What a gem. This school has surpassed my expectations on sooo many levels. We came from a private school, so our expectations were high, but the education and the experiences that my children get daily at Barron Park are quite impressive. First and foremost the teachers bend over backwards to make sure they are challenging each child at their own level. I have seen such wonderful changes in my children in their desire to learn, and their confidence to be more independent and responsible. What a blessing! The extra-curricular programs are outstanding: Tasting Week- with chefs from Google and Facebook, salad bar A to Z, Bike Rodeo (learning bike safety), a field trip to Half Moon Bay (regular field trips coordinate with studies), are just a few activies from the last 2 weeks. There are free lunch time activities such as Art, Choir, Zumba Taekwondo, Scratch Club etc, And after school these opportunities continue, with Wizbots, Young Inklings, PAPPA Art, etc.

Lastly I want to comment on the diversity of this school. (An explanation for our lower test scores.) There are children and families from all over the world!! Last May, the 5th grade graduating class had 55 countries represented!! Amazing for such a small school. But the affect on my kids is a greater appreciation for world geography -- they come home and want to show me where their friend just moved here from! And how to say "Where's the bathroom? " in Russian. Pretty Cool.

My two children have both attended Barron Park, and while we have had one bad teacher, and one that had some off moments, most of the experience has been wonderful. The school principal is first rate, and the campus is darling. The older kids are kind to the younger kids, and the whole place has a warm family feel.

PROS: Great campus and some excellent staff
CONS: One or two questionable teachers

Since Barron Park is such a small school, the amount of attention that my children receive is fantastic. The school spends a lot of time focusing on differentiation of instruction, and as a result my children feel academically challenged and supported. Most importantly though, are the lessons they are learning about diversity of culture, language, and socio-economic status (not alway easy to find in Palo Alto). The families at Barron Park are also wonderfully supportive and warm. This is an elementary school where my kids have received a great education and found safe and supportive place to grow.
