10/23/2009parentGreat school! Three of my daughters attended Barnett Shoals Elem. until we had to move back home. The teachers there are awesome! My girls are now in middle school & their favorite school memories are in Mrs. Aguilar's K class.
10/7/2009parentBarnett Shoals Elementary school seeks to improve student achievement across the board. The PTO is very involved in helping the teachers be better at what they do, and keeping the school an exciting environment for children to learn.
9/18/2009parentI am sorry to see the negative review by one parent who came from out of state. My granddaughter attended this school last year &we were so pleased. We had to change her school as the school district did--moved many kids elsewhere. I suspect the teacher was the problem, not the school. Aliceson Nobles was Bianca's teacher, &she is a most wonderful teacher, going beyond the call of duty. She coached the step team (which won many competitions)& made so many other efforts. The homework was more than appropriate, even on weekends in addition to 30 mins. reading each &every day. I think that parent should notify the principal and/or the school district if her child was placed with a less than dedicated teacher, which seems to be the case, &could have easily changed teachers if she had asked.
6/29/2009parentI was extremely disappointed in this school. We moved here from out of state & did not get a chance to visit the schools before the move. My seven year old son told me that his behavior at BSES was worse than at his previous school because of lower expectations. I had to supplement his homework with additional work to keep him moving forward. The crossword puzzles and word finds that were sent home as homework are not acceptable. If I am unable to get my son into a private school, I will home school. I cannot put my children back into this school district.
4/3/2009parentI am really glad we had a chance to come and visit Clarke schools before we moved here, and didn't go by what what said on this site. Barnett Schoals a '2'? Seriously? Not our experience. BS gets UGA School of Ed masters program grads + has a stable group of veteran teachers who help newer teachers. My child has blossomed in her class. The physical structure is well kept, and the school culture is close-knit. My husband is a prof at UGA, and we are more than pleased with this school.
10/21/2008parentThis school is the best! The principal, the teachers, and the entire staff were nothing but wonderful. I couldn't have asked for a better school for my son to attend. We have since moved and no longer attend BSES, but it was great while we were there.
9/12/2008parentExcellent School Caring teachers. No better school if your child is autistic.
10/27/2007staffI have been very impressed with Barnett Shoals. I get really tired of people leaving Clarke Co. to go to Oconee schools. They don't know what they are missing! Most of the teachers at BSES are working on a master's degree or have one. It is a school filled with respect and joy. The halls are filled with art work. The ASP program provides many extracurricular activities for the children, including piano lessons. My child is very happy there.
4/11/2006parentThis has been an amazing experience for us and our daughter in the public school system in Clarke County. We are so pleased with Barnett Shoals, the administration and the faculty. It is an excellent school. There are many different levels of learning and a variety of ways to learn. Really, we couldn't think of a better school.
11/7/2005studentGreat school, very attentive to students' needs
6/19/2004parentBarnett Shoals has been a wonderful place for my son. My second child begins in the fall and we are very excited. The teachers are outstanding!
2/24/2004parentBSES is great! We have the best support staff and teachers. Everyone is friendly and helpful, and the teachers go above and beyond to teach our children. And if you should have any concerns at all, you can always stop by & speak to the principle, Mr Clark...wonderful man.
9/21/2003parentBarnett Shoals Elementary has been a wonderful school for my three children. From the Gifted program to the Special Education, the school has so much to offer. We love Barnett Shoals!
