I love everything about my school! I’ve been in the Barren County School system since kindergarten. Also my parents, grandparents. Everyone went here. It’s just an all together amazing school. And when my best friend committed suicide in August of 2017, the school system and community supported the family and myself extremely well.

Honestly, as much as I complained about school, it was a better experience than I made it out to be. They had lots of events and activities and they even added a choir my senior year which made me ecstatic! We always had goals to reach and there was always something planned for us. Plus, our school was over flowing with school spirit! There wasn't a single hallway you could walk down without seeing posters rooting for barren county, along with numerous flyers about up coming events, which were actually usually student based and produced. Over all, a very good experience that I'd hate to take for granted.
I moved in the middle of my sophomore year. Moving into barren county high school was a big adjustment, I was coming into a small conservative town, when I was from a large liberal city. The people were mostly nice but some looked down on me for my views. The staff and teachers have always been very helpful.
