South Barber Unified School District Reviews

3 reviews
I liked that South Barber had great school pride! Students represented the school well at outside events. If I could change something, it would be the way students treated each other. However, there isn't a lot you can do about that. I would also make lunch different. For a small school, I think it would be fun to do a "Mix-Up Monday" where students had to sit at different tables and interact with different people.

Always improving and keeping the best interest of our students a priority. Strong building administrators and teachers build a great program.
South Barber High School is a very safe school. There is hardly any bullying, and the students are well behaved. The class sizes are very small, so more attention is given to each student. However, there is a very limited number of activities due to the small student body. There isn't much to offer to students who are looking to challenge themselves academically.
