The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
We value a positive, supportive learning environment. At The Barnesville School, we foster an academically stimulating atmosphere that balances hands-on experiences with traditional teaching methods. In small classes, students learn through a combination of cooperative, independent, and self-directed opportunities. They are challenged to take risks and reach their potential through hard work and persistence in all activities.
We value a curriculum that helps students reach personal academic excellence. The Barnesville School offers a curriculum that includes a strong interdisciplinary foundation to prepare them to be successful in a diverse, ever-changing world. We provide innovative teaching ideas and collaborative exchanges for the sharing of knowledge and ideas. Our goal is to have students acquire the skills, knowledge, and wisdom to make them successful learners and critical thinkers throughout life.
We value social responsibility and the development of personal values. Starting with the first handshake in the morning, The Barnesville School atmosphere encourages respect, responsibility, honesty, integrity, perseverance, and concern for others. We believe students develop social responsibility and values by their involvement in community service programs and through a curriculum where adults model and reinforce these values in school, the broader community, and the world.
