The family structure is a key element for student success. When families are engaged in the learning process, students develop a better self image and are better equipped with the supports necessary to overcome obstacles.

It is vital to help students connect their talents and passions in order to achieve high levels of success. BARR is the perfect program to cultivate this process by identifying and building assets in students. By emphasizing the BARR model at Johnson Central, our students have built stronger self confidence and have improved skill sets in their areas of strength. This has culminated in success throughout all facets of our school, from athletics with two football state championships to academics and a state Governor’s Cup academic title over the first five years of implementing BARR in our school.
