Barnwell School District has some of the rudest teachers I’ve ever seen. There are a few that actually care about your well being and seeing you succeed but the majority of them don’t. They don’t try to reach out and help when you need it and in my opinion this is not doing their job effectively. Some of them have their “picks” and don’t care about anyone else. However, there are some good parts of Barnwell School District. If you come to the administration with a problem, they will do their best to come up with a solution. I would like for the schools to be more clean or for them to just be rebuilt. You can expect for a cockroach to crawl out at any moment which is very disgusting

As I was enrolled in the Honors program throughout the entirety of my stay in the Barnwell School District, I had a relatively good experience. Most of the teachers were good people and they were there to help if you needed it.
Overall Barnwell High is a great school, with some great teachers and students, and plenty of school spirit. there could be some more money put towards the arts programs, and some more clubs in general. The only other bad thing is a major of the time rules are not enforced as much as the should be.
