Barnum school is a good special-ed school & the children do enjoy attending. They offer a lot of activities & upon passing a CORI check you are allowed to tutor children & volunteer for activities that take place at the school. However, one thing that ALL parents sending a child there should know is that the staff & school nurse DRASTICALLY over exaggerate minor medical situations!!!! I have received phone calls to go pick up my children over the pettiest issues. I was even told that my son looked pale & flushed one day & when I rushed to the school; he was fine, & even playing. I also have went to pick them up over minor nose bleeds, scrapes due to falls & lots of other petty/minor issues that any nurse could attend to & would at any other school. Each issue could have been handled at the school & a note from the school with an explanation would have been just fine. If you would like to keep your job or just don't like leaving work when it's actually not necessary, choose a different school if at all possible!
