Principal's Message

A message from Dan Crispino, Principal of John Barry     

    

I am honored to be serving my third year as the Principal of John Barry Elementary School for the 2018-2019 school year.

I have very exciting news regarding the latest state accountability results.  Due to double digit gains in multiple subject areas, John Barry has been recognized by the State of Connecticut as a School of Distinction.  Our overall accountability rating of 83.4 (out of 100) proved to be better than all elementary schools in Wallingford, Southington and all but one school in Cheshire (one school had an index score of 85.1). John Barry’s growth over the last few years is exceptional and has led to us receiving State and National recognition.

In many instances, Barry’s student growth data exceeded district targets and state averages.  Spring SBAC results from 2015-2018 in ELA and math surpassed state growth percentages.

According to Performance Data from 2015-2018, the percentage of students who performed at Level 3 or above in reading and math on the Smarter Balanced Assessment are as follows:

  • Grade 3

    • 41.8% increase in students reading at a Level 3 or above from 2015-2018.

    • 38.7% increase in students achieving at a Level 3 or above in math from 2015-2018.

  • Grade 4

    • 37.8% increase in students reading at a Level 3 or above from 2015-2018.

    • 35.9% increase in students achieving at a Level 3 or above in math from 2015-2018.

  • Grade 5

    • 32% increase in students reading at a Level 3 or above from 2015-201.8

    • 45.7% increase in students achieving at a Level 3 or above in math from 2015-2018.

The John Barry successes are directly attributed to the commitment of the John Barry staff, students and the school community. John Barry students receive the highest-quality instruction from the best teachers the state has to offer.  Your unwavering support and dedication to your children’s education has led John Barry to be a national exemplar.

As your Principal, it is important to me that everyone who steps through our doors-staff, students, and parents are excited to be here! This attitude enables us to meet the challenges of academic excellence in a positive, fun, and supportive environment.

My door is always open, and I welcome your input. Please feel free to stop in, call or email me to discuss any concerns, suggestions or ideas to help make 2018-2019 the best year yet!

Sincerely,

Mr. Daniel Crispino
