Barret is a great school and i love it. Sure there are some teachers who the students aren't very fond of but it's going to be the same at any other school. No one can complain about the wonderful school barret!
Barret is a bad school at which the teachers do not care for any of the student and are extremly rude!! no child should have to be held under such surcomestances! Barrets teachers should score a -10!!!! i do not recomnd this school!
Barret TMS is way 2 strict they make u follow the rules. And even if u hav gum and get cuat they take it to far. And Give u a Referal and detention. There way 2 strict. Youll get a referoll 4 having ur sahirt untucked and it could be an accident and u get a referal with out verby warning. Its not fair. Barrets not wat it seems.
If you plan to go to Barret then make sure you're prepared. The teachers are strict and disipline to them is a must. even so this is a great school to go to. It is very clean and modern ther are 2 computer labs and at least 2 computers in each room. Be prepared for a lot of work.
I'm a current Barret TMS student, and I have been attending the school for 2 yrs now. I'm presently in the 8th grade. Barret is an intricately structured school, and the teachers don't hesitate to discipline mis-behaving students. If your child wishes to attend this school, make sure he or she is prepared for a heavy workload!
I spent 3 years of my life attending Barret, and when I graduated I was sad to say goodbye to a few of my wonderful teachers, but there was a lot of controversy in the last few years, including restrictions on purses and jewlery.
When people look at our school they say were a bunch of well behaved and smart childen which is sometimes true .At Barret they are strict on the wrong things.In our school some of the teachers really care but on the other hand some teachers dont put enough effort in teaching the students that really need help.So just make sure your child is really prepared for Barret
You have to know what you're getting into when you choose Barret. It's a very competitive school so there's not a lot of room for the nurture and sincere concern for the student that is struggling academically. The administration would rather you remove the student than to work with them. Greathouse Shryock Elem. feeds into Barret so I suggest any parent considering the traditional program read those reviews also. They have strong test scores and ratings because they don't tolerate any student that may jeopardize that. Carefully consider all your choices for middle schools. If your child is an expressive, outgoing individual who likes to march to their own beat do not choose Barret. You will save yourself a lot of frustration. I regret my choice because my son loved school until now. It's a good fit for some, but not most.
Barret is awesome we are not too strict! We have a great student body, the best teachers, and the best scores in the state! What more could you ask for? I am a proud student of Barret.
I love Barret it is the best school I have ever been to.The teachers are nice the students,principal,councilers,even the lunch ladies are funny and nice!I give this school a 5! And for all of you that think it is to strict it is not!
I think Barret is not too strict. They have guidelines, and the kids know the rules. I appreciate the 'strictness' and the fact they are challenging my son. Teachers are caring, adminstration is top notch. Consistently this school has outstanding test scores. More middle schools schould be like this.
Too strict. You can even wear one bracelet on each arm.Out of 1 ten I give this school a 2.
