My grandsons just began at Barrington following spring break. The principal Mr. Jason Fine gave us a tour and introduced the boys to their new teachers. Everyone was very friendly. The school has a reputation for being challenging academically. State test scores are excellent. After two weeks, my grandsons seem to like their new school and the friends they have made.

Barrington is an exceptional school by every measure. The teachers are involved and active, and the new principal and leadership are strong and committed. Families are active and involved and the school feels like a community. We love it at Barrington and could not imagine a better environment for our child.

Unless you do not mind your child being lost in the crowd, this is not a good school. We moved here for the school but are sorely disappointed. The leadership exhibited by the principal, Pam Yoder, may be largely to blame. Many of the teachers are second rate. This school is not at all what we expected.

The principal is busy and does not get out among the parents or students. Some of the teachers are not good. Some are excellent. The first grade teachers are among the worst we have experienced. We are looking at private schools for this very reason. We have a gifted student who has been left to his own devices all day at school. I would seriously reconsider this schollif at all possible.

Barrington is a wonderful school full of (mostly) passionate teachers. However, while the administration was quick to embrace my child who was quite bright and entered into the gifted program, my second child who needed a bit more attention in reading and writing was steered towards ADHD evaluation (which I politely declined). He's in high school now and is doing beautifully. One obvious weak spot is the lack of diversity in the school. The student population is 99% Caucasian. Other schools in the district have a better mix.

Great learning environment. Parent involvement welcome. Small community feel where everyone knows each other, usually by name.

My son attended this school for one year when we moved to UA in 2003. After being in a private school and being used to individual attention, our experience was horrible. The principal, Pam Yoder, is very cold, aloof, and uninvolved which sets the tone for the school. There are two programs, the contemporary and the informal, yet nobody can effectively articulate the difference. My son had adjustment issues and the administration was not at all concerned. The teacher was incapable, at best. We were very disappointed but many of our friends and neighbors love the school. We left after that year and went back to private.

This school has been a wonderful fit for my family. My son is an avid reader, and the learning environment at this school helps foster that. There is much parent involvement from volunteering in the classron to an arts and crafts alternative to outdoor recess. There are monthly presentations preformed by and for the students in the informal classrooms. It has been a great exerience for my oldest son and I look forward to sending my youngest when he's ready.
