10 Parent Reviews for Barwell Road Elementary School

HORRIFYING, that is all I can say. The school was just trash. The teachers hardly taught my child and they changed lesson plans almost everyday so my child couldn't understand what was going on with her learning. ALSO A LOT OF BULLYING!!! They didn't do nothing about it and acted like the students were ...  Read more

The consistently high turnover is substantiated by the morale of some of the staff, especially administration. Integrity is very questionable from the top down, there is an unfavorable buddy system.

Barwell was our base school when I bought my house. It was a new school so I sent my kids there with high hopes for their education. I couldnt have been more wrong/disappointed. The administration is deplorable and the teachers demand children to be robots. Another poster had it right on - kids were ...  Read more

I gave this school a rating of 1 star for overall performance. They don't do testing until the 3rd grade and scores are horrible.

The best way to describe Barwell is a disengaged culture. Administration, teaching staff, parents, kids all seem disenaged. EOG scores continue to be low in comparison to state and county.

Many teachers hated teaching and would complain about having to stay late...even though they didn't get to school until ...  Read more

So far, I'm very pleased with Barwell. Great first impression with kindergarten. They met AYP this year, and are not resting on their laurels at all. Curious to see if this happy community feeling continues through the higher grades.

Barwell is my base elementary school and test scores are embarrassing. I can't believe this is acceptable in the year 2010. This is not something you would choose for your child and should accept. How long should/will it take for scores to improve? I question the standards of WCSS? Additional resources ...  Read more

I have a child that is currently enrolled in Barwell School...I cannot wait for her to be accepted to another school, whether it be traditional based or magnet!!! She has been there for 2yrs now and we only left her there to give the school the benefit of doubt (considering they failed AYP's 2yrs in ...  Read more

Our daughter attended kindergarten at Barwell and we were very pleased with her teacher(s). It was a very positive experience for our daughter. Her teacher took the time to get to know her students and taught accordingly. Our daughter was always motivated and enthused about going to school every day!
