Barnette has two full day kindergarten classes of twenty students each. Morning academics complimented by afternoon enrichment classes in science and social studies provides a full well-rounded day for our young students. Our kindergarten program builds a strong foundation for first grade literature and math.
Middle School Program
Barnette is a K-8 school where students engage in a family like atmosphere. The middle school program is departmentalized in the mornings with a strong 7/8th grade team that includes a math, literature, and writing teacher. These teachers are the students' homeroom teachers enabling a smooth morning transition among the three classes. Afternoon explorations are multi-age and often include a 6th - 8th grade span. Some science and social studies classes are only 7/8th. Barnette has an extensive "Transitions Program" for 8th grade students, which begins in second semester designed to facilitate the move to high school.
