Welcome

The Briarwood School, who celebrated its 50th year in 2017, exists to change lives for the better.

If you are just learning about Briarwood, welcome! We are a school unlike any other. Many of the students who find their way to Briarwood experienced discouragement and defeat in other learning environments. At Briarwood, we strive to understand and honor each unique experience, embrace challenges and acknowledge strengths.

Briarwood is a school rooted in the belief that children who learn differently have the right to the best education available. We are a community determined to give students who have struggled with learning differences the strategies to make learning attainable, enjoyable and life-changing. 

Surrounded by highly trained and skilled faculty, led by an administrative team who sets high standards of excellence and who sees the value of ongoing professional development, the Briarwood student receives intense remediation that will give him the skills, strategies and tools to achieve success throughout their educational careers. While many of our students choose to stay at Briarwood through graduation, others may choose to make a successful transition to another school, and most continue on to college and have rewarding careers.

They are our future engineers, architects, teachers, doctors, lawyers, entrepreneurs, media specialists, writers, journalists, photographers, chefs.
