WOW! We moved to this district from an IB school. The attention my daughter has received here has been OUTSTANDING. I know schools today teach to testing but not here! My daughter has been blessed with a wonderful educator who steps out of the box, doing pushups and sit ups with an ADHD boy in the class to help him concentrate, helping each and every students as if they are the only student in the class, without fail. She is fair, fun and RESPECTS her duties to the school and the class. I was not expecting much but this school is night and day different and miles ahead of the district in SW Missouri we just left. 5 STARS!!!! Wonderful, school, wonderful educators!

My children have been attending Barry School for 6 years now and I've been very pleased each year with the teachers and activities provided for the children. Also, the classes are not overcrowded with the average class having about 20 kids. Keep up the good work!

Wow! Barry School has been more than we expected. The staff is wonderful and extremely helpful. It is hard to find a small school atmosphere in a city. You can tell this staff cares and that the parent involvement is there! Yeah Platte County for bucking the norm!

Barry is a wonderful school! The teachers are great, the staff is wonderful and the overall enviornment has been great for my children. We are definitely going to ensure that our children stay in PCR-iii schools for their career! And the level of involvement by the parents is great as well. There are always a lot of parents involved, whether it is field trips, PTA, after-school activities etc.

In 2013-2014 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.
