Welcome to Barrett Ranch Elementary School, a California Distinguished School.

There are many things that make Barrett Ranch such a special place. Our school is a safe and nurturing place in which respect is a part of everyday life at school. School-wide programs such as PBIS (Positive Behavior Interventions and Support) and Character Counts put a special focus on social and emotional well-being for all students and help foster a special sense of pride and positivity at our school.

The adults work hard to ensure that all academic needs are met- whether a student is struggling (Response to Intervention system) or whether a student is ready for more challenge (Gifted and Talented Education clusters). Our passionate staff is dedicated to teaching and learning.

To learn more about our school, we have scheduled several school tours for new parents. If you are available, please come to the school office on any of the dates below:

  • Wednesday, February 12th at 9:30 am
  • Friday, March 14th at 9:30 am
  • Friday, April 25th at 9:30 am

As you may have noticed, there will be two big changes for the 2014-2015 school year:

First, our kindergarten program will be a full day program in which students will start and end school at the same time as the other grade levels (8:45 am- 2:56 pm).

Second, we will be bringing back our preschool and after school care program next year. Please contact the program director, Rebecca Ward, at 916-726-0224.
