Profile Completeness

INTERMEDIATE

Want to improve this school’s profile? You can!

All schools on GreatSchools begin with BASIC completeness, which includes important information like contact details and test scores. It’s up to the school community to take the next steps. As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families by writing a review or answering a few questions about what the school offers. As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

The completeness meter moves to INTERMEDIATE, then ADVANCED, and finally HONOR ROLL as you complete the following: 10 or more reviews, at least 1 photo, and 9 program questions parents find helpful.

I agree with the other post about the internet page. It's nice to see what's going on and be able to check it daily. I wish the other schools did a good job with this like BJHS.

I am pleased with the new Principal, and I'm glad he is supporting the good things some of the teachers do. I really like that the teachers contact me for good things as well as for bad. I also like the web page. I have a child at the HS and they don't put the buletin on the internet, or stay up to date like the jr high does.

Basically, I agree with the other two parents. I have other questionable concerns about the staff at that school, which I plan to address at a meeting coming up soon. I went to talk to the principal about my concerns, and of course they (principal or assist principal) were not available. So sad, I am not pleased!

I think these two parents need to visit the school and see the changes made. I agree that some teachers feel the need to yell but this is not the norm. The merge had nothing to do with raising test scores as one indicates. Maybe this parent needs to do some homework as to why the merge.

I think that since the 2 schools merged, the teachers and staff worse than before. As long as they have a warm body in the seat everyday so the school gets their money, thats all that matters.

There is a reassignment of grade levels in our community right now, where all 8th graders in the city of Barstow will be forced to attend Kennedy Middle School. My daughter is affected by this, and has had to test at this school. The school is gated and guarded like a prison. The staff was curt and somewhat impolite. The children were loud and unruly and the teachers were screaming at them to get in line. Outside. Inside, the library where my daughter was testing was just slightly more under control. She was more than surprised at how boisterous this atmosphere was and didn't approve. This move is being forced because this school can't make the grade according to federal guidelines and needs the students from my daughter's school to raise their average. Is this fair? Why should my daughter or yours be forced into the worst school in town?
