I love the way the school gets involved and has a low child to teacher ratio, and they keep me informed of things going on with my child.

I am very pleased with the quality of education and teacher/student ratio at Barrett Primary. The principal is very involved with the students and the school does a good number of 'family oriented' activities. Most teachers are very willing to meet with you and discuss ways you can help your child improve academically.

I am a parent of my second child going through this school, principal, and staff. This is the best school in Crosby. The principal, Mr.York is the reason this school runs so smoothly. The staff is the friendliest of any school. The children are greeted outside by staff and/or Mr. York daily for safety and comfort. The children are always happy and there is always something going on at the school the children can involve themselves with. Both of my children wish they could stay in this school forever and I hate to see them have to move on but they have a great impression that was left with them from the great staff.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

The test results by subgroup show how the designated group of students is performing in comparison to the general population.
  • In 2010-2011, this school was rated "Academically Acceptable".
  • In 2009-2010, this school was rated "Recognized".
  • In 2008-2009, this school was rated "Recognized".

About the tests

Texas uses Accountability Ratings to indicate the overall performance of each school and district. The ratings are based on TAKS test results, dropout rates for grades 7 and 8 and school completion rates for grades 9 through 12. Schools and districts rated under standard accountability procedures are designated as Exemplary, Recognized, Academically Acceptable or Academically Unacceptable. Schools and districts rated under alternative education accountability (AEA) procedures are designated as either AEA: Academically Acceptable or AEA: Academically Unacceptable.
