In a world of shared borders, knowledge and empathy for multiculturalism are essential to a Barnesville School education. As our students enter the global community, our School encourages them to embrace diversity with an open mind and generous spirit. We strive to introduce our students to all aspects of diversity which include acceptance of diverse intelligences and learning styles; awareness of differences in socioeconomic status; compassion for mental and physical impairments; and understanding of differences concerning age, appearance, gender, race, sexual orientation, and spiritual beliefs. We support a safe and secure environment for all members of our Barnesville family and make respecting differences a school-wide goal. This builds a community true to our mission of joy, support, and excellence.
