Vision Statement

Our vision is for all students entering Barringer High School will graduate on time and will be college bound and/or career ready.

We believe that all children can achieve success even in adverse circumstances. Knowledge is a powerful antidote for ignorance and provides the defense our students need to combat the lure of negative influences they confront on a daily basis. A well-rounded education will provide the knowledge our students need to contend with in a global market. We will provide a caring and nurturing learning environment, with multiple opportunities to experience new methods of learning.

As educators, we must understand the four R’s. Relevance + Rigor + Relationships = Results. Our students must embrace the concept of life-long learning and it is our responsibility to ensure that they do so. Our curriculum must constantly evolve to address the challenges of a competitive, global workplace along with the increasing demands of higher education. Our students must become ethical men and women who will assume responsibility for future generations. “Oh Alma Mater, Barringer High!”
