My children attend this school and it has come along way but the changes that have been made to the school are good but the school has no control. They are always switching principles and they have no discipline. the school has went downhill fast and i an trying to get my children out of there i dont recommend this school at all

Barry School has come a long way from the 2008-2009 school year. The new pricipal has made a difference in the tone of the school. Unfortunately he can't do it all. A lot of the childrens actions are because of the lack of discipline at home. There is no reason the children should come to school cursing, throwing food, stealing,beating up their peers, hitting and threatening teachers. I truly feel sorry for some of the kids that don't have a choice but to endure the enviroment of this school day to day while trying to succeed and learn. Parents, please make visits to the school, see for yourself. Don't just drop your kids off and keep going....they need for you to be involved with a place that they spend so much time in. Don't expect the school district to raise your children....it's your job as a parent.

This is a beautiful school and it could be a great school if parents were more supportive and involved in the educational process.
