    "caring teachers, great sense of "community, character, and compassion" with the new principal leading engaging whole-school lessons at monthly assemblies, wonderful nature area with students planting and caring for trees...excellent music teacher who is a master educator and motivator - getting 1st graders to understand, apply, and enjoy learning notation and intervals (through fun clapping activities and movement-based musical activities with relevant and artistic props) - and she then runs a great choir for the upper grades; this jives well with the annual upper-grade musical planned in coordination with a local theater company; Mrs. Zufall and Miss Wilkens are excellent in particular - loved our experience at Birchview!"

    "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."
