Welcome Future Barstow Families

Choosing the right education for your child is one of the most important decisions you can make. We’re excited that you have chosen to explore Barstow!
Barstow is filled with curious students — and teachers who invest time in getting to know each one of them. When teachers know a child’s strengths and interests, they can design individualized learning so every student feels confident, valued and eager to learn.
Our admission team is ready to help you find the right school fit. We look forward to seeing your child graduate from Barstow, whether they begin in preschool, middle school or freshman year, fully prepared for the challenges ahead.

Discover, Apply, Visit

We have limited openings in select grades for the 2021-2022 school year. 
Barstow will offer fully in-person classes beginning Thursday, Aug. 19. As part of our health and safety protocols, our admission office has created both virtual and in-person events and experiences that will introduce you to our school and community in a meaningful and experiential way.

We accept admission applications year round, with a recommended sequence of steps that will help you move easily from inquiry and applying to visiting and enrolling. We'll work together to schedule appointments that work best for you. Our team will help guide you through these steps:
