Students seeking admission to preschool-grade 5 will complete evaluations during their visit. Students in grades 6-10 are required to submit a portfolio for assessment. Portfolios must consist of at least one recent writing sample as well as one other recent work sample. Students will be assessed for readiness to enter The Barstow School based in part on the examples included in their portfolio. Students should select recent examples that best demonstrate what makes them a good fit for The Barstow School. Students must have a completed application on file prior to submitting a portoflio and to participate in a visit day.
Please call the Office of Admission at 816.277.0391 to schedule visit days and for questions regarding portfolios.
