Saint Barnabas Episcopal School 5

We have been part of the St B community for 9 years, and couldn't be happier with the education, the staff, and the overall development of our children - socially, spiritually, and intellectually. It is a safe environment for our children to grow, learn, and have some fun too!

St. Barnabas is an excellent school. St. Barnabas receives the highest achievement awards on an annual basis. St. Barnabas prepares elementary and middle school students for success in High school, College, and in life. Mr. Paul Garcia is an excellent Head of school. The Staff is excellent and all of them go above and beyond to teach our students the values needed to succeed in life. St. Barnabas teaches the principals of high moral values, high self-esteem, and the love of our Heavenly Father. St. Barnabas also offers scholarships to those who made need assistance and this has helped many parents both now and in the past. They also provide bus services to Orange City, DeBary,New Smyrna, Ormond, and Port Orange.

St. Barnabas offers a tremendous learning experience within a nurturing and caring environment. The teachers are dedicated and hard working and most have been at the school many years developing great chemistry throughout the elementary and upper grade levels.

St. Barnabas is an excellent elementary and middle school. The teachers are well-educated and very dedicated. Most have Masters degrees. They communicate constantly with parents. The campus is pretty and it is safe. The extra-curricular classes like Music, Art, and P.E. are really great. The older kids travel off-campus once a week for P.E. for six-week concentrations, including martial arts, bowling and tennis. The school also has bus transportation (Ormond, New Smyrna/Port Orange, and a couple other locations towards Sanford). The schools' test scores are in the upper 4% nationally!!! Needless to say, the students are very challenged--but in creative ways, so we really appreciate that! If you're looking for a beautiful campus with excellent teachers and bright, motivated kids, St. Barnabas might just be the place!

I'm grateful for so many of them! Miss Ashwood, Mrs. Holland, Mrs. Lafferty, Mrs. Griffiths, Mr. Holder, Mrs. Martin, Mrs. Hickman, Coach Tucker...I could easily name five more! These teachers really get to know their students and care deeply about them and their education.

Most, if not all, have Masters degrees. My kids have learned so much in a very stimulating environment.

Amount of homework: Too much

Posted April 18, 2016
- a parent
Not so much in the younger grades, but a lot of homework and studying in the upper grades...it is priming them for challenging programs in high school, but they don't get the sleep they often need. Some kids are more efficient than others, though.

Develops grit: Strongly agree

My kids spend a lot of time perfecting projects --I've never been at a school where kids work so hard. Just browse the Social Stidies Fair or the Science Fair at this school, and you will agree.

Develops empathy: Strongly agree

Really nice families seem to produce really nice kids! Also, the teachers have always been wonderful with my kids; understanding when they're sick, excited for them when they win an award, etc.

Develops honesty: Strongly agree

The teachers are very professional and hold the students to a very high standard, while being nurturing at the same time. There are many people to get the kids out of the cars and buses during drop off, all class doors are locked while the students are learning, there is a central intercom system--my kids feel completely safe at SBES.
