The Barron Area School District is such a diverse community! In the schools we have a huge diversity of white, Spanish, and Somali students, and everyone is super involved with the Special Ed department. We try to make sure that everyone has a fair chance at involvement with everything. The school does a very good job at making sure the environment is friendly, safe, and fair.

I transferred to the Barron Area School District after my 4th grade year. Ever since then I have loved going to Barron. The BASD gave me so many more opportunities with my education and extracurriculars that my previous district did not. From the students to the teachers to the superintendent, everyone that is a part of the BASD makes you feel welcome. I truly am proud to call myself a Golden Bear!
Barron High School is a pretty good school. The food is really good, and the cooks are lovely. The staff and teachers are really helpful in everything they do. The teachers are good to the students, and in return the students respect the teachers and those around them. They help me become a better person. And not just me, but every single person in the school. For that I am thankful. The classes are barable, and so is the amount of work.
