The only good thing about this school is the private school structure. Which is in every private school but this one is ridiculous. This school has changed its principal so many times in just two years and more before that. My son went their for Prek and Kindergarten and between that time the school had three different principals. This school is all about money and they never do anything for the kids. Everything you have to pay for as if tuition and re-registration wasn't enough. Students hardly go on trips. This is the only school I know who doesn't have the little ones do Christmas or even Easter shoes for family. Not to mention the curriculum oh my gosh, the new principal doesn't believe in homework. Your paying money basically for a daycare. My son is way behind compared to public school kids and I have to teach him at home. I thought keeping him there due to familiarity was better for him but it's not. He won't be going back. Also the staff there aren't cut out for it, most of the staff got their jobs because their from the neighborhood, spouse of staff, or volunteer bc their child attends the school.

Handles bullying effectively: Strongly disagree


- a
My son has come home with many incidents in which the school did not inform any incident to me.


Supports LD students: Strongly disagree


- a
No type of tutoring services for children falling behind. If the kids don't get it then that's just it. Then their not prepared for the next grade

Develops character: Strongly disagree


- a
They teach none of that. It's not implemented by anyone there.

Teacher effectiveness: Disagree


- a
Teachers are only a branch off the Principal so they have no choice but to carry out his orders.


Amount of homework: Strongly disagree


- a
The principal doesn't believe in homework for the younger grades. The teacher has to sneak and give them activities.

I graduated in 2009 and attended Fordham Prep on a scholarship. I was not ready for high school at all. I did not talk properly and sounded like a fool with all those rich kids from Bronxville, Crestwood, Riverdale... Thankfully my freshman English teacher spent a lot of time helping me out, which is how I wrote this with such great grammar. In the end it all comes down to moving to a nicer neighborhood with better schools.

My son has been in St Barnaba's for 5 consecutive years, and even though I love that he can learn about the Catholic faith, I have to agree that this school is OVERCROWED and that's a concern.. I'm looking into move to a town with a good school district ( pelham or eastchester), so I can pull him out of St Barnabas .It's still a better option than the failling schools district in the Bronx and Yonkers, but if you can afford to pay a little extra, look for a better school dsitrict and put your child in a public school.

St. Barnabas Elementary School has a new administration, brought in during the summer of 2010, and quite frankly, the school is taking off! Enrollment is climing on a daily basis.
