The principal at this school is nice, but my teacher is very uncaring. She yelled at me for reading a book before the rest of the class. I was also yelled at for not participating in the pledge, due to my beliefs. In my class, the teacher makes me feel like just another bug in the room. I have never had a teacher like this. Before coming to Clara Barton, I loved school. Now, I behave and do what I am told, but while I am here I am miserable.

The school's great rating rely's on the high SES status of its student population, but there is little to rave about in regards to the teaching at Barton. While many surrounding schools have embraced project based learning and have technology to help support students at different levels, Barton seems to be 20 years behind the times. My daughter's teacher seemed downright annoyed that I wanted to be involved in helping her improve and often would not answer my emails or respond to letters about how she was doing in class. The teacher didn't show up for scheduled meetings and often would say she would do one thing and it would never happen. While Barton's principal is very willing to work with parents, I don't believe there is much he can do about very poor teachers.

I'm very disappointed in Clara Barton special needs class. Since day 1. I am not happy with the school, teachers, I have complained to clara barton school, special ed dept. I have alot to say! Other parents agree this is not the right school for special needs children (kinder) coming from the corona/norco school district " my daughter learned more in the rocket program". Almost end of the school year finally starting the process to put my daughter in another school... very frustrating, upsetting in this school.

"CALIFORNIA DISTINGUISHED SCHOOL" that says it all! I have a daughter that attended CLARA BARTON from Kinder to 6th grade and she has done very very well during her years here. She has gained the the academic knowledge necessary to carry over to middle school and beyond! She is currently an 8th grader at Ramirez Intermediate and has achieved High Honor Roll. I also have a 9 year old daughter whom is currently in 4th grade at Clara Barton and she as well has achieved High Honor Roll. Great School!

The school is pretty nice but it seems as though the adults are ready to yell and cite a student for the dumbest things. My son got yelled at for wetting his hair. He is a student with a 3.9 GPA and his teacher loves him. The lunch duty supervisors are too quick tempered. They are children people!

This year has been horrible! With the addition of 400 new students and hardly any additional hired adults, the education here is going to suffer. The teachers are great, but special needs children are coming to lower grades to learn without help. This is a disservice to the children in the class and the children who would benefit from extra help. The kid zone is filled with unruly children. I am very sad this year to be looking for another school so that I can just feel safe for my child. I had higher expectations for eastvale..... Disappointed eastvale mommy

I am so happy the my kids are apart of the Clara Barton family. Mrs. Tanny is the best Kindergarten teacher ever. You can tell that she loves teaching and really cares about the kids learning. The way she interacts with the kids is amazing. The parent involvement at Barton is outstanding. The office staff is fairly friendly but I think sometime when they overwhelmed they can be very short with you. I love Clara Barton.

I'm disappointed in Clara Barton for their impersonal and inefficient special needs program. After a great experience with the ROCKET program in the Corona-Norco School district, I'm disappointed with their K-12 education system and the way special needs students are educated and cared for by the school. Speech therapy in particular, is lacking in quality and level of attention.

Clara Barton Elementary has the best administration and staff in the world! Ask any student, even new kindergarteners, the school motto and they will confidently respond, 'I believe in myself, I believe in my future, my future begins today!' I could go on and on, but this school, the staff and students are very special and I am so glad that my child attends Barton. I could not ask for more.

Clara Barton is a great school, my daughters loved their school, teachers and classmates. However, lately I found that the school did not encourage the student to read A.R. as much as they have. Over the years I have learned that A.R. is a very good tool beside the school activities. Once my daughter developed the habit of reading regularly, every subject to them was effort less. But recently I found that it is a shame when they have this wonderful A.R. software and hardware but not using it as much as they have. It is a kind of waste, especially other school might not have the buget to get it. I wish they can emphasise more.

Great school & staff! My daughter reads 3 grade levels above her own, and will be testing for Gate. As far as being challenged, it depends on the teachers. She's in 3rd grade and 3 out 4 teachers have been awesome! Especially Mrs. Tanny! PTA -- I'm not too pleased with. They ask for parent participation, yet want to do it all themselves and they will only call if they know and like you. Clickish...

My children have been attending since Kindergarten. Love the teachers, and other administrative staff. I agree they need to challeng students more my child is very dvance and they finally are pullin him out to go to more advance subjects because he is so board. Supervision is sometimes and issue on the playground but, over all pretty good. PTA is very clickish needs some change!!!!

I agree that I do not think my child is getting challenged. She has skipped a grade, reads 2 grades above her level and gets O+ on almost everything. You would think the teacher would provide more challenging homework or advice the parents or something. We are teaching our child outside of school to keep her stimulated. It seems like they teach to the lowest level of the class. Pretty dissapointed in the academics.

Kindergarten teachers are exceptional, especially Mrs. Tanny. My daughter learned far more than the basics under her instruction. 1st grade, I did not feel she was being challenged enough, given she was already reading at 4th grade level she was receiving O++ on almost everything. Now in 2nd grade I feel as if she is being challenged even less. The vocabulary words are too easy; some are from the Kindergarten site word list?! API scores seem to have fallen from last year. I love the school, staff & PTA, but I'm a little concerned about the scores.

This school provides a high quality education with a nice mixture of academics and extra curricular activities. Academic issues are identified early and are handled in a very professional manner. The principal is bright and very parent-friendly, he understands that school is not only about academics, but also about building interpersonal relationships. There is a nice mixture of ethnic groups and they seem to all get along well. Parental involvement is always at the top of the list, I really enjoy the school sponsored social events and I appreciate that the school is part of the community and not just in the community. This is an excellent school with a challenging academic program and high level extra curriculum activities.

There are a couple of teachers who have been 'putting in time'and should have been made to retire several years ago. It would be nice to have more after school activities but with the area expanding so rapidly it would difficult to establish a first-rate program with so many boundary line changes.

Overall I'm very happy with the school and its teachers. However, I am very dissapointed in the accelerated reader program. I have a 4th grade student who has been reading at 6th grade level for 1 1/2 years. As a result, she has read every book in her interest and maturity level. All that is left is either too mature for her or not of her interest. So we are at a standstill, not earning points and her not enjoying her reading time. Also having to 'find' books at other libraries, you have to thumb thru a huge 3 ring binder and try to find a book. How dissapointing for her to find a book of interest and have it not be on the list.

This school has been very good to us. Parents seem to be very involved. This school provides the academics necessary. I have one child who is gifted and was easily bored with the academics provided... however my other children are very average in academics and have progressed very well with the provided lessons. The principal runs an orderly school which helps to keep it under control. I don't see a buzz of excitement surrounding him...but the basics get accomplished.

Strict behavior code, but supervision is somewhat lacking. Emphasis on silly dress-up days. No school uniforms at this school. Classes are a mix of advanced and slow students. A smart and sensitive child will suffer. Teachers seem generally competent, but gifted teachers are few.
