    My son likes going to this school and likes his teacher. For me this is something that matters the most. In addition to that here are some thing that I like about the school patient and encouraging teachers activities that are education and fun at the same time great teacher-parent communication great educational goals they set in class strict behavior rules. Yes I do like when there are some strict behavior rules in classes. First it is essential for successful learning; second it is how kids learn to be responsible.

    my girls have attended this school for two years now and has made a tremendous change in their work habits and the fundamentals that are taught are great. I would highly recommend this school in the antelope area.

    Teachers are strict and unfair. Children can't run around without being benched or get detention. If your child has problems they will not help only make your child miserable.

    The teachers at Barrett Ranch go above and beyond to make sure the kids have a well rounded education to include the arts. Most of the teachers put in more off-duty hours than a lot of emergency responders. The difference is that the teachers do not get paid for their extra hours.

    Barrett Ranch Elementary has an amazing group of teachers who not only work collaboratively with each other but with parents and students as well. The teachers are amazingly dedicated and most of them devote (unpaid) time to after school clubs and activities to promote the arts and other events for the students and families. Barrett Ranch is a wonderful school with wonderful people!

    I absolutely love Barrett Ranch for both of my boys. The principal is very proffessional and personable. She is easy to approach. The teachers are always happy and the morale is high with students and the staff. Barrett Ranch celebrates spirit day and many many kids participate in wearing school colors and showing their pride. I am very happy with the high caliber of education my two boys receive there.

    My oldest son has attended Barrett Ranch for the past three years and has enjoyed his time there. His teachers have been tremendous and the faculty are equally impressive. My wife and I feel very fortunate to have our son attending a school in Dry Creek and specifically Barrett Ranch Elementary!
