    Barlow is an excellent school. My son is already a student here and my oldest daughter will be starting kindergarten this year (sept '04). I am very involved with the PTO which supports Barlow's students and staff 110%. Our parents fight for the rights of our children and their education as well as the staff doing their job to make sure our children are getting an excellent education. Hopefully when it comes down to the budget all the schools will get their fair share to give our children what they deserve. I plan to continue being involved with the PTO even when my youngest daughter attends barlow in the next year and a half. Barlow is the best elementary school in the Plainfield School District followed closely by Emerson.
