    Great school! Small class size faith based education wonderful teachers! I wouldn't send my children anywhere else!

    I was blessed to we welcomed into the St. Barnabas family in the middle of the school year. Not only are the children high achievers and hard workers but they are caring people. The teachers and staff work hard to educate students beyond the text materials. Each student is treated with respect and as a valued member of the school. Students grow to become strong leaders who can problem solve.

    Saint Barnabas is a wonderful school. I have two children that attend and I couldn't be happier. I give St. Barnabas and A+.

    St Barnabas is a great school. Good kids teachers sense of community togetherness. My kids loved it there. Until we got a little behind on our payments and the principal decided not to deal with us anymore. So my kids were removed! Not the kind of faith-based school I thought it was. Too bad they couldn't reach out to those in their own parish. My kids were honor roll students and athletes)

    I went there for 12 years and learned a lot of valuable lessons and met some great people. I stay in touch with friends I made to this day!

    We have three children in this school and wouldn't trade it for the WORLD! Excellent teachers staff and very well behaved students. Received Indiana's Blue Ribbon award as a top school in the state.

    It's a good school with students that are well behaved. I am a substitute teacher who has worked in 14 different schools on the south side of Indpls. and I feel that this is one of the very best schools on the southside. I have worked in seven public six catholic and one Lutheran school. We have had 4 children attend this scool and now have a grandchild at Saint Barnabas.
