Alot of people have a bad view of Bartlett, however in the past couple of years the academics has soared and the athletic programs have increased. They have approved a new softball field for the school and have built a new weightroom for the girls program. The administration is motivated to get the school district to an elite school.
After moving here from the east coast and having an understanding of elementary education we were careful about choosing Bartlett. At the elementary school level the children receive caring instruction and more than acceptable academics. Small town yes. Lacking some of the bells and whistles. Maybe. Delivering the essentials. Definitely
Bartlett in overall is NOT a great school. My kids have many problems throughout the school year and at the end when they will take the SAT the scores are only in the 900's. The discipline is NOT even close to being fare. All anyone cares is about football and sports. Yes, sports are VERY important but they should invest in other things then just sports. Their band program is also okay. If I was to be choosing a school for my kids and I could do it all over again, I would NOT choose Bartlett.
