My children attend this school and I have been nothing but impressed with the principal, teachers and staff. There is no cookie cutter approach, they view every student as an individual. They seek out the best way to reach each student. It is obvious they care about their students. The principal is a real leader and a great role model for teachers, staff and students. My children are very happy there and receiving an outstanding education.

I am so impressed with this elementary school. The curriculum is challenging enough that I feel my children are getting a top notch education. There seems to be a great deal of parent involvement in this school and the school offers quite a few events to help foster a sense of community. Excellent public school.

I have enjoyed my children attending this school. When the student to teacher ratio gets high the principal adjust the classroom size for the following year. One thing I think great, the teacher do not get a chance to get stagnate, I have seen teacher move from one grade to the next. I think this is great.

I recently moved in January and my children went from a private school to Barrington. I was shocked with the difference in the curriculum, my children were learning and doing more than they were at the private school that I paid so much for them to attend! I am very impressed with Barrington and glad they attend this school.

I have been pleased with the school after sending my two children, who both attended private school in the past. The parent involvement is great and the teachers seem to genuinely care about the students.

My two sons attend this school and I'm very pleased. The principal is very good and you can really see that she cares for each student.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Missouri used the Missouri Assessment Program (MAP) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in math and communication arts, and in grades 5 and 8 in science. The MAP is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Missouri. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test.
