I am very happy with our experiences at Barber. Learning is happening, social skills are being developed, and my son looks forward to going to school every day. The school is orderly, clean and well-managed. I was happy to see the longer classes this year. Very pleased.

My child attends this BMS as di her siblings. The staff is phenomenal. They are professional, highly qualified to teach and most of all care about each student as an individual. Communication with home is excellent. The campus is state of the art, clean and inviting. My child feels safe there and nurtured. Dickinson is a great place to raise your family!

As a grandparent of one of the 6th graders , I attended many of the functions. I was especially impressed with the band director who enthusiastically took charge and the young folks were great in a very short period of time. The other activity that impressed me was the Robotics club. The two monitors encouraged the kids and they responded and did quite well. I appreciate their enthusiastic leadership. I had the opportunity to speak with other teachers and the principal and was very impressed. My thanks to all.

I have been working at BMS for 6 years now and I love my job. It is rewarding to help mold Dickinson children into great ambassadors for learning. We set high expectations and accept nothing but the best from each child. We have many clubs to allow students to find their niche in their creativity. Our office staff shows exemplary professionalism and is welcoming to each individual that comes in our doors. Our administrators demonstrate excellent leadership and fairness. We as a staff become hero's for the next generation of leaders. I am proud to work at BMS.

If you have no other choice to enroll your kids here at this school Then Make Sure you have a Computer because I have lost count how many times they have messed up on online grades, attendance, and so forth. You have to be on top of it because they aren't. I have never seen such a DISORGANIZED SCHOOL like this in my life. PARENTS BEWARE!! I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND this school to anyone!
