I'm starting my 10th year at Barnet school and I have strong opinions for this school. For one, this school does help every student but mostly makes changes to an entire class or two just because two or three students did something wrong the year before. With our No Child Left Behind thing we got going on here, students are passing onto next grade levels who should not be moving up. It's now up to the parents if they want their child held back or not. I've talked to a teacher last school year and she said that one or two of the kids might not be able to graduate the upcoming school year.

I have been at the Barnet School for a short while, but have found the staff, students and administration to be willing to make change in order to meet the needs of ALL students. This is a school that might have been in a rut, but is now moving forward to teach children how to be successful in a technological society. However, there is still time to enjoy the extensive nature trail, lush gardens, and all that the world has to offer!

10 years ago Barnet was clearly the very best local school in the area for academic achievement. Unfortunately current leadership has allowed acedemic excellence to suffer and costs to rise. Sadly... this school prefers to tread water and accept adequate performance, rather than strive to its former glory!
