I agree with the former student. This school is a disgrace. The principal is completely out of touch with the student base, although he will tell you he's right on top of things. Don't even think of sending your child here unless they are AP level - they just don't care about the other kids; only their ratings and standings.

I am a parent of three JBHS students and we have a vibrant, engaged learning community, teachers and administrators who care and places where all students can achieve.

Joel Barlow is a wonderful HS that has a spectrum of classes to offer. The kids are nice and come from mostly affluent backgrounds. Most students are college bound. There are several sports offered. Perhaps the biggest need would be more spirit in the school. The cheerleaders are good and getting much better with their competitive cheer programs. Barlow needs a marching band program to further boost morale at pep rallies and games. This HS prepares kids well for college.

Joel Barlow hosts an advanced and broad curriculum that can really accommodate every student. Academics are relatively rigorous in comparison to nearby schools but not unmanageable. The sport program is a bit lacking due to low school spirit but still has great coaches and moderate competitive success. Less a few, kids are generally pretty nice. Disagreeing with former reviews, the teachers range from mediocre to superb and communication is easy so long as you are proactive.

An amazing school. Barlow prepared my children wonderfully for college in a safe and caring environment. The increase in AP courses in recent years hs beefed up academics considerably.
