I truly like Charles W. Barrett Elementary School. My daughter is in 1st grade and likes attending school. She is eager to learn new things each day. My daughter has been blessed to have great teachers that see her full potential and challenge her to her ability. School has great programs as well. **We as parents must help teachers educate our children to a better future.**
The bullying is out of control and staff will push it under the rug for sake of their job or the fact the principal don't want to hear it, my children have endured so much that I'm pulling them out, you have teachers that half teach and they don't even check the homework for accuracy they just credit that it was brought in !!!! half the staff are parents so the reg parents are out numbered !!! my children are going Charter!!!!
My son has been going there for two yeaers now and and I find the teachers are great but the area is bad. I am taking my son out this year because of this. Other than that it is a preety good school overall, but a few bad seeds can always spoil the bunch.
Safety is joke. Bullying is tolerated and students are not punished for their behavior. All they do is promise to do better and nothing happens.
I love this school is ne of the best schools in L.A. Unified School District. Keep up the good work. Proud Mother of a honor roll student for 3yrs.
Charles W. Barrett is one of those exceptional schools that meet your expectations along with being a traditional single track. school. the academic program/curriculum is excellent.a lot of children's excel higher in their learning than is what is expected.some schools just tell you enough to meet basic, but C.W.B. teaches them that they can reach their expectation and even higher, My son's school have a Drill Team and Drum Squad that competes in competitions and Parades and they have a lot fun doing it! we have a lot of participation from our parents from school beautification to our monthly parent mtgs.they offer tutoring, after-school program and I just love their high achievers class where a child can learn to their full potential without holding back the rest of the class, or the teacher holding that child back because the other children may not be at that level of learning.
The Special Education Dept. is great. The school principal is the best. The two of them worked in conjuction with me to make my son and my self have a very pleasant experience.
Very good principal! Great school. Very friendly school environment.
There is alot of violence in the school. Children are aggressive and supervision is very poor. Children are bullied and no one seems to care. The principal has been there for a very long time, but there seems to be not much improvement. Luckily my child has had teachers who actually care about children's learning, but outside of the classroom, during recess or lunch, there are too many children for the number fo supervisors. I am now searching for a better learning environment for my child.
The teachers are doing an excellent job, but it's still up to the parents to continue teaching at home. I believe there's a big racial gap deviding our kids and our chidlren learn from example. If we set the wrong tone at home the child will carry it to school and treat others unfairly.
