    My daughter has been going to Barka for the last two years and I cannot stress how WONDERFUL this school and staff is. My daughter has flourished with the help guidance and encouragement of her teachers Mrs. Konstant (K) and Mrs. Smith (1st Grade). The whole staff is very hand on and always willing to listen to your concerns and addressing any problems head on. Great job Barka!!!
