Its the best school I have ever worked with and they do AMAZING things with the hardest students.
I'm a substitute teacher at Barrett Ranch and it is my favorite school to visit. The staff is extremely friendly. The teachers bend over backwards to provide great support to the students to make sure they have every opportunity to achieve to their fullest potential.
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
Because the teachers are awesome. They continue to teach every year in a profession that they love despite receiving pink slips that threaten their jobs each year. Amazing dedication
This is the best school. It has a fantastic staff and wonderful environment for learning.
Because the entire staff cares about each student and is focused on their success.
The staff truly cares about the students that come from a variety of backgrounds. They supply sooo many successful interventions for students at all grade levels.
The entire staff cares about the well being and academic progress of every student!!
Barrett Ranch Teachers are the hardest working group of teachers I have ever met. They stop at nothing to provide the best for their students. They collaborate on everything and welcome the children every day.
At Barrett Ranch the Teachers & Staff work hard to meet the needs of all students. Students take pride in our school and they work hard to meet their goals.
This school has a staff of teachers who are incredibly dedicated to each other and their students.
Because it is the best place to work. Supportive staff and great kids! Wouldn't want to teach anywhere else!
Barrett Ranch cares about the kids. There are interventions for struggling kids, and enrichment for all! The staff works as a collaborative professional learning community and believes in the success of all their students. The parents, staff, teachers, and students all work together to make this school unique and amazing!
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.
