Do not send your child to this school! Saint Barnabas is a horrible school. It's all about the money and not the students. Teachers are disrespectful and bullies ! Also, the staff favorites those who donate money to the school. It's absolutely... more

The Dean at this school is kind, understanding and very professional. He handled my situation with integrity.

Teacher effectiveness: Very ineffective

They speak very inappropriate to the girls, and show frustration more than encouragement. As an educator it is important that you are a role model, because girls at this age (teens) are very impressionable.

About this school

Saint Barnabas High School is an all-girls' high school that borders the Woodlawn section of the Bronx and the southeastern section of the City of Yonkers. The school was founded in 1924, and has been at its current location since 1959 (the high school used the top floor of the elementary school across the street). At its inception, the school was founded and staffed by the Sisters of Charity. Each year, the St. Barnabas High School Music Department puts on an exciting Music Awards Show, similar to the Grammy Awards. At St. Barnabas, music students write and record their own songs (since 2004, over 150 songs have been recorded and placed online). The songs are placed into categories (like Best Rock Song, Producer of the Year, Best New Artist and Best Group Song) and the school votes to determine the winners. The show draws hundreds of people, local press and is a major fundraiser for the school. The school also has a great Film Department, which uses cutting-edge technology and innovation to produce their own films. St. Barnabas High School is a leader amongst Bronx Catholic high schools with their advanced Film and Video Production Curriculum. Recently, the Choir has taken off at SBHS! Come and join the choir as it takes off in competitions and feature performances. Music, Film and all other clubs are open to all students. Join one today!
