Union SchoolsIn the fall of 1970, classes started at Briarglen Elementary, making Briarglen the oldest of the elementary schools in the district. It was named after the housing addition in which it was built. Today, Briarglen serves about 600 students in pre-Kindergarten through fifth grade in traditional and looping classrooms.

Working with and through our community of patrons, area businesses, central office administration and our PTA, Briarglen is proud to offer a well-balanced curriculum and activities for students and their families.

Briarglen will continue to evaluate our school program to improve our instructional methods and assessment procedures. Briarglen welcomes the involvement of our community and is proud of its ownership of our school.
