    "Barrett is a great school for all children. My daughter is a high achieving student that learns quickly, is extremely motivated and loves to learn. Her needs have been met by each of her teachers over the past four years. They have moved her into flexible groups for reading and math to meet her needs. They have met with her individually and challenged her to take on new learning. However, what has impressed me the most is the teachers taking the time to teach her about life- teach her to collaborate in teams, teach her to negotiate her ideas and teach her to value others. Barrett is a unique school enhanced by a diverse group of students and a smart, thoughtful, hard working staff."

    "It is true that the API scores of Barrett are not the same as Charter School or Nordstrom. However, they have been showing growth in the last couple of years. If you are looking for a school with a 900+ score that teaches to the tests and if you find comfort in children who are all economically, racially and educationally the same as your family, this is not your school. Barrett students are diverse, because of their diversity, they are learning to be students of the world. They honor each other, and they are part of an eager community of learners, where everyone is valued. The teachers are incredibly dedicated to their students, and they work effectively with parents as a support team for each child. In our experience, our very cognitively gifted child was found to have significant social skills deficits and some non-verbal learning disorders. In other schools, because he was achieving above level grades, he might have been turned away from services, but not at Barrett. They want children to get all the help they can to be able to achieve their potential in the classroom. Parent involvement at the school is also very high. Barrett was a wonderful fit for our family."

    "I agree with some of the other parents. This is by far a school for non english speaking students. This really takes away learning from kids who are native english speaking. The principal is good and so are the teachers. But my child was far above the average level when it came to education. I had to ask for more homework at times and my kid seemed bored. If you are white and with smart kids, give Nordstrom a try."

    "My daughter has attended Barrett Elementary for 3 years now and she has adored every teacher she has had. I believe they are very committed to helping the students. My daughter has learned a lot these past few years. Also, we have a great new principal."

    "One thing we all need to remember is education starts at home. We place a lot of responsibility on schools and teachers to be the primary educators of our children - in my opinion, too much responsibility. At Barrett, the teachers take this responsibility very seriously, but face challenges with the ever increasing number of ESL and ELL students, increasing budget restraints and dimishing funds, and lack of parental support. Lisa Atlas and her staff are committed to improving the lives and quality of education their students receive, but to see a greater level of academic performance and improvement in pride and self confidence in these children, there needs to be a stronger committment from the parent community to make this happen. Invest in your own child's future and show your support through volunteering time in the classrooms, supporting the HSCC through donations, and being 'present' in their daily academic lives!"
