Trash.The school is trash. Nothing more, nothing less.... The school is like a factory. They try to ship(graduate) students out of that building as cheaply as possible. They don't care about the quality of the education.

I have attended this school for all four years and I absolutely love it. The teachers really care about the students and get involved. I think the environment has given me many opportunities, like AP classes.

TERRIBLE SCHOOL! I find both the student body and the teachers to be horribly closed minded and conservative here. The students are not being prepared for real life and in many ways live in 'lala land'. I am not attending this school next year, I shall be going to Gresham High.

I am the parent of 5 children 1 of which attended Barlow for one year and hated it, and 2 who currently attend and who both are doing very well. I would like to find a way that our schools could get the funding that they need to provide excellent education which I know they are capable of.

barlow is a great school. you DO get all questions answered and the teachers do care about all students and want them all to succeed. the reason why it is so crowded is because it is a good school to attend. all high schools are going to be crowded. woo go barlow!
