Please if you love your child do not send them to barnett junior high school when I say this stuff I will not be dramatic with you. there are fist fights every other day so my daughter tells me. the learning is the worst the teachers do not know how to control their kids and my daughter says it is very hard to learn there because of the noise. She also says that she sees people doing unbearable things that might not be appropriate for this site. One example is the PDA displayed every day around my daughter and other children. And also my daughter says the coaches shows favorites towards other students.I highly dont suggest going to this school

I was a substitute for this school and my experience there was okay. The students will always be loud and really hard to control, no matter how many threats, instructed by their teacher, they will still try to push your limits. You need to be firm and try to get these kids to quiet down every moment. It's more easier for someone with a way stronger appearance to calm the students down. I would blame the teacher for not telling the students beforehand and to let them know there will be a substitute and they need to be in their best behavior. The staffs are great and supportive at least.

In the office the staff is so RUDE some are ok but the most part I just think that if you are in education you should have some type up education not get a job because your mother or friend works there having a high school diplomia is the first start not a GED because this saids a lot about the Principal Leaderships this school needs a investigation of who the staff is.They have a couple of teachers that really care how the kids are doing.althought 90% dont care just there for a paycheck.

I have had so many problems at Barnett Junior High! My daughter made good grades, was well likes and received many awards in her Elementry School. This is her second year and it's a nightmere! Kids are suspended and parents are not called. Kids get into fights and the parents are not notified. The principles are rude and do not work with the parents and kids. Kids are to be at school learning...not worried about being bullied. The school needs a complete overhaul!!!!! One more thing, the music they let these young ladies dance too so inappropriate. I was there for the try outs for Sprit team and again for a talent show! I was horrified by the music!!!!

HORRIBLE SCHOOL. It is almost impossible for parents to get in touch with the staff especially the principle. I find it to have a bad learning enviornment i mean how can a child learn when day after day the are getting bullied and have no one to talk to no one that would listen to their problems!!!!! All do this school does have high test scores it has the worst environment for kids that get bullied to learn!!! It just broke my heart when I go to the school and see the same kid getting PICKED ON OVER AND OVER AGAIN!!!! DAY AFTER DAY!!!! And no one does nothing about it. This school has some serious issuses....

This school is horrible, I have never had so many problems with my child before this school, it's so hard to get in touch with the principle, he never calls back or answers any questions. The rules are a big joke, the kids don't seem to take serious. So many fights go on here and drugs are a big issue too. I can't wait for this year to be over!

Barnett Jr. High School, is more than just a school of academic instruction. This school is a family of parents, teachers, and students who have come together from around the area to mak a positive name for this school The principal is caring. The students are grounded in knowledge, skills, and background experience, which prepares them for high school, and other obstacles foreseen in the academic layout.

I personally think this school is great.We were hurricane evacuees from New Orleans and Texas education is far better than ours but I think my daughter has gained a lot considering the short time she has attended,we are back in New Orleans.My husband and I are planning to return and would like our daughter to attend Barnett.

Overall Barnett is a great school, however it may not be always fair. You don't want to come to this school if you want your child to have equal rights. They only look at one side of the story. But overall in academics they are very above average.
