Both my sons went to this school. This is an excellent school with Wonderful teachers. My son went to all honor classes in junior high this year he attended Clara Barton for 5 years. My younger son is in gate an will be attending all honor classes next year. I believe this is because of the teachers dedication to teaching our children. I always felt the teachers were great. The office staff and principals as well. I think this is a great school.

I went to this school up until 5th grade, and I don't care what anyone says, it was a great school. Many friendly teachers willing to help, lots of fun activities, lots of my friends loved it as well, the next school I transferred to was nothing like Barton, and I wish I could have spent those two years at Barton. Go Barton Bees! :D

My daughter went to this school last year and it seems the principal is more into using her power of the staff and students then education. Who says that you are late when you are 15 minutes early?? The staff definelty don't mirror their students.

My experience at the hands of "Teachers" at Clara Barton (and Anaheim schools in general)many years ago are why I home school my children today.

This use to be a very good school but over years the quality has gone down. The teachers and the principal are not passionate or caring to the students. The teachers do not comminicate with the parents as needed. There are no extracurricular activites. With all that said, so many parents decided to transfer out of this school for the current school year.

I think this school is great there are some of the best teacher and some that are just okay sometime I wish that there should be Art, music etc.

Posted March 4, 2008

The teachers are great and most go over and beyond to help the students. They could use more afterschool programs and more technology related courses so the students can keep up with this technology paced world.

I am not a fan of this school. It doesn't really have that much extracurricular activities, and the teachers are... not passionate.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted May 30, 2007

There are a few teachers who I love, and a few that are just alright. I wish they all had passion about their jobs. I wish more parents were involved. I would love to see programs for art, music, and sports, but the teachers are struggling with trying to meet the standards.

Clara Barton is a great school. I have had nothing but the best experience from the teachers and staff. The teachers are providing an excellent academic program, it is up to the parents to make sure that their child excels. I am very pleased with my sons teachers and their progress.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.
