Briar Vista Elementary School in Druid Hills houses grades Pre-K through fifth. It is the only public Montessori school in the DeKalb County School System. The school offers multi-age Montessori classes and traditional single grade classrooms. Teachers and staff focus on the need of the individual child, which is one of the Montessori teaching approaches.
The school's vision is for "all children to learn, achieve, succeed, and function independently in society."
Most Briar Vista students go on to attend Shamrock Middle School and Druid Hills High School.
