Barber Middle School Ratings & Reviews

The main reason am giving this school an average grade is the curriculum. If your child is not into the performing arts he/she is doomed. My son had 2 classes of PE! and yet was lagging behind in math. In 7th grade I practically begged for extra help, summer school, anything to help him improve in math. Nobody came to our rescue. His 8th grade math teacher didn't even want to deal with him from day one! Literally! Now that he is in 8th grade that's when they are scrambling to take him to a remedial class. And he is not alone. Most of his friends are in the same situation. The principal is effective and most of the teachers are great. But they really need to do something about the curriculum...and fast.

Would like to see test scores improve. More programs need to be added desperately. Some kids have physical education for two class periods due to the limited space and only a few elective classes being offered. Needs better books and updated Technology in the classrooms. The teacher are amazing and caring. Administration handles issues swiftly and accordingly. My daughter loves the school, but academically it needs improvement.

This is a title-1 school in Cobb county so it's course offerings, schedule and often course load are dictated by the county. That being said, my son has been there for 2 years and we have been really pleased. All of the teachers seem to care and want the kids involved, the music, dance, fine arts program is extensive and their communication via technology is very helpful (each teacher has a blog and they update it every day - not just a forgotten page in cyberspace). They all focus on helping the kids learn organization and multi-tasking. Very pleased. I saw a poster complain that there weren't organized sports held at the school specifically and that is because in the state of GA middle school programs are run via the high schools. The city of Acworth also has a huge extensive football and basketball rec-league program that plays in the Barber middle school gym.

this is the worst school ever. My son went there for the 6th and 7th and 8th grade. the worst thing was a teacher named Coach Richardson. Instead of teaching all he would do is talk about thugs and how students won't be able to be succeed in the real world. But, there was one good thing. This one teacher named Laurie Caroll. She was so helpful to my child. She would care about the students and try her hardest to make them succeed.
