I want like to say thank you to each and every person because I believe it takes a whole team working together to get the job done. I believe if you have a great leader you have greater followers. I would like to send a special shout out to Ms. Spann, and Ms. Jackson. Thanks!
This school put the kids concerns first. Academics are very important but while giving them all of those things I find they also deal with each child's social and communications skills. If I had to rate Barclay I would give them a 99.9.
I have two grandchildren at Barclay and each time I go there the staff knows where my grandchildren are. They care about the children as if they were their own. They make sure each child's needs are meet in every area. Most important the staff have patience, and they want every child to succeed. I have been apart of the Barclay family for over fifteen years and I'm watch them grow and improve in every area from academics, social skills and after school programs. I give Barclay a 99.9.
My son just graduaded from Barclay and since first grade we were treated like family. All the teachers and staff had a real interest in his improvement and well being. We came from another country and Barclay was one of the schools with an ESL program, taught by Mr Alex, who made my son's transition to English very easy. They have a free after school program, organized by Child First, that enriched his school experience greatly. Now with the 29th Street Community Center attached to the building they have even more options, like Robotics and violin lessons. The teachers sent me e-mails and phone calls about my sons progress in class, and i've never seen such dedication. Because of all that, my son is going to Baltimore Polytechnic Institute and i couldn't be more grateful !
I am very impressed with the school and my daughters teacher, Ms. Mundie. She tells me whenever anything is going on with my daughter, and works hard to make sure that she is learning not just at school but also at home. They get recess every day, and have art and computer class ever week as well. The classroom feels so friendly and the kids are all very well behaved (for 4 year olds). My daughter loves her school and her class, and I do too!
