    The staff and faculty are really concern about these kids the way a school should be. The building has been there since about 1921 need some updates especially the heating and air system. Still using the old boiler system. GO BARRETT.

    This school is wonderful. The teachers are awesome. The teachers take time to work with the students so that they will pass to the next grade. Very few students fail.
