    Barnes School is a great school for students to learn and mostly parents needs to get more involved with their them and check their book sacks daily to make sure their work is done. Also go to school to check with teachers concerning their homework and classwork not to for progress and report card to come. I give those teachers principals and those involved with all students a high Praise for their good work... I'm a parent and I goes out there as must as I can to check my children...God Bless Barnes School.
