    "I see that the 'old homework debate' is alive and well at Barrett. Both sides have valid and heartfelt opinions on this subject, but I must agree with Barrett's recent decision to limit homework to nightly reading. This decision was reached by Mrs. Atlas based on recent , in depth, national studies that observed that students that do alot of homework in elementry grades do not perform any better than students that do limited amounts of homework . Studies have also shown that good READING habits are the most important factor in a students academic success. In todays real world,families may not have much quality time with their young children. Stress over getting homework done may collide with many working mothers that are too tired at night to fight the homework battle. I applaud Mrs. Atlas for her courage and insight into bringing Barrett into the todays world. Debra Morris,guardian"

    "I just read the unfair review that someone posted yesterday. I am a mother of 7 and a grandparent of 8. I am familiar with many schools at all levels. My two eldest grandsons graduated from college last year. my youngest grandson will graduate from Barrett in a few weeks. i have had grandchildren at Barrett since the day it opened. This is a school full of dedicated, caring teachers that are very aware of all recent educational tools and how to incorporate them into their classrooms. Mrs. Atlas, the principal is the most enregetic, intelligent leader I have ever encountered in over 50 years of haveing students in public schools. She loves her school , the students and her staff and gives 150% of her time and energy to Barrett. You should also find out about recent recognition of Barrett students in regional accomplishments. Check your facts !"

    "with all do respect to all comments , i do not agree with them.most of the teachers don't care if the students did their homework, or even finishes their work at school. everything is optional,the teacher will give the student a long list of questions to do for their reading, but not all the students will do it, because it's optional. this year they started the no homework thing, only reading, that's the principal new way of doing homework, so how about math, science and writing. the other thing is i don't see my kids studying science ,they say they don't have time for it, they'll start the next half of the year,i always wonder what do they do in school all day, their science education is not good at all. the principal seems nice, but as far as leadership and education, she doesn't fit in this catagory."

    "I have been very pleased with Barrett. I moved from Cupertino and have to say I am impressed with the school and most teachers. The school staff is very tuned to the Students needs. The Principal cares about the students and it shows."
