Barnhart is a great school with a wonderful and caring community. I love how integrated the learning is, and that critical thinking and creativity are incorporated very day. Writer''s Workshop is amazing - as a first grader my son has already written and illustrated many amazing stories. Music, PE, art, and Spanish round out his education.

I have a 2nd and 4th grader. I have watched my kids grow and thrive in this school. Barnhart kids have the privilege of truly being part of a small caring environment where everyone knows their names and cares about their well being and their academic growth.
