My son attends David Barton and receives excellent scores on his MAP tests. My experience has been that the teachers are exceptional and do a great job preparing students for these exams. Parents need to remember that teaching children is a joint effort between them, the teacher and the student. All the weight cannot fall upon the teachers' shoulders. The teachers provide the tools students need. Parents need to reinforce the lessons the schools teach.
As a parent of two children that have gone through this school I am very pleased with the faculty and staff at David Barton. My children have done very well here and get the challenge they need to stay interested in their studies.
