    I loved this school also. 1950-1956. Huge changes to the whole area. Teachers are no doubt all gone Sapington Johnson Wilson Ramos Kamm and Clayson. Loved them all. Dollie P.

    My children attend this school and I dont feel comtorable that unifoms are mandatory green and white. The school is so dirty that alone might create a negative atmosphere for children. And how can children stay clean if there drinking faucets look like that of a prison. The whole school needs to be cleaned up as they way they want to clean up the behavior of children. I dont think this is a fair act to children it violates their right for choice. How can we expect them to feel they live in a free country when you got a public school telling them what to wear. They should concentrate on making the whole school a positive place to be by making it presentable.

    This school has and open door to opportunities to students as well as parents. The opportunity that many don't have and that is to grow with knowledge and to develope leadership. Having English classes and Civic Participation at Bardin will help many parents to develop their English skills and leadership so that they are able to help their children so that they can be successful but most of all with the leadership development they will be able to advocate for those programs that are so valuable to our children so that they can succeed. Being a part of Bardin is being a part of the team that make wounderful things happen for the improvement for a better tommorrow. Ma. E.

    I love this school. Tell your staff at Bardin School to keep up the good work. I also love how there's a lot of teachers that have been teaching there for a long time. I went to Bardin and it is still the best school I've ever been to.
