Our School

  • 2014 National Blue Ribbon School

    Welcome to Briarcliff Elementary! Briarcliff Elementary is a traditional school serving approximately 560 students Pre-k- 5th Grade.  We opened our doors in 1967 and continue to be a hub of learning within the community.

    Our central focus is to provide a challenging academic program centered on student learning. Teachers work together to collaborate helping all children learn.

    Briarcliff Elementary values the relationships with our students, parents, and our community.  We have an active and engaged PTA that supports our staff and students. Each year the PTA funds our Cultural Arts program that includes artists such as a writer in residence, performances, story telling, and an artist in residence. The PTA also hosts family spirit nights, Fall Festival, and Spring Fling.

    In addition to our PTA, we partner with the Cary Rotary, Cary Family YMCA- Y-Learning, and other community partners to support our students.
