Community service is an integral part of a Barnesville education, articulated in the School's philosophy statement. Students develop social responsibility and values from involvement in community service programs and through a curriculum where adults model and reinforce those values in school, the broader community, and the world. Barnesville students and faculty participate in both grade-specific and school-wide community service efforts each year.
