Barnesville students are joyful learners who imagine, explore, grow, and achieve.
The Barnesville School of Arts & Sciences offers an innovative preschool through 8th grade education that integrates the humanities, art, math, and science. Cross-curricular teaching encourages students to explore how subjects relate to one another, helping them make connections that spark inquiry and deepen understanding.
Barnesville’s mission of joy, support, and excellence frames a learning environment that is far from standard. Small classes enable skilled teachers to engage each child in an academically challenging environment. Our 30-acre campus in the Montgomery County Agricultural Reserve is our extended classroom, and we integrate nature into everyday learning.
Barnesville is an independent, non-sectarian day school accredited through the Association of Independent Maryland Schools (AIMS) and certified as a Green School by the Maryland Association for Environmental and Outdoor Education.
Barnesville School of Arts & Sciences Reviews
Barnesville truly provides a whole-child approach. Academics are top-notch. But the school really shines in its balanced approach to arts and science, indoor and outdoor instruction and play, and its nurturing approach to social- emotional skill building. Literature choices were thoughtful. Math instruction was solid. The arts program is unmatched in this area.
And finally, the teachers. To me, it's the faculty who are the cornerstone of a superior education. We've all had a teacher who has transformed our lives. There are many here at this school who do just that.
