I personally was a child of Barboursville School. When there for 11 months, I had the most positive experience, they helped me become the woman I am today. And I greatly appreciate what ALL the staff members had done for me. I'm so glad they had a gentle but firm hand to guide me with.

Hello I am a mother of an adoptive child that was court ordered into Barboursville school. Myself and other families have been treated with the upmost disrespect and discrimination from this facility. They have lied, twisted the truth and have made false alligations. I have spoken to other families who have been treated the same and I am sure there are more. Please, I am asking if you have had negative experiance with Barboursville school and/or the staff please contact me. I know first hand what these people can do and would like to hear your story. Also, even if your experiance was positive I was just wondering how your child is doing after discharge. Please email me at email@example.com
