    My son started going to Barnes during the 2nd semester on Kindergarten and I was not at all impressed with his teacher. This year he's in first and he has a wonderful teacher who seems to care about every one of her students individually and has a great personality. I really like the principal and the school nurse is also very compassionate and caring however I'm not very pleased with the school counselor right now. My son has been diagnosed with a learning disability and while his teacher is doing everything she can to help him the counselor seems reluctant to accept the learning disability.

    great academic programs I was very pleased with the reading level that my daughter was at at the end of her school year. Parent involvement is as good as the parent wants. I was very invovled and never felt like it was a bad thing in fact it was incouraged.
