Briggs Middle School is a great school. They help students no matter what. When a kid is going through a tough time the teachers are there to help them get through it, and if a student's grades are dropping the teachers care and helps the student get their grades back up. All of the teachers are passionate about their jobs and don't care whether their students are poor rich or in between, they treat everyone just the same. Teachers and staff respect each other and parents. The school is amazing and hope your kids can go here!
