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.
