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
This is the first year my kids are going there. The only complaint i have is that there is no after school activity care that we working parents can use. I dont mind paying, but all the after school care is for low income or section 8 familys. I feel that we all could use help. The other complaint is my sons first grade class has 34 kids no aides. if the state mandates how many kids you can take in as a daycare, they should apply the same rules to our schools.
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.
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.
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.
