I strongly recommend this small but the best private Catholic school in Orange County to everyone because of its excellent and rigorous education.

pros: - 2:15 dismissal on Fridays cons:- homework during break - teachers are hypocrites and they are fake in front of parents and spectators - student council members have no say in any school activities or decisions - parents have to pay large amounts of money for school trips that shouldn't cost more than $10 (ex: middle school field trips to plays cost around $20, when it should only cost at most $5 because the plays should be free since the higschools are advertising themselves and the bus money should be spread evenly among all students attending) - parents pay $350+ for chromebooks yet graduating students do not get keep their chromebooks - nothing useful is taught in fine arts (art & music) class - teachers give 30 minute lectures about wasting time to the students while the teacher is the one wasting time - science teacher does not teach (ex: she assigns students to assignments that she does not give a proper introduction to the topic being assigned) - school lunches are horrid - physical education teachers expects all students to do well - a lot of useful websites are blocked on the chromebooks- no swing set on playground - big toys are enclosed by a fence and students are not allowed to play on equipment unless a certain number of students agree to play - students are very boisterous and are plain rude- lockers are legit 8 by 8 inches, not all books can fit inside - nothing useful is taught in technology class - hallways lack space in width - students are not allowed to sit at the lunch tables after they finish eating their lunches - bathrooms are unsanitary and very smelly - no air conditioning- water from water fountains are the color white and taste horriblethere are more cons but im too lazy to type them all

I attended this school from 6th through 8th grade my sisters were fortunate enough to attend k-8th. I came from a public school were I had zero study habits and very poor grades. Yes I struggled a bit but I had great teachers, they actually cared about my success. To this day I am fortunate to remain friends with several classmates from St. Barbara. My sisters and I had such a great experience that I am currently enrolling my 10 year old and my 4 year old. One parent had a great point all these rules are in the handbook structure and rules are good for kids.

"As a former student from kindergarten to the third grade, I can now look back and see what is an awful institution. It was 2001 when I started and 2005 when I ended my course at this school, so my review might be outdated; I believe it will not be as such since I looked at the school website to see that most of the staff are the same since I left. This school also deters individualism and creativity. The uniforms are a factor in the deterrence, but it is mostly the teachers. As for creativity, there discouragement and, at times, punishment. From my experience, the education was indeed more advanced in the sense that the students are more ahead than their public school counter parts; the social impact, however, was negative. When I transferred to public school, (my mother saw how horrible the environment was at this school) the freedom felt odd. I would ask other kids if i could play and they said, ""just play you don't need to ask."" It was strange to me how welcoming the environment was in contrast to St. Barbara. Eventually, I would go on to lose my fear of teachers as I progressed in public school. Overall, St. Barbara is not the ideal place to sent your kids to school."

"I taught at St. Barbara's a few years ago and agree with a couple comments posted by parents. Yes, there are a few teachers there without CA teaching credentials. It's easy to find out, just look it up. However, taking a few classes doesn't make you a good teacher! True, St. Barbara may not have many clubs or activities, but those ""clubs and activities"" are made possible through parent volunteers. Step up and become involved! The comments made about the crew socks are silly! I have two children who attend an out of state Catholic school (800 students) and have never heard of a parent complain about socks. Both boys and girls MUST wear crew socks, no nail polish, and uniform policy is VERY strict compared to St. Barbara's. Parents, the school rules are not made up after you enroll! Read the handbook! I haven't been there for a while, but I'll bet the academic achievement at SB is much higher than the surrounding community schools."
