Teacher with students in the classroom

Middle School

The Barnhart Middle School experience is rich in diversity, academic strength, teamwork, developing complex thinking skills, making connections, seeking patterns, encouraging self-reflection, and building students of strong character.  Barnhart's Middle School program includes a rigorous academic, high school preparatory curriculum in English, Ancient, World and American History, Earth, Life and Physical Science, Algebra, Spanish and daily P.E.  

Students leave Barnhart with a full year of high school Algebra and Spanish I. Due to our rigorous Middle School program, Barnhart students are frequently placed in advanced levels of these subjects as well as honors levels in English, History and Science.

Other important aspects of our Middle School program include our Student Council, our Buddy Program and experiential field trips. Each year we pair a 7th grade student with a kindergarten student as part of a leadership, mentoring and socialization program. During the first week in October each of our Middle School grades attends a week-long trip.
