This is a fantastic school! My son transferred here in the third grade and he loves it. I never have to worry about him wanting to go to school. The Park and Rec. center is an added gem- well run, professional and fun for the child. I give the school a 5 out of 5!

This little school is simply spectacular. The front-office is engaged and genuinely helpful, the faculty and staff are simply wonderful, and the parent community is highly supportive. The school environment is safe, but not in the sleepy sense. Our DC just graduated, and we will miss CBES more that ...  Read more

I am not sure what criteria this site uses to determine its rating, but Barrett is the only school in its division that met AYP. (out of 14 other schools.) It is a fantastic school with a diverse student body that is exceeding all our expectations.

I do not understand this rating score of a 3. I am moving and looking at new schools and would never send my child to a '3' school. However, my daughter has been at Charles Barrett since 2nd grade and it is a wonderful school! The teachers and other staff are amazing. My daughter has struggled through ...  Read more

This is our first year at this school and my daughter just loves it. As her parents we are also very happy with all the teachers and staff. The students are also lovely, well mannered children. We have nothing but positive things to say about this school. We love that it's small and so hands on. Any ...  Read more
