Barksdale Elementary School Reviews

3 reviews
As a teacher for the last 28 years, I can tell you there are none better at meeting the needs of all students. This is a caring staff that starts by having administrators that cultivate a climate of learning through acceptance and kindness to all. The turnover ratio is practically zero because the staff loves the school and community and wants to be a part of it. I have had the pleasure of teaching in many great schools. Barksdale is the best!
I am taken aback by the one review that listed "terrible". Our music program has grown incredibly over the last 3 years and it is evident in the love the students have for music and the parents who support and attend our many incredible musical performances. We are a well rounded education that includes all areas of learning. We are Bronco Strong.

As a teacher at Barksdale, I can tell you first hand it is a top notch school! The teachers and adminstration put students first in every decision that they make and provide an excellent education for every child they serve. Mrs. Caplinger is very supportive of her staff. The review about the school declining since the music teacher left sounds to me like a former teacher had hard feelings after leaving. That review is not an accurate depiction of our school.
The best elementary school you could attend. The teachers and administration care so much about all the students. The staff goes above and beyond to make sure all children are growing. Administration sets the positive climate for teachers and students.
