My daughter has been at Barnard since she was in Pre-K. Ms. Coronius knew how to teach to the different levels in her classroom. For kindergarden she had Ms. Jimenez. What a gem! Great communicator, addressed all levels in her classroom. My daughter is currently in 1st grade and I can honestly say it has been a huge waste of time for her. She has had to deal with bullying and is bored. The teacher does not communicate with parents, the school does not have shows (holiday), special occasions. I am considering St. Paul or other private schools for 2nd grade.
My son has just started school at Barnard and im extremely happy with his teachers. He has learned many new things in the short period that he has been there. I cant wait to see what else he learns during the rest of the school year. He has never been to a daycare nor a babysitter so I thought it would be tough for him to adjust but his teachers are wonderful and made him feel comfortable.
