Experience the Barstow Difference

Your campus visit is a critical piece of the school selection process. At The Barstow School, we offer specialized visit opportunities at each stage of the admission process. Most families start by attending an open house or scheduling a tour and conclude by arranging a student visit day. While this is Barstow’s suggested visit sequence, we welcome your family tour requests at any time.

As we monitor the impact of COVID-19 in the Kansas City area, we are scheduling virtual open houses, visits and tours during summer and fall 2020. Please contact us for more information about the option that works best for you.

  • Portfolio Submissions, Grades 6-10

    At The Barstow School, we recognize that your child is more than a test score. To determine your child’s readiness for admission, the school uses an assessment that allows a child to present a portfolio of work that they feel best demonstrates why they would be a good fit for matriculation.

    The portfolio should include at least one recent piece of writing and any other recent piece of work that the student would like to share. Applicants entering grades 6–10 must upload portfolio items no later than January 15 for priority consideration.
