I have had an excellent experience at Barnstable High School. Although the builds interior structures could definitely use some fixes (I.e desks, locks on the bathroom stalls etc.) the staff and overall teaching approach by teachers is incredible. The teachers value the students learning and take time one on one with students to make sure they understand material. The classes offered in this school I've had the opportunity to take such as CNA and pathology and biotechnology are like no other and the equipment used in the science labs is college level. The dedication and cooperation by teachers and students alike is what makes this school one of the best and any student should be lucky to go there.
Going to Barnstable as a first year senior seemed like it was going to be scary. When I enrolled they told me I had enough credits to graduate so rather than take classes at the high school level I was enrolled in dual enrollment. During this process my school was extremely helpful in getting all of my classes straight and making sure I was prepared for graduation. After this however, it seemed nearly impossible to reach my guidance counselor or anyone else that could answer any questions I have and I feel as though I've been left to figure it all out on my own
