Barranca Elementary School Ratings & Reviews

Barranca Broncos Rock! Barranca is a fantastic magnet school where kids have opportunities that quite a few elementary schools do not offer. The staff, from Principal to Teachers to Janitors are so friendly and really there for your kids. The Principal, Mrs. Sheehan, is actively involved and always making campus improvements. The school does try its hardest to push your kids to their potential. The curriculum is rigorous and the school integrates technology as a tool where students have Chromebooks to take home to use as a resource for their learning. Barranca has an awesome PTA and I am happy to have my four children at Barranca. I am very pleased with my children’s experience at this school; the teachers are very caring and loving. One of my kids performs above grade-level in several subjects, the other three have made leaps and bounds academically. I know that they are in a safe environment where the teachers actually care about students. Our children's success is a team effort. Shout out to Mrs. Plante, one of the best teachers at Barranca! She rocks!

After the unprofessionalism and disrespect I received directly from the school principal, Kim Sheehan, I felt I had no choice, but to pull both my daughters out from that school. Besides arguing with me and speaking to me in a belittling manner in front of many others, including staff, other parents and many children, my own daughters included, Principal Sheehan decided to take things even further! After a while of Sheehan's rude boorish behavior, I decided I had had enough, so I decided it was time to walk away, so I turned to my daughters and said to them, "let's go girls" and began walking towards the exit, that is when Principal Sheehan, decided she would physically block my oldest daughter from passing through, by putting her hand and arm across her chest. She then insisted in continuing the argument with me. I was shocked! I asked her to get her hand off my daughter, but instead she begins to pull the laptop bag off from around my daughter's neck and shoulder. I could not believe it!! My daughter began to cry! But she did not seem to care at all. In fact she wasn't done yet! Sheehan, then grabed my second daughter by the wrist and did the same to her!! After she physically removed the bags from them, both my daughters were crying. All of this was over some forms that she insisted I updated immediately. She threatened my daughters would not be allowed back into the school if I did not do as she demanded. We are new to the Covina school district. Never had I ever experienced anything such as this! What a way of making us feel welcomed. Kim crossed the line! Not only was I treated with disrespect, but both my daughters as well, by non other than the very own school principal, Kim Sheehan. Someone in that position who represents an entire school should conduct themselves and behave as a role model for everyone there, especially the children! Principal Sheehan, demonstrated how little she cares about the feelings of parents and sadly, even the children. Sheehan, is unethical, and I do not doubt her to be prejudice as well. Clearly, she lacks in the skills necessary in accordance to her role and is not fit for the position as a principal. It was such a horrid experience for my daughters, Emery, Eleny and myself!

I have to say some of the teachers are great. Ms. Dahl is the best kindergarten teacher I have known. But when it comes to the principal I sure wish the district could find a better person. She needs to learn how to be polite , not only to students but parents. My personal opinion is that this principal only cares about getting the funding for school.

It has it's pro's and cons. For starters, they have some excellent teachers there . However, my child had excellent grades and I felt they were overlooked. There is no student of the month, no honor roll. I think that students need these things for more reason to strive. The GATE program is weak. There is so much focus on testing that the was hardly any attention given to GATE it seems. An occasional extra worksheet sent home with homework was all that was given for GATE students. I really didn't want to bad mouth the school but, I honestly do not have too many good things to say other than the staff are very friendly. The principal falls a little short of being professional at times. I think that the school can use some restructuring. Maybe a new principal? I don't know to much about how funding and school districts work so, there may be good reasons to why things are they way they are at this school.
