As a recent graduate from Bartlett High School, it is saddening to see awful teachers remaining on staff & good teachers removed for lack of seniority. That aside, the school has taken on to treating students as numbers and results rather than youth to be educated. All effort is focused toward making sure kids are in class on time, not keeping tabs where tabs should be kept. I'm disappointed in the school's progress.
Bartlett High School is a great school when it comes to visual arts but the students are awfully mean and the bathrooms are discusting. I understand that its partcially the students fault but its also the staffs fault. During my time at BHS I was picked on right in front of a teacher and the teacher did nothing about it. Also the bathrooms, they get so dirty because the students dont take care of them but it is the janitorial staffs job to keep the school clean! Like I said before BHS can be a gret school for somethings but not all.
They gave my daughter a great education and were very supportive of her when some emotional problems errupted - even though she was a new student at the time, they supported her and helped her through a rough patch. Not just one teacher, but almost every single faculty member reached out to support her.
Bartlett has a awsome group of teachers. I have a son in Bartlett as a senior and he has had a great group of teachers the whole way through. Plus this school has brought my son out of his shell so much so that he plays sports and is in many groups at school. I have had nothing but a above average experience at this school.
This school is terrible. The teachers and Deans are complete amateurs, and have no idea how to run the school. Kids are constantly getting in fights, and I feel very unsafe. Also the fact that there are no metal detectors is very unsatisfactory for me. As a student, I must say, the punishments given out are harsh, even if someone blames you for something you did not do, you get in trouble. The staff of the school do not look into problems as they should, and it seems as if they are trying to get things done and over with, inflicting punishments, and moving onto the next disturbance instead of thoroughly looking at each problem. The school is disorderly and frankly does not care about the attendance of students. Most parents are never even notified of absences, truancies, or tardies.
I am very disappointed in Bartlett High School. They do not keep track of their students and the school does not hold itself accountable. I have had direct contact with deans, counselors, and teachers and find them 'put out' if you don't agree with them. The school needs to enforce attendance policies and hold students accountable under their watch and stop blowing off truency.
Very poor communication between the school and parents. Even though my daughter was tady and truant I was never notified. Very poor communication from school adminstrators. Some could not answer the simplest questions such as how many hours to graduate. Teachers and administrators take an attitude of not caring because there's too many students. They just want to move the students through the school. Best of off moving out of Bartlett and going West or East. Wheaton or St Charles
