This is a nurting and accepting environment for all students. They offer advanced placement, honors, general education, and special education programs that inspire and enlighten students of all abilities. The teachers and staff go above and beyond for the girls. I've had a great experience with my daughter at Barnabas so far. The curricula is challenging and integrates technology and real-world experiences to enhance my daughter's educational experience. I would definitely recommend this school to anyone searching for a great school in a fantastic location.
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 ridiculous what parents and student have to go through. The teachers there are unprofessional!
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.
My daughter attended this school. She was bullied by the teachers, administrators, and students. This is a very troubled school. The academics level is horrible, teachers do not have your daughter's best interest. Including saying inappropriate things and not making the girls feel encouraged about their school work. The math teacher fails the majority of the students, you'll see proof of this on parent/teacher night when you see the long line of parents. Check their school profile, and their SAT/ACT scores range. Once I transferred my daughter to another Catholic High School, (luckily right on time), she obtain first honors for 2 straight semesters, while in at St. Barnabas she was told she didn't have what it takes academically to move forward, and was on academic probation. If you value education, and a caring school environment for your daughter, this is not the school. Respectfully, Concerned Parent
graduated in '01...best 4 years of my life. im definitely not a rhodes scholar but i had a pleasant time, nice people and area, fun events, great girls and the teachers were all pretty nice. no complaints here.
As a former graduate of Saint Barnabas High School, I can safely say it was my home away from home for 4 years. I enjoyed, no loved, the family feeling at Saint Barnabas. You knew everyone. From my first day to graduation, everybody was warm and welcoming. Other than that aspect, the curriculm was very informative, the dedicated teachers made learning fun! It was near impossible to fall asleep. Teachers werent hated or feared. Thanks for the memories.
The staff and the girls who attend the school are very kind and friendly however the acedemic department is my only concern. There is no challenge and the students are not encourage to attain their fullest potietial. Under no means am I a genius but I found my self bored and unhappy with the curiculum. Its a safe place and located in a nice quiet neighborhood but I wanted to leave based on the lack of challenge.
