About Barron Park School

Vision and Values

We are an inclusive school: Students involved in general education, students with disabilities, and students considered working above grade level learn together and from each other. Teachers and support staff team to help children learn and succeed. We offer a comprehensive curriculum with enriched arts experiences. Our greatest achievement is the progress of our students as demonstrated by the quality of their work, positive interactions, art displays, performances, and school/community service.

All students are instructed at their individual learning levels using a variety of curriculum materials. Technology is integrated as a learning tool in all content areas. Support and enrichment are provided based on individual students¹ needs. Therapies are provided in classrooms to the extent possible. Our culture of respect and empathy honors all students for their gifts and encourages them to become caring, mindful contributors in our diverse, global society.
