The Barrow County School System continually strives for excellence in providing the most comprehensive educational programs for its students.
We realize that to ensure a quality of life for all Barrow County Citizens, we must continue to provide and maintain a quality educational system. As we prepare our students to be successful in the 21st century, we realize that it takes "a whole village to educate a child."Therefore, we work very hard to involve parents, business leaders, and community citizens in the educational system.
One important factor in the successful dynamics of the Barrow County School Systems is parental and community involvement. Each school has an active Parent Teacher Organization. Community participation is often sought on matters of curriculum, policy decisions and budget discussions.
Such programs as Partners in Education which involves local businesses, is designed to act as a catalyst in bringing diversified groups together.
Over 100 strong, the program has won three statewide awards and is a vital asset to our School System.
Another program that has proved to be a powerful bonding of community and Barrow County Schools is the Mentor Program. Community members have the opportunity to share experiences and knowledge with students. The influence and guidance of a mentor can make a positive difference in a child's life.
Our Chamber of Commerce can help you "Experience the Barrow County Difference". The foresight and vision of the leadership of our cities and county in planning for the future has produced a quality of life that is unequaled anywhere. The Chamber staff will be happy to assist you or your business in becoming a vital part of Barrow County.
