Barnesville School of Arts & Sciences Reviews
After researching all the available private schools here in Southern Frederick County, I was dismayed by the few options nearby. After thoughtful consideration, Barnesville fulfilled all of my expectations as a teacher parent. It provided small class sizes, a great amount of time spent outside, many cross-curricular learning opportunities, and a strong community. The teachers are extra caring and it was evident during our time distance learning. If you are looking for a school that offers meaningful relationships where your child is given many opportunities to grow and learn, Barnesville is for you!
The School's commitment to inclusivity and diversity is a major reason why we love being a part of this community. Also, as an outdoor-centric family, supporters of the arts, and lovers of all-things scientific, we could not have picked a better school. Our daughter has access to nature, STEM, drama, music, art, athletics, and a community culture that cherishes its members.
