Gresham-Barlow School District Reviews

I've been a student in the Gresham-Barlow School District my entire school career so my ability to compare to another system is invalid. However, being in thus district as long as I have has shown me the ups and downs. Good things have been that no matter what, there's always good teachers that overall want you to succeed. Along with this, even though we do not have as much money as we wish we did, there is a great variety of things/rrsources available for students and parents likewise. Downsides may be that the School District is difficult to contact and that some of the schools' out-datedness has proven to be an issue at times.

The Gresham Barlow School District provides some of the best education in Oregon. All their high schools are clean and only minimal damage has been done over the years. Most high school roofs are still intact, and do not leak. The culture is great at all high schools. The students value individuals that are most likely to be homeless in the next five years. The staff is also very professional. They all know how to teach their subject very well, and are not ex truck drivers. Overall, the Gresham Barlow School District is very good. Nice job.
The district is average. It's not terrible, but it's not great. There are a lot of great teachers and a lot of terrible ones. Administration does not respond well to the needs of the students, but part of that is just the restrictions of budgeting.
