As the principal of Barnwell Middle School, it is my pleasure to welcome everyone to another amazing school year! We are excited to have our new and returning students in the building filling our halls and classrooms with energy and enthusiasm for learning.
The School district is amazing - we intentionally moved into the district 10 years ago and have continued to be amazed with the curriculum, faculty, and continued support to drive excellence in the education of our students. Having children in all three levels of education in Francis Howell, we see the continuity and superior education offered to all students.
The District provides a great education and values diverse thought. My children are well supported in all areas of child development, academically and beyond. I think the district has done a tremendous job in listening to both sides of all issues and coming up with reasonable compromised decisions.
The district does a great job loving our kids and challenging them in their learning in the ways and levels that they need. I wholeheartedly love and appreciate that my child’s teachers worked to bring my son’s reading fluency up to grade level before it hindered his learning or became a belonging or social issue.
Personal property tax bills are arriving in mailboxes across the District and many residents are seeing increases. We want to share some information that might be helpful as you interpret your bill.
