All schools on GreatSchools begin with BASIC completeness, which includes important information like contact details and test scores. It’s up to the school community to take the next steps. As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families by writing a review or answering a few questions about what the school offers. As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

The completeness meter moves to INTERMEDIATE, then ADVANCED, and finally HONOR ROLL as you complete the following: 10 or more reviews, at least 1 photo, and 9 program questions parents find helpful.

When we moved to Champaign several years ago, we asked around a lot of people, and the name Barkstall came up highly recommended over and over. We moved next to the school and enrolled our son to Barkstall. We were not disappointed. My son, who is rather shy, quickly made friends, and the teacher made great efforts to make him feel at home. We were very pleased with his growth in math, reading, and writing throughout the year. His growth both academically and socially were very noticeable. This is a great school.

We have three children at Barkstall. The teachers are AMAZING. They are incredibly hardworking and involved with the students and parents. The office staff is top notch and the new principal is professional AND accessible. My kids don't like the uniforms, but they sure make the mornings run more smoothly around here. :)

Overall a great school to send your child to. My only complaint is the time it takes them to resolve any given situations. In the end they are however resolved. Specifically when speaking about IEP issues.

Terrific atmosphere for learning. Emphasis on the arts is great. Love having uniforms (relaxed and easy to follow).

I transfered my child here this semester from Garden Hill, and What a difference!!! The teachers and staff are great and the atmosphere is amazing. The only drawback is the parents are very stuck up. At events they will stand in front of small children to be first in line.

Emphasis on the arts is fabulous! All students, regardless of race or socioeconomics, are treated with respect and empowered to achieve their best.
