Welcome to the Barrow County School System and thank you for visiting our website!

 

Our mission in the Barrow County School System is "Boldly Committed to Student Success". We take this very seriously. We are continuously challenging our entire staff to be Barrow BOLD in moving teaching and learning forward in this district. I am firmly convinced that there is no group of people on the planet more committed to seeing students succeed in a warm and caring school environment. The following statements from some of our Barrow school leaders exemplify the outstanding attitude with which we all approach working directly with Barrow County's most precious resource, our children:

As you can see, the leadership of the Barrow County School District, your school district, is up to the challenge! My challenge to our parents and community as we move ever forward is this: Be Barrow BOLD for your children and your school system. Support their teachers and their schools. Without the support of our community our schools cannot be as effective as we need to be. Likewise, without our schools our community cannot thrive and reach its full potential. Please never hesitate to provide us with vital constructive feedback and ideas. We may not always be perfect, but we have each promised this community to do our level best to provide our students with outstanding academic and school programs to help them grow into the best citizens and people they can be.

 

On behalf of our teachers, staff members and Board of Education, thank you for sharing your children with us each and every day!
