    It is the Mission of Barnum School to create a healthy and safe environment where the total school community educates all students with the skills and knowledge needed to become literate, productive, and responsible adults and citizens.

    We believe Barnum School will achieve this mission when all of our students are:

    • cooperative, respectful and accepting of each other's differences
    • independent, self-reliant learners who are capable of making effective decisions
    • optimistic and believe in themselves and their own abilities
    • challenged, engaged and having fun learning

    We also believe Barnum School will achieve this mission when all staff:

    • work cooperatively to establish a safe and healthy environment
    • work with children and parents to foster the belief that lack of education is not an option
    • have high expectations for all students
    • have a shared vision and values
    • are positive role models for the entire Barnum School community
    • engage parents in understanding their important role in educating their children.


    Valentines Day Dance will take place at Barnum Gymnasium on February 12. 

    Entry fee is a $1 and snacks will be sold for $1 each. (Students are encouraged to bring $5 for snacks)  

    Come out and have fun with DJ Bam Bam and support our graduating grade 8 students as well as our Student Leadership Team.  

    Hope to see you all there !
