    "My grandson attends Birney Elementary, he is a special needs student and he has progressed so much since he started with Birney, his teachers are exceptional and he loves them all.....but I must also say that it is the small things in life that matter the most; Birney Dads Club comes around every Christmas Eve to give a gift to the kids I don't know if it's only for Special Needs children or for children with single parents but I and my daughter are forever grateful that they made it possible for my grandson to see Santa come to the house for the past 4 years. God Bless you for all you do"

    "Both of my children attend Birney Elementary School. I feel Birney's teacher's are it's greatest asset My daughter has had the pleasure of having three of Birney's finest teachers, and under their instructions has grown leaps and bounds in terms of scholastic achievement. My son is in his first year at Birney and is already reading ( phonic reading book), when the school year began, he didn't even know all the letters of his alphabet. I feel so fortunate in that we are able to send our children to such a fine school."

    "My niece's and nephew attend Birney, as did I and my siglings. There was a rough patch a while back when the teacher seemed disinterested in helping my niece maximize her potential. That has not been the case the last 3 years. All the teachers I have dealt with are great. They have all been very encouraging and my nieces and nephew have all excelled. The principle is very open to hearing our concerns. Parent involvement is high. I have even noticed that some of my high school alumni are now teaching there. The fact that Birney was recognized as a distinguished school only helps to make us feel better about the instruction and care taken with each child."

    "It should be mentioned that Birney Elementary is both a California Distinguished School and a Title I Achievement school. All three of my sons have attended Birney Elementary over the past several years and my youngest son is currently attending Birney. While there have been many changes in that time, there are some things that have remained consistent. One is how the staff seems to be able to work as a team, across grade levels, to educate our kids. Some teachers team more than others, but the entire staff is involved and communicates with one another about their kids. Another constant is the warm and welcoming atmosphere of the school. Students and parents feel safe and accepted. It makes a difference when my son says wants to be at school."

    "I feel the staff is great! We do have some teachers that put more effort than others, but all our abilities put together have brought success to the majority of our students. You will get the parents who disagree, but they are mainly the ones who put the 100% on the teachers, without realizing that teachers can not do it all, especially when there is no support from home. Most successful students are the ones who have a trianlge working. Parent involvement is the key. They must take the time to look over homework and stay on top of what is going on in the schools. Parents: ask your child everyday, what did you learn? How was your day? etc."
