Bullying is encouraged at this school. The principal is useless. Absolutely does nothing to keep students in line. I have talked to many parents and they say there kids have received detentions for defending themselves against bullies attacking them.

I went there as a kid in the mid 90's, so I am in my 30's now. I remember this place to be overcrowded. I had several classes in makeshift trailer units that were set up behind the school. I remember it to be a place where the staff all but encouraged bullying and considered it a right of passage for pubescent young teenagers. In retrospect I realize that a lot of the kids who went there came from very low class backgrounds, and they frequently acted as such. I know people who work at the school district that report 40% of the kids are on government sponsored lunches in the area. Thankfully my parents had enough sense to pull me out of Francis Howell for high school. Although I am considered gifted I needed a solid year of tutoring in math when I arrived in St. Charles school district to be considered in alignment with my peers. The only good thing I can say about the school is that the experience is over. I wound up making something of my life, but no thanks to Francis Howell.

I am a student at Barnwell Middle School. I am very unhappy with the schooling. I'm in eighth grade and the science teachers are absolutely horrible. The science teacher I have gets very confused with what shes teaching. I am here to learn, not to deal with your problems. The other science teacher is terrible. He tells students they are dumb, and will go no where. He also cusses in class and spends most of classtime lecturing students. A lot of bullying goes on, and when you tell the principals or counselors, they do absolutely nothing. The Normandy school situation has made this school even worse. So many distractions in class, drugs being brought to school, and fights. Save your student and don't make them go to this horrible school.

From the eighth grade perspective, everything is terrible. Most of the teachers don't know what they're doing and they keep losing our papers and blaming it on the students. The systems portrayed in some classes is pathetic and should not be graded on. I was personally marked off on a test because I didn't staple the test correctly. Stapling does not show how academically inclined I am, only how I decide to put papers together. Why does that count as a grade? Some other classes enforce taking notes straight from the textbook and writing practically the entire section from the book. What's being taught there? Nothing! Only how to write faster, which is not an academic improvement. I thought school was suppose to be a place to learn important core subjects, not a place to feel disrespected and unjustly treated.

This is an amazing school. The teachers are really concerned about their students learning. I have seen much growth in my child's learning since he's been attending this school.

This is the worst Francis Howell middle school. The principals are unmotivated and don't care about the students. While it may just be the age, the students were immature and disrespectful. The school did have several great teachers, but they have all left and none of the replacements have been anything to remark about. I would not send your child here.

The administration has the attitude of doing what it takes to help kids be successful. They offer challenge classes and lots of after school activities that appeal to a variety of kids.

My three children have all went through Barnwell the past 8 years. This past few have been the best. The staff is great, and the principals do a great job keeping everyone informed. As a parent I feel comfortable coming into the school and my child comes home excited about her day. Barnwell does a great job of promoting school spirit. All the students and staff are proud to be a 'Barnwell Bulldog'
