Excellent College Prep Program. Wonderful, caring environment. Excellent Jewish life and values. Children and staff of diverse backgrounds. Transportation available for those out of the area. Great Jewish studies, Language and Humanities programs. Science, Math and Engineering Very good. Small class size. Lots of sports for kids to choose from - most kids are on at least one team - which is in lieu of taking a gym in high school. Very good college counselling and advising - work with students to limit need for parent involvement in application and selection process.

We couldn't be happier with Barrack. Besides the academic excellence thatBarrack has provided our daughter, it has worked tirelessly to help us raise a fantastic individual. In the age of social media and many other distractions, Barrack has kept our daughter engaged, challenged and happy...no minor undertakings!
Barrack has been a life changing school for my daughter. She had an amazing middles school experience academically, socially, and spiritually. We were welcomed into this community like no other, as evidenced by the way the administration takes and interest in getting to know every student, their parents, often their grandparents and other family members. We came to the school once we recognized that its academic programming seemed highly developed and flexible, and we were not disappointed by the quality of the instruction and the way teachers truly differentiate with many learning styles. Our daughter has made incredible, lifelong friendships and we have been more than impressed by the moral character of these children, which is not only influenced by their families but by the culture of the school. Our daughter is safe, loved, nurtured, challenged, and elevated by this school and we are so grateful we made the decision to send her.
