Brier Creek Elementary

Brier Creek Elementary is a school located in North Raleigh that serves grades K through 5. Brier Creek Elementary is a year-round school and students are divided into four groups called tracks. Each track has its own calendar. In a year-round school, the traditional 180-day school year is divided into nine-week quarters with a three week break at the end of each quarter. Students are in school the same number of days as in traditional schools; the only difference is that the days are redistributed throughout the year. Schedules are staggered so that, at any given time, three tracks are in school and one is on break. Year-round schools offer a traditional curriculum and some people believe that year-round schools provide: 1) A more continuous learning process, 2) Less review time is needed in the Fall since there is no long summer break, and 3) Students and teachers get re-energized during their regular breaks.
