Barnwell Elementary School



Barnwell Elementary School will have a site visit conducted by the AdvancEd Accreditation team on Tuesday, February 28, 2017. 

AdvancED is a non-profit, non-partisan organization that conducts rigorous, on-site external reviews of Pre-K-12 schools and school systems to ensure that all learners realize their full potential.  Thank you for your feedback and survey completion that has aided in this process. Let's continue to work together in our mission to prepare students for lifelong success by providing individualized learning experiences in an atmosphere where we are igniting a passion for learning.

Principal's Message



On behalf of the faculty and staff, I would like to welcome you to our school. We are extremely delighted to have you as part of the BES family. We look forward to sharing a successful school year with you. One of our goals at Barnwell Elementary School is to ignite a passion for learning in all who enter our building. We also desire to create an impressive degree of parental involvement. In the words of Helen Keller, “alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.” Please help us with this endeavor by volunteering as your schedule allows, attending programs and performances, participating on the School Improvement Council and PTO, and communicating regularly with your child’s teachers.  Collaboratively, we can continue to make Barnwell Elementary School a great place for students to learn. Let’s work together to ignite this passion and blaze new trails for the academic success of all students.


See you at school,


Carolyn A. Anderson, Ph.D.
