My son likes going to this school and likes his teacher. For me this is something that matters the most. In addition to that here are some thing that I like about the school: patient and encouraging teachers, activities that are education and fun at the same time, great teacher-parent communication, great educational goals they set in class, strict behavior rules. Yes, I do like when there are some strict behavior rules in classes. First, it is essential for successful learning; second, it is how kids learn to be responsible.

my girls have attended this school for two years now and has made a tremendous change in their work habits and the fundamentals that are taught are great. I would highly recommend this school in the antelope area.

Teachers are strict and unfair. Children can't run around without being benched or get detention. If your child has problems they will not help, only make your child miserable.

The teachers at Barrett Ranch go above and beyond to make sure the kids have a well rounded education to include the arts. Most of the teachers put in more off-duty hours than a lot of emergency responders. The difference is that the teachers do not get paid for their extra hours.

Barrett Ranch Elementary has an amazing group of teachers who not only work collaboratively with each other, but with parents and students as well. The teachers are amazingly dedicated and most of them devote (unpaid) time to after school clubs and activities to promote the arts and other events for the students and families. Barrett Ranch is a wonderful school with wonderful people!

I absolutely love Barrett Ranch for both of my boys. The principal is very proffessional and personable. She is easy to approach. The teachers are always happy and the morale is high with students and the staff. Barrett Ranch celebrates spirit day and many many kids participate in wearing school colors and showing their pride. I am very happy with the high caliber of education my two boys receive there.

My oldest son has attended Barrett Ranch for the past three years and has enjoyed his time there. His teachers have been tremendous and the faculty are equally impressive. My wife and I feel very fortunate to have our son attending a school in Dry Creek and specifically Barrett Ranch Elementary!

My daughter Jennifer teaches at Barrett Ranch and I occassionally help in her classroom. The school has teachers and staff who truly care about students and the school is a safe place for students to feel comfortable to take risks and to expand their education. The custodial staff does an outstanding job of keeping the campus immaculate

I love this school! My daughter is in Kindergarten and the teachers are amazing! The school has wonderful Movie Nights, picnics, and a Holiday Workshop for free that you can bring the whole family to! Very community oriented. There's a ton of positive reinforcement and my daughter just can't wait to get to school. She's only two-thirds the way through kindergarten and she can read, write stories, do math, knows about polar bears, penguins, the life cycle of plants, and the history of George Washington and Abraham Lincoln. They have a full kitchen and get to bake in class, which means learning about fractions, etc. Amazing teachers and leadership at this school!!!

This is a wonderful school. My daughter has been there since 1st grade she is now a 3rd grader. She started off slow reader and now she is up to par with the rest of her class and most recently gotten the best reportcard ever. Teachers are great communicators and email you and call. They are all very caring.

This school is the an amazing place for student learning. The entire staff works together to make sure that no kids fall through the cracks. My children's teachers have been kind-hearted, knowledgable and really worked with them to make sure they were successful. I can't recommend this school enough.

I agree with the parent who states it is not a prison. Barrett Ranch is a great school to have your children in. The teachers care about the education of each individual child. The children seem to love all the teachers even the ones who are not their direct teacher. My daughter was in kindergarten last year and will be returning to 1st grade, she cannot wait to go back to school to see her teacher and friends. Barrett Ranch is a good environment to learn.

The school is awesome. I have 3 children that go here. Two have adhd and have failed at all the other schools they have been to. The teachers and the staff have made sure that my two were going to succeed and they have.

TRUST ME, Barrett Ranch is not run like a prison! Although it is a newer school, the teachers are top notch, many of which have transferred from other schools just for the opportunity to work at Barrett. If a parent feels that being at Barrett is like being at a prison, then their child is probably one that needs frequent discipline for behavior problems. From my experience and other parents I have talked to, we feel the teachers and principal are excellent, and always strive to do what is best for the students. As for worksheet after worksheet, I don't understand where that parent is coming from. Our children were singing academic songs and creating maps and pictures to make learning connections, having a great time along the way. Perhaps the parent who said the school was like a prison, accidently wrote about the wrong school or was just upset.

This schol is run like a prison. The children can't run or play or talk or practically breathe. They stand in line for much too long and are afraid that if they step on the grass they will be given detention. and.. yes they give detention to kindergardeners what are they thinkings? Learning? all they did was push worksheet after worksheet at them without giving any kind of enthusiasm for learning. sad school.
