Green School

Maryland Green School

Barnesville School of Arts & Sciences is proud to be one of the few independent private schools in Montgomery County certified as a Maryland Green School by the Maryland Association for Environmental and Outdoor Education (MAEOE).
Barnesville School is in the unique position of being the only independent private school located on the Montgomery County Agricultural Reserve. Our location provides the ideal setting for connecting our students to the outdoors. We are able to integrate nature into our everyday learning by using this beautiful space as another classroom.

To be certified as a MAEOE Green School, Barnesville demonstrated achievement in three areas: curriculum and instruction, community partnerships, and best management practices. Since receiving our certification in 2011 and recertifications in 2015 and 2019, we have continued our commitment to Green School standards.

The School’s administration and faculty continue to build a curriculum that develops students as good stewards of the environment. The children enjoy learning in the outdoor classroom, getting dirty in the raised bed garden, and exploring on school grounds. There are many ways for children to discover life and connect with nature.
