Overall Barringer has so much potential! There is so much that needs to be fixed within the school. For example the cafeteria food and the building as a whole. Maybe if the school offered more things for the kids and made them fun the kids would listen more.

Barringer High school is not one of the best schools to attend. Depending on your teachers and who you surround yourself with, your experience might differ. While a student in Barringer, I had a few nice teachers and a few generous students helped me with my classes but other than that, it was not the best choice in high school experience.
As a former student, the students and the staff have a great relationship. The teachers have taken the interest of the new system which allow the student to have an advance directive to a certain career field. By letting the student focus math or engineering this will allow the student to make a plan of action for their high school years and learn what collages may work for them better by what career they want to follow.
