    Our link to Barry School goes back 30 years. Our 3 adult children all went through Barry School. We wee very active in the School the teachers staff & parents worked as a unit for the education of our children. They were the best and still are. Now our Grandkids go to Barry School some of the same wonderful teachers & staff are still there. What is such a blessing is that all of the new teachers have the same caring drive to teach our grandkids. I hope all parents will join PTSA and join the teachers & staff in the education of their children. It takes not only teachers but active parents which Barry School always has had. Having served as a PTSA Board member & member I encourage all parents & grandparents & family to work with Barry to help our kids have a wonderful journey through 8th grade. Thank you Barry Teachers & Staff. A very thankful parent & grandparent.

    I'm a parent of three kids at . The staff is great and their teachers are the treasure of this school. As a active participant of the school I can't say enough about this is the best school in Yuba city.

    Some great teachers but are held back by poor leadership (principal).

  • (8 years ago)

    This school overall was very good. However it did seem that when I tried to be more involved in my son's schooling I was discouraged. Also there did not seem to be any program in place to notify parents if the child was having problems in class. My son would do his homework and then not turn it in and I had no idea until the end of the semester- I just wish someone had told me the first week that he wasn't turning in his work. The teachers overall seemed very dedicated to the students and several in particular where interested in starting innovative programs.
