Joel Barlow is a wonderful HS that has a spectrum of classes to offer. The kids are nice and come from mostly affluent backgrounds. Most students are college bound. There are several sports offered. Perhaps the biggest need would be more spirit in the school. The cheerleaders are good and getting much ...  Read more

disgrace of a school. fallen off the charts in recent years.

Joel Barlow hosts an advanced and broad curriculum that can really accommodate every student. Academics are relatively rigorous in comparison to nearby schools but not unmanageable. The sport program is a bit lacking due to low school spirit but still has great coaches and moderate competitive success. ...  Read more

Academics are sound here, particularly for the student invested in learning. Administration extols rules over logic and times, and guidance could use help moving into the 21st Century. A good education if not a good experience of education...

The academics at JBHS are simply not up to par with those of area schools. The school ignores the academically needy and fails to serve the academically gifted. The teaching staff ranges from outstanding to miserable (with most of the staff falling in the miserable range).

Wonderful school, free from riff-raff. Teacher's don't have to waste their time disciplining anyone in these classes. Lockers do not need locks. There is a music program, however it is a bit lacking. I do believe they are working to improve this however. Excellent teachers. Recently updated building ...  Read more
