I loved my experience at Barnum High School. The teachers there pushed me to do my best, and are all personally invested in each student's success. The counselor goes out of her way to find the information that upperclassmen need. The school is small, so you can know basically everyone you go to school with, but there aren't many social functions to attend besides games and the occasional dance. And because they're small, they don't have the budget for some funner classes, but overall the classes offered are good ones. Highly recommend this school.

I love Barnum High School, their music program is so good!! I can connect with all of the teachers and staff. Not very many schools have it where all the teachers can talk to you by your name, and Barnum’s can. Not just the teachers, but also the staff. This is very much so a positive and motivating school setting. Everyone is trustworthy and honest. Of course there will be some kids that are mean, but the staff does everything they can to deal with issues.
I didn't mind this high school. There was a few experiences that were a little out of hand. The school has a budgeting issue, that could have been easily prevented. Overall, I did like my learning experience although there were a few not so great teachers.
