My daughter will be starting at Barnstable in September. While our home district refused to test her, the folks at Barnstable couldn't believe she didn't have an ed plan and asked me if they could do an evaluation! The future is looking brighter already.
Because of Barnstable's personal attention and nurturing environment, my son has thrived. He was not excelling academically or socially, so we transfered him from the public school system during 8th grade. He is now a senior and doing extremely well. Not only has he competed on some of Barnstable's athletic teams, but he is involved in many social activities. He has applied to six colleges and has been accepted to all. We have many options for his future and we are grateful for all that Barnstable has done for our son!!
This school was highly recommended to me for my daughter; all sources stated a wonderful environment in which she could concentrate and be challenged with her academics. Now I find that she is bored with the school and her highschool social studies textbook is the same she was taught with in the fourth grade. Most if not all of the students are far behind their age group in level of IQ and many have distracting disorders which prevent her from focusing on her schoolwork. The food served at lunches is unhealthy and the price asked to attend the school is ridiculous because it doesn't include fees for lunches or bussing (the fee for which is extremely high.)
I cannot speak highly enough about Barnstable. I belive that this environment has truly saved my son. He is able to excel in all academic aspects in a small, nurturing environment.
I have been very satisfied with the level of education and support for my daughter- I can highly recommend this school- if I could make any suggestions it would be to offer more extracurricular activities for the middle school.
Some of the teachers were good and some where bad. There was one amazing teacher named Mrs. Deigan. She was definatly the best teacher i have ever seen.
My son benefits from the supportive, nurturing environment at Barnstable Academy where his accommodations are provided with understanding and respect for his learning differences.
My daughter entered school with a minor learning disability and thanks to the interest and caring of the teachers, she improved her self-esteem and even went on to college. Since then, she earned her masters degree and is currently teaching in a middle school.
I am a former student from Barnstable Academy. Barnstable provided me with the opportunity and the right environment for me to succeed academically, athletically, and socially. I am now pursuing a masters degree in Education and hope to be teaching students with similar needs.
I really enjoyed my years at Barnstable Academy. The teachers were great, although I did feel some of them could have been better. It's really a nice place to go.
