Henry Barnard Laboratory School Reviews

3 reviews
My two children have excelled at Henry Barnard School. I believe this is due to the smaller class sizes and the highly qualified teachers. Henry Barnard School is unique in that it is located on the RIC campus, allowing the school access to the college’s greenhouse, auditorium, quad and recreation center, to name a few places. In this way, learning is extended beyond the walls of the elementary school building. The school is always doing something inventive and impressive, including Tech Ed events, an annual Spanish performance night involving the entire school, and community building events where the younger students get paired with the older students to work on special projects. These are just a few examples of the innovative approaches to learning at Henry Barnard. My children truly love going off to school in the morning.

HBS is a gem. Diverse, with wonderfully engaged parents and kind, smart kids. It’s really an advantage to have it on the RIC campus, as the extras that a college provides really enriched the experience. The teachers are all RIC faculty members, and are active in education research, and that really shows in the curriculum!
We feel so lucky to have found this amazing school. The faculty and staff are engaged and dynamic. They foster a love of learning in the students using a hands-on laboratory approach that allows students to dive into deeper, real world applications with cross-curriculum development. The teachers work together to create fun learning opportunities that flow from the classroom to the specialist classes that include Spanish, Technology, Library, Music and more. HBS is truly a family and I know we have found a jewel in Providence when my children happily run into school every morning, don't want to leave at the end of the day, tell me they had "the best day" every day and cry at the end of the school year. I wish every child could have an elementary education like this. They don't take a one size fits all approach, and my children, with very different personalities and needs, have thrived at HBS.
