Important Q&A

    What differentiates your school from all others?
    The "&" in Barnesville School of Arts & Sciences serves as a symbol of what we value. It represents the cross-curricular nature of our teaching. It represents partnerships with local art, science, and educational organizations that bring classroom concepts to life through engaging field studies. It represents the many and varied opportunities for personal growth that a Barnesville education offers students beyond academics, such as the Buddy program, sports teams, visual and performing arts, and community service.

    The "&" also represents the personal connections that are the true power of our community -- the close relationships teachers are able to make with each and every student, the lasting friendships students develop with one another across grade-levels, and the bonds families make as our children grow up together.

    The "&" symbolizes the opportunities Barnesville offers students to IMAGINE, EXPLORE, GROW, & ACHIEVE.

  1. I pulled my son from Montgomery County Public Schools after 1 and a half years at a “Blue Ribbon” school, when I found he was not challenged enough. Barnesville School has small classrooms, where teachers know each student, and tailor lessons to them and their learning style. My son is in a 4th grade class with just 9 students and loves all the individual attention he receives!

    The school’s motto is Joy. Support. Excellence. and I find that they exceed my expectations in all three areas. The children are happy to come to school every day (unlike at his prior school), the staff offer fantastic support to each student, and the children excel, so that they may get into practically any high school when they graduate. The location in the Montgomery County Agricultural Reserve is unique and beautiful; the kids get to go outdoors every day, and school projects take advantage of their unique campus.

    Finally, the bus service is fantastic, my son gets dropped off at our home every day, a huge convenience.

    I cannot speak highly enough about the school. I consider it to be the best kept secret in Maryland.

  2. We were drawn to the Barnesville School initially through a ‘gut feeling’ stepping onto campus which promotes Joy, Support and Excellence for each child….our son has lived this for the last four years. He continues to thrive from the investments made by combining arts & humanities, math & science, nature & technology.

    The teachers encourage him to take risks in a protected environment, so that he can be challenged to grow academically and socially, while exploring at the same time. We feel confident that he will be more than prepared for high school.
