    "School actually has improved quite a bit. First of all we finally got a new principal. He is more structured , friendly and easy going. We also have quite a few new teachers and that makes class size smaller. My child tells me how much he is enjoying going to school and how much he is learning in North Barrington Elementary and that I feel is a great accomplishment. I personally love Barrington and believe this school is top rated school in Illinois and I feel good about sending my child there"

    "Beware incoming kindergarteners! Chinese Immersion will be starting at NBS 2014/2015 and 2015/2016. Your kindergartener will be taught of the time by an English speaking teacher and of the time by a teacher where English is their second language (Mandarin is their first). Although you do not sign up for the Chinese Immersion program, your little one will have the same teacher. Good luck working with the principal you won t get any answers from her. The district is behind this program -- so, you won't have any luck with them either. Suggest reaching out to parents from other schools that ran into same issue."

    "Worst school for discipline. Clacess are filled with autistic students and mentally ill among the normal kids. Principal wont do nothing about it. Have had trouble for 3 years already and I feel like principal sweeps everything under the rug. The mentally ill kids they bring to interact with normal kids disrupts the class severely from vulgar outbursts to just misbehaving. Some parents already brought up this as a concern in front of the board but so far nothing has been done. Good luck getting through to the principal that cares less about our kids and more about her paycheck."

    "The school is outstanding. My child has had three amazing years with outstanding teachers and one so-so first year teacher. Concerns about that first-year teacher were addressed by coaching and mentoring to make her better. Improvement was made, but not to the outstanding level we have come to expect. That was a good example of a reasoned response to the parent's voice. The dual language program is very effective. My child is as comfortable talking to kids or adults in Spanish or English and switches languages with ease. My child is completely fluent and reading above grade level in Spanish and English. It is a very well designed program and one of the reasons we moved to the district. I did the research on dual language and the program before we moved. The gifted program is also great; my child has made amazing leaps since entering the program. In reading some of the negative comments and the way were written, I am not sure if they will be happy anywhere. My experiences with any issue raised with the school or teacher is that were addressed quickly and intelligently. While I may not have agreed 100% with them, we were never far apart. Great School."
