Our 4th child is starting Barker this fall, and we couldn't be more excited. This school is an excellent education experience. Students are encouraged and supported to be and do the best they can. The STEM curriculum is rigorous and the implementation of a credit system has been long overdue. Keep up the awesome work Barker!

A great school with great staff and students! Appreciate the focus on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) and opportunities for gifted/talented students. Our daughter has had a wonderful experience here and we highly recommend.

We're off to a bumpy start in 6th grade. Kids are treated like little prisoners. Can't use the bathroom. Must carry library books in a ziplock bag or get a detention from the reading teacher. Not allowed to go to locker and retrieve items. Must carry morning stuff all morning and afternoon stuff all afternoon....this includes your gym clothes and cannot carry in a backpack. No one seems to care that these 11 year olds are new at changing classes and may be unorganized for a few weeks. We're not impressed.

I am a close relative of a student at Barker Middle School and there have been nothing but problems since the beginning. Classes are undersupervised, most teachers disinterested in educating, and during one recent incident where a fight broke out among some students, the teacher simply ran from the classroom instead of trying to restore order. Private school for us next year and good riddance to Barker Middle School.
