview is doing!"

    "My son attended this school only to have the kindergarten teacher constantly questioning my son of my parenting then getting other parties involved especially outside sources. I understand the concerns the teacher may have had, but my son was traumatized by their actions."
